No Hemingway?? No John Cheever? Raymond Carver? Otherwise great!

I'm sure I don't need to tell you about the quality of the work therein. If you're reading this review you're most likely just wondering about weather it's as handsome an edition in reality, as it is in the picture; or whether it's the whole "drive thru menu" effect. I genuinely mean it when I say the above pictures do not do this masterfully crafted collection justice (through & through). A LOT of care went into this and I'm lucky to have snagged one up before they're gone. Books like these are very, very rare. Beautiful, classic design with a modern edge. Hardy, solid construction and high quality materials. And as I said, the selection is perfect -- a wonderful representation of American Literature. This is something you'll love for years to come, something you'll love to see on your shelf, and something you'll love to pass down to your kids/grandkids. This and the Sherlock Holmes Omnibus are by far my favorite in Barnes & Noble's **Leather-bound Classics** series. You can actually feel and smell the leather on this one too. Anyways, yeah. It looks great. Highly Recommended (if you couldn't already tell from my schmucky fawning). Solid 10/10.

Nicely made and a traditional cover styling of the type that makes one wish were used on all Leatherbound Classics instead of the usual smudging painted cartoon engravings and cheap dime-store stickers normally found. I dinged this 1 star for the smaller print.

I had bought a few of these Leatherbound Classics on Amazon in the UK and they were fantastic, so I thought to look on the Barnes and Noble site itself and found many titles not available in Britain! This Classic American Short stories book piqued my interest as I am a fan of the short story format and I thought it would make a good addition to my growing Leatherbound collection! I am looking forward to reading them. The book itself looks amazing - beautifully intricate design work on the leather cover which looks and feels so sumptuous. Very very good indeed. I was also very impressed with the delivery service here to the United Kingdom. I ordered this on the 3rd May and got it delivered on the 9th! When I ordered it said I could be waiting until the 24th May! Much faster delivery than I expected from the US so well done for that!
