    My library only had the first volume, I would love to read them all. Is it worth to buy them?.

    Its just that the shipping will be quite expensive to my country.

    The first two volumes are general physics, the third volume is quantum mechanics.
    They are fairly heavy going if you aren't doing a physics degree - particularly they don't cover a lot of the maths background.

    There are quite a few editions so you should be able to find second hand copies easily (amazon or abebooks), you might also be able to get cheap Asian print editions (depends where you live)
