Do not buy this edition
on 29 December 2011
The book itself is excellent, but this edition is a very poor buy indeed, and I recommend against buying it. In fact I returned it for a refund.
If you want a fully illustrated edition, this is not the edition that will provide it. Many illustrations are missing, but this is not made clear in the product description, and the "Look inside" facility is misleading, as, for the first few chapters, all the illustrations are present, but from later chapters, many many are missing, and a few are modern substitutes that add nothing.
A fully illustrated version is well worth having, and if you want an illustrated edition, with ALL of the original illustrations, this can be found elsewhere on the web (Project Gutenberg) free of charge. Otherwise the text-only version is available free of charge here in the Amazon Kindle Store.
