Updating the Easton Press photos (which I plan on using when I review the books pictured here) to reflect new arrivals and new arrangements. Recent arrivals in this photo include Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, Miguel Cervantes' Don Quixote, Henry James' The Portrait of a Lady, and The Poems of Robert Browning.
In this picture, new arrivals include Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage, Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary, and Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales.
Only three new purchases in this photo: Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, Ivan Turgenev's Fathers & Sons, and Plato's The Republic.
Three more in this one: Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, Conrad's Lord Jim, and Charles Dickens' Great Expectations.
All of these have been pictured before, minus perhaps the few Franklin Library leatherette books I've acquired recently (I'm planning on trading those out later and placing them with Franklin Library full-leather books from their list of "100 Greatest Books" that aren't also found on the Easton Press edition). Might buy a few more Folio Society editions as well in the coming months.
Lots of wonderful re-reads ahead in the coming weeks and months, it seems. And I think it's safe to say that if one wants outstanding cover pictures, these beat trade releases hands down.
