Default DC's Greatest Stories series

I'm slowly collecting DC's "Greatest stories" series of tpbs from the late 80s/early 90s.
So far I have the Superman, Joker, Team-up, 1950s and Flash volumes.
I've read public library copies of the Batman volumes but wasn't impressed.
However, I have come across references to a Greatest Golden Age Stories volume.
Can someone tell me what stories are in this volume?
