Non-WoT Book Porn (some of a very high quality)


Although I have a serious post planned for later tonight (time permitting), thought I would just regale a few with the past few days' arrivals (mostly purchases) of books that, with one or two exceptions, intrigue me.  Oh, and yes, there's a Crime Masterworks series as well.  Thinking about exploring that, just so my "one crime fiction fan", Brian, can see what I make of his favorite genre of fiction ;)

Oh, and I'm halfway through collecting the entire 1974 Easton Press leatherbound editions of Edward Gibbon's epic The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.  Look nice, don't they?  Already owned vol. 4, so below are the first two volumes.  Enjoy!

I seem to recall that line of books be considered largely problematic. That the selections were at times odd. But hey, maybe it’s not the entry point that matters so much but what you discover along the way.

That's how I'm going to approach it. The Price book was quite good, I thought.
