16 CD box set - being 14 studio albums including 2 doubles.
According to Pink Floyd Brain Damage site there were a few glitches with this release, the most notable being a misprinting of the inner bag for the second CD in "The Wall".
There are also cases of an album being missed out and duplicates in their places.
The later Japanese release of this box set is basically identical to this box set.
Poor quality fakes exist for this set - more details below.
The original Japanese individual releases are regarded as being of a much higher quality to either of these box sets.

POCP-9194 to POCP-9208 & 9212/3 : 1999-09-29
The first edition of the first series of mini LPs for the Who (target obis) came with inserts that were pre-punched. A binder and T-Shirt accompanied the release. It is not clear how these were obtained but it seems likely that the small yellow coupon on the obi would have been snipped off and the folder at least was awarded on surrendering the full set of coupons.

VICP-5442,3,4 : 1994-09-21
These had been preceded by a much earlier Lotus and a US release of some Rolling Stones albums repackaged for Japan a few short months before these. Neither of these earlier releases was true to the original vinyl although the Stones came close.
The earliest true Minis were two series of MCA Jazz releases from March 1994 (MVCZ-26 to MVCZ-45) including this example: Death and The Flower.
