For each countable ordinal α, let Sα be the Schreier set of order α and XSα be the corresponding Schreier space of order α. In this paper, we prove several new properties of these spaces.

  • 1. If α is nonzero, then XSαpossesses the λ-property of Aron and Lohman and is a (V)-polyhedral space in the sense of Fonf and Vesely.

  • 2. If α is nonzero and 1<p<, then the p-convexification XSαp possesses the uniform λ-property of Aron and Lohman.

  • 3. For each countable ordinal α, the space XSα has the λ-property.

  • 4. For nN, if T:XSnXSnis an onto linear isometry, then Tei=±ei for each iN. Consequently, these spaces are light in the sense of Megrelishvili.

The fact that for nonzero α, XSα is polyhedral and has the λ-property implies that each XSα is an example of a space that solves a problem of Lindenstrauss from 1966 about the existence of a polyhedral infinite dimensional Banach space whose unit ball is the closed convex hull of its extreme points. The first example of such a space was given by De Bernardi in 2017 using a renorming of c0.
