I got this for a friend a while ago after which the Amazon price kept rising. I don't know how long it will remain at this price. Anyway, I don't know much about it myself so I'll cut and paste one of the glowing reviews from Amazon below:

I agree completely with the enthusiastic reviews here. This is an absolutely outstanding set, at an amazingly low price. Jacqueline du Pr?as a truly remarkable musician, and her verve, thoughtfulness and sheer brilliance show in every one of these fine recordings. It is true that the notes are basic at best, but at this price for 17 superb CDs I don't think one can carp. Don't hesitate - it's a fantastic set.

Here's a (fairly complete) list of the works included:
