    Dear all teachers
    I am still checking whether the spelling of ‘compleated’ on the cover is correct. Any hints? Thanks!

    Welcome.

    It's correct.

    COMPLEAT
    Etymology: It is an architypal, seventeenth century spelling of the word complete. It derives from the roman form of the word complir. Around sixteen hundred, the word became accented "complete" by Marlow Chapman and William Shakespeare. (OED)
