Honestly, I bought it because of the cover - it is soooo beautiful! Also, the contents are, of course, great.
Overall the whole series of leather bound books seem to have a truly talented illustrator - you have to increase his/her salary because... well, let's face it - people mostly buy books in such an amazing cover as a gift.

I really liked this edition.
It actually looks better on the photos, but still it s very nice
The only small issues are the smallish font and the rather thin paper used. I would prefer to have 6 novels in it and have a bit bigger font or thicker paper.
I would also like some illustrations in there, but....
Anyway, a good value for the price.

I bought this book for my bookworm husband. He absolutely loved it as a book to keep on the bookcase rather than read, as it looks great with it's red hardback cover and gold edged pages and books that looked this good are for looking at, not reading. It was very well packaged and arrived within a few days of ordering.
