Summary and Info
I purchased this 3-vol. set of Bobby Fischer's collected games back in the 1990's, and can attest that it has all his famous games and matches, including his 1972 World Championship match with Spassky, and the 1992 Fischer-Spassky rematch. Many, if not most, of the games are well abd deeply annotated.
Vol. 1 covers the years 1955-1960; Vol. 2 goes from 1961-1967, and Vol 3 covers 1968-1992. My only complaint about this set, is that sometimes when the actual moves of games are surrounded by dense annotations, it can be a bit difficult to distinguish the moves of the games from the moves of the analysis, but it's still easier to go through that the footnotes in ECO sometimes! :)
I've long admired Fischer's accomplishments and style of play. It's a tragedy that he never got the professional help that might possibly have enabled him to adjust to live a more normal life.
Anyway, if you can find this collection or any part of it, I recommend it enthusiastically.
