Little Black Classics Set

# UL8862 Boxed set of eighty paperbacks
No Longer Available
To celebrate the eightieth anniversary of Penguin Books in 2015, the iconic UK publisher mined its impressive catalogue to release eighty volumes in a new "Little Black Classic" series: concise (about 60 pages each) chunks of masterful literature, in a pocket-sized format (6½"x4½" paperbacks) sold at a reasonable price (less than $2 a pop). This boxed set collects those first eighty titles in one 19"x6½" slipcase containing an expansive and varied selection of fiction, essays, poetry, and maxims, from Boccaccio's bawdy fourteenth-century tales of Mrs. Rosie and the Priest (#1) to the ancient Buddhist aphorisms from The Dhammapada (#80). Whether you revisit a favorite classic from school days like Poe's chilling The Tell-Tale Heart (#31) or Chaucer's comical The Wife of Bath (#28); enjoy a "new" work by a favorite author like Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, or Emily Brontë; or discover a classic from another culture, you'll be entertained and enriched by any selection you choose! The collectible miniature library makes a perfect gift for students, graduates, commuters, retirees...any serious reader on your list. (AG)
