Caniglia! Yes, his work is amazing. I posted pics from the illustrations he did for the (sold out) DLE "A Christmas Carol".

If you like what you see (and I sure did) I bet the O. Henry Stories will be equally beautiful. Although I have to say, at $375 it seems a bit pricey.

I'll be adding this on my wishlist. Pricey yes but there's 30 new paintings and drawings in this book.

I am pleased with my Franklin Library copy which I got for $35.

As a fan of the LEC, I have to say it is nice to have stories signed by the artist! Not as exciting as having them signed by the author of course, but for most classics that is no longer possible. As pointed out, this does appear to have a large number of illustrations, so arguably that is why the cost is significantly higher. Arguably.

>6 astropi:
Since when is 10 color illustrations and several onamentals a large number? Many classical artists provided scores or even hundreds for their books.

Also, 208 pages of text is mighty skimpy compared to my 972-page Dorset edition.

8: Well, color illustrations are much more expensive to reproduce. At least high-quality illustrations. Even during the golden age of book making, illustrators such as William Russell Flint would produce about 10 color illustrations for a book. Engravings (B&W) were much cheaper to produce. Today of course, it's a bit of a lost art.

I could not be more excited about this book. I already have "A Christmas Carol" from him.
