The set is currently pre-ordering for 14 pounds. I don't know what the retail price is, but that's pretty cheap for anyone (like me) who doesn't own any of the films yet, considering the individual films cost 7-9 each. I went ahead and pre-ordered.

L K Weston's wonderful words at DVD Outsider
For those yet to see the work of Miklós Jancsó, one of Hungarian cinema's most revered and influential practitioners, this set is a perfect introduction. For those already enamoured with his potent and poetic brand of cinema, this collection is a beautifully presented celebration of it. An essential purchase.
