  • A Tale of Two Cities






    Explore Dickens' classic tale of order and disorder, death and resurrection withA Tale of Two Cities.


    Taking place in London and Paris in the eighteenth century, in the years leading up to and during the French Revolution, Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities is one of injustice, revenge, rebirth, love, and sacrifice.


    Originally published in thirty-one weekly installments in 1859, this novel is uncharacteristic for Dickens as it lacks comic relief, as well as a protagonist, though London and Paris are considered to be the true protagonists of the story. The turbulence found in this epic tale is also believed to reflect the turmoil in Dickens' personal life at the time. Complete and unabridged, A Tale of Two Cities is an essential collectible that is both elegant and portable and features a new introduction by Brian Bartell.

  • Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn

    Revel in Huck Finn's adventure on the Mississippi River in this American masterpiece by Mark Twain.


    "All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called 'Huckleberry Finn'." - Ernest Hemingway


    A favorite among young readers and adults alike, Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, first published in 1884, is considered to be the author's masterpiece, as well as one of the best American novels ever written.


    In order to escape his abusive father, Huckleberry Finn fakes his own death. He meets up with the runaway slave Jim, and the two begin a new, carefree life on a raft traversing the Mississippi River. Despite their travels bringing them more trouble than expected and the fear of being returned to their old lives, Huck Finn and Jim form a bond that helps protect them from the judgments of a hypocritical society that claims to value civilization even as it benefits from the horror of slavery.


    Many readers see Adventures of Huckleberry Finn as a children's book because Huck is a boy. However, the book's moral themes and metaphors are relevant for almost any age and situation. Huck rejects his Aunt Sally's attempts to protect him in favor of the entering the unknown wild. He simply values his own personal freedom and sense above all else - a quintessential American trait.


    Complete and unabridged, this elegantly designed, clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Steven Frye.

  • Emma (Knickerbocker Classics)

    Dive into a world of romance, village life and even a little silliness in Jane Austen's timeless novel.


    Despite the fact that Jane Austen set out to write a story with heroine whom she said that "no one but myself will much like," Emma has resonated with readers since its original publication in 1815 and has been retold many times for television and movies.


    Self-satisfied Emma Woodhouse thinks she is above romance of any kind, but when she decides she is a great matchmaker and sets out to find a wealthy husband for her friend, the sweet yet pitiable Harriet Smith, she crosses paths with the charming Mr. Knightley. Even though Emma tries to ignore her feelings for him, she ends up marrying him and realizes that "Perfect happiness, even in memory, is not common."


    Beyond the romance, Emma is full of humor and wit and is also a commentary on upper-class social manners at the turn of the nineteenth century. The title character herself, rather you love her or hate her, is both inescapably self-delusional and rather fun to imagine.


    Complete and unabridged, this elegantly designed, clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Alison Fraser.

  • Great Expectations

    Enjoy the classic tale of adolescence, growth, and loyalty, all set in Victorian London.


    What this cautionary tale of a young man raised high above his station by a mysterious benefactor lacks in length, it more than makes up for in its remarkable characters and compelling story. Charles Dickens' Great Expectations begins with young orphaned Philip Pirrip--Pip--running afoul of an escaped convict in a cemetery. This terrifying personage bullies Pip into stealing food and a file for him, threatening that if he tells a soul "your heart and your liver shall be tore out, roasted and ate." The boy does as he's asked, but the convict is captured anyway, and transported to the penal colonies in Australia. Having started his novel in a cemetery, Dickens then ups the stakes and introduces his hero into the decaying household of Miss Havisham, a wealthy, half-mad woman who was jilted on her wedding day many years before and has never recovered. Pip is brought there to play with Miss Havisham's ward, Estella, a little girl who delights in tormenting Pip about his rough hands and future as a blacksmith's apprentice.


    Complete and unabridged, this elegantly designed clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Grace Moore.

  • Moby Dick

    Journey to the heart of the sea with this larger-than-life classic.


    Regarded as a Great American Novel, Moby Dick is the ultimate tale of seeking vengeance.


    Narrated by the crew member Ishmael, this epic whaling adventure follows the crew of the Pequod, as its captain, Ahab, descends deeper and deeper into madness on his quest to find and kill the white whale that maimed him. Beyond the surface--of ship life, whaling, and the hunt for the elusive Moby Dick--are allegorical references to life--and even the universe--in this masterpiece by Herman Melville.

  • Oliver Twist

    Enjoy the classic rising-from-adversity tale of the little boy who only wants more.


    A favorite among young readers and adults alike, Charles Dickens' second novel,Oliver Twist, was first published in 1838 and has been made into a number of stage, television, and film adaptations, including the 1968 Academy Award-winning film.


    Oliver Twist tells the tale of the orphan Oliver, who is sent from the miserable conditions of a workhouse to work for an undertaker. He escapes, only to get caught up with the Artful Dodgers, a street gang of young pickpockets, led by the evil Fagin. Despite Oliver's bad start in life, he is able to rise above his circumstances.


    Dickens' book was one of the first to realistically portray the seedy street life in Victorian London, bringing attention to the plight of child labor and street urchins. Dickens believed that novels shouldn't just entertain, but should help people understand each other and see the goodness inherent in every person. He thought that fair play and honesty, if not thwarted by some external force, is the natural order of life. However, this can be irretrievably lost if it is subjected to ungoverned corrupting influences.


    It's a little melodrama, a little adventure, and a lot of fun to read. Complete and unabridged, this elegantly designed, clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Monica Feinberg Cohen.

  • Pride And Prejudice (Knickerbocker Classics)

    Enjoy Jane Austen's mastery of irony, dialogue and realism in this unforgettable love story.


    One of the most beloved books of all time, Pride and Prejudice-Jane Austen's most popular book- has been resonating with readers since it was first published in 1813 and has been adapated many times for television, movies, and books.


    When headstrong and independent Elizabeth Bennet, one of five sisters, is required to find a wealthy husband, her encounter with the arrogant Mr. Darcy leads to one of the most entertaining and satisfying courtships ever imagined. Beyond the romance, Pride and Prejudice is a book full of humor and wit that is also a commentary on upper-class social manners at the turn of the nineteenth century.


    Even though it is concerned with love and marriage, the novel is a rejection of Romanticism, a popular way of imagining the world at that time. Austen preferred to highlight the rational abilities of her characters and not portray them as completely controlled by their emotions. However, the people in the book aren't robots, and Austen shows universal situations in a perfectly clear light--embarrassment when someone is foolish, the nervous feeling of falling in love, and the chagrin caused by making a big mistake.


    Austen's mastery of irony, dialogue, and realism support character development and make Pride and Prejudice a pure pleasure to read. Complete and unabridged, this elegantly designed, clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Deborah Lutz.

    Jane Austen's debut novel, Sense and Sensibility has been resonating with readers since it was first published in 1811 and has been made into a number of adaptations.


    The Dashwood sisters couldn't be more different. While Elinor lives her life in a reasonable manner, Marianne tends to make decisions following her heart. But when it comes to finding a husband, the sisters realize, through much trial and error, that a combination of their personalities is ideal when it comes to finding true happiness. Beyond the romance, Sense and Sensibility is chock-full of humor and wit that is also a commentary on British middle-class society at the turn of the nineteenth century.


    Austen's mastery of irony, dialogue, and realism support character development and make Sense and Sensibility a pure pleasure to read. Complete and unabridged, this elegantly designed, clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Christina Bartolomeo.
