Originally launched in 1974, the various Marvel Treasury Editions were generally reprints of previously published work although some contained new material. Done before the widespread publication of collected edtions in trade paperbacks and graphic novels as readers know of now, the last one was 1984’s Superman and Spider-Man Marvel Treasury Edition.
