Tafsir al-Qur'an al-Azim more popularly known as Tafsir ibn Kathir is a classical Sunni Islam tafsir (commentary of the Qur'an) by Allama Ibn Kathir. It is considered to be a summary of the earlier tafsir by Tabari, Tafsir al-Tabari. 
It is thought to be one of the Most Comprehensive and Complete Explanation and Commentary of The Noble Qur'an Currently available in Languages other than Arabic

Note: This set appears to be more complete than the Abridged Darussalam English translation, it appear less solely because of the compact print.
The Full Chain of Narrations have not been translated and the Israelite tales and stories which Ibn Kathir does sometimes mentions in the Arabic have also been excluded.
Apart from the above it appears that the complete Tafsir of Ibn Kathir has been translated in these Four Compact Volumes.

About Hafiz Ibn Kathir
He was Emaad Ed-Deen Isma'eel Ibn 'Umar Ibn ibn Katheer , originally from Busra (Syria) – and raised in Damascus. He followed the Shafi`ee school of thought. Ibn Kathir was born in the year 700 AH or little later in an area called Majdal, near Busra, west of Damascus. His father died when he was only four years old and was taken in by his brother and moved to Damascus in 706. Here, he learned from great scholars such as Ibn Asakir, Ishaq ibn Yahya al-Amudi and the great Ibn Taymiyyah who was extremely close to him. He also studied under various other sheikhs who gave him permission in fiqh and Hadith. He made many academic contributions to Islamic sciences.

He made many academic contributions to Islamic sciences. The following are amongst his most prominent:
Tafseer of the Qur’an, Al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah: a history of Muslims from Adam until Ibn Kathir’s time, At-Takmeel: a book on the science of Asmaaul Rijal (profiles of transmitters of Hadith), Jami`ul Masaneed: a book that collects the Hadith from ten major books of Hadith, , The classes of Shafi`ee scholars: a list of scholars following the Imam, Extraction of the traditions of Tanbeeh (a Shafi`ee book of jurisprudence), The commentary on al-Bukhari (which he did not finish), The book of laws (again, he did not complete it), The summary to the science of Hadith; a synopsis to the introduction of Ibn Saah’s work, Extraction of the traditions to the summary of Ibn Hajib, Musnad of the two sheikhs (Abu Bakr and Umar), Biography of the Prophet, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, The epistle of Jihad.

Many of These have been translated into the English Language (Even though some are Abrdged Translations),

Al-Hafiz Ibn hajar Al-Asqalani said,”Ibn Kathir lost his sight just before his life ended. He died in Damascus in 774A.H. May Allah grant him Mercy and make him amongst the residents of Jannah(Heavenly Garden)
