Lovely versions of the collected works of the same leather series

I am thrilled that B&N is now creating single titles in their leatherbound classis series. I tend to disagree with the review posted; I don't see, logically, how a single title could be as large as the other leatherbound classic books B&N has been putting out. Those are collections of several novels and this is just ONE novel. Unless you are expecting large print or something, it just doesn't make sense, the book is going to be a fraction of the size. The images of these books show lovely printed covers and does not show or say they have gold edging. They are, as listed, single works to be enjoyed, that look lovely on my shelf right next to the collected works of Poe, Austen, Shakespeare and the Narnia series.

Warning: book does not fit the collection

I love books. Not only the stories in them but the books themselves, as many of you do. Naturally I was drawn to this leatherbound collection. I own 10 books in the series.
This morning I received Pride and Prejudice, Huck Finn, and Dracula and was sadly disappointed. ...

This morning I received Pride and Prejudice, Huck Finn, and Dracula and was sadly disappointed. These 3 books do not fit in my collection as they were advertised to do. The books are smaller in demension, pages are not gold edged, covers are not illustrated. The books just have a much lower quality overall. The publisher definetly went cheap on us.
I was looking forward to buying every book in the series that interested me in the future. If this is their new standard; count me out.

    This review is not of Jane Austen's work, but that of this editi

    This review is not of Jane Austen's work, but that of this edition/release itself.  I bought this from B&N as a gift to my girlfriend, mainly because it's a book I believe every woman should read, but also because she likes the color blue.  This cover has a nice appearance with a bright blue color and fancy lettering.  I began reading this the other day, and never have I seen such overlook on the part of the editors!  Within the first 16 pages I think I came across 5 or 6 errors in the text!  Periods before hyphens, spaces between letters in the middle of a word, the wrong letter typed in a word, changing the entire word's intended meaning, etc.  My favorite thus far occurs on the top of page 8, and reads: " Mr. Bingley was obliged to be in town the following day, and consequently unable to accept the honour of their invitation, &c." [sic]   Seriously?? "&c."?  Pathetic.  If you judge books by their covers and like pretty colors, then buy this edition.  If you prefer correct content and proofreading from a publisher, then buy another version.
