Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0099511320, Paperback)

"Vintage Lust" is a limited edition gift pack which consists of beautifully designed separate volumes of "Tom Jones" by Henry Fielding and Martin Amis's critically acclaimed "The Rachel Papers". "Vintage Lust" is just one of ten "Vintage Classic Twins" to collect. Each twin consists of two books: a specially designed limited edition of one modern classic title and one established classic work. The books in each pair have been carefully selected to provide a thought-provoking combination. "Tom Jones": One of the cleverest and funniest novels ever written, and is Henry Fielding's greatest achievement. "Tom Jones", born a foundling, grown into a gallant and irresistible hero, romps through the English countryside getting himself into all kinds of trouble through his good nature and eye for the ladies. Betrayed by jealous relatives, Tom is exiled from home and must undergo a variety of trials and adventures in his quest to be reunited with his one true love. The "The Rachel Papers": Charles Highway, a precociously intelligent and highly sexed teenager, is determined to sleep with an older woman before he turns twenty. Rachel fits the bill perfectly and Charles plans his seduction meticulously, sets the scene with infinite care - but it doesn't come off quite as Charles expects...
