1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 23 Mar. 2013
I'm disappointed (to say the least) with my Yak-Trax. They were an expensive item (I thought I was buying the best), but within a couple of weeks of ordinary use, the spring coils began to unravel, then one of the thin rubber straps snapped, rendering the pair useless. It is snowing heavily here in the Peak District and it's set to continue. I'll need another pair of snow grips if I don't want to end up in traction, but they wont be Yak-Trax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted, 9 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Paradise Lost (Hardcover)
I am delighted with my copy of Milton's "Paradise Lost" ( I purchased at the same time Poe's "The Raven and other poems"). Both editions are illustrated by Gustave Dores stunningly beautiful engravings. I alrady have "The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner" by the same Arcturus publisher. These volumes are a joy to handle and read. They are beautifully produced, well bound, clearly printed and thoghtfully designed. The text is clear and of a generous size, printed on a good quality ivory coloured paper. I dont presume to comment on the timeless poetry contained in them, but I recommend them to all lovers of beautiful books

5.0 out of 5 stars Gothic Masterpiece, 11 Jan. 2011
Quite apart from its subject, this is a very beautiful book and a joy to handle; Arcturus must be congratulated for offering this fine edition. It is somewhat larger than quarto, very well bound and printed in very clear type on a fine quality slightly ivory tinted paper. The engravings are very crisp and printed at full page size. Anyone coming to Gustave Dore's illustrations for the first time will be justifiably astonished. His breath-taking draughtsmanship and breadth of imagination perfectly complement Coleridges dark brooding gothic theme. I bought two copies - one for a Christmas present and one for myself. I intend to acquire also the edition of Paradise Lost which also has illustrations by Dore
