Current tally: Yes 12, No 0
Chime in with your opinion as to where the thumbnail link should lead. Choices are:

To the photo album, which is where they lead now.
To the LT discussion page.
To the Easton Press page. Some have been deleted from their catalog.
Somewhere else.

Is anyone having a delay in load time?

I almost wish you were building more of a dedicated Wikipedia-like site for this stuff - one with a limited number of approved editors, which wouldn't include EP personnel. What you've done is great for LT, but LT's facilities are too limiting and/or cumbersome. I'll vote Yes but would rather see a bigger, more comprehensive, and more versatile datastore built.

I almost voted "No", since I am an idealist who cares more about the written word, and the content of the book is more important than any superfluous ornamentation added by photos.

Oh, come on! We all love the photos! If we were all extremely practical we would all be buying Penguin Classic paperbacks and none of us would be on this forum. We like the pictures, the feel, the look of visual feast of these books. We want to see a beautiful book, feel the added luxury of the leather and heavy weight textured paper, enjoy the quality illustrations; it all adds to the reading experience. We buy these DLEs to make enjoyment of these books as much of an experience as we can possibly have. If I could read each one while sitting on a beach in Barbados, or sitting in the Bodleian Library at Oxford, I would.

So yes, we love the photos, Wootle. Thank you so much for adding the additional thumbnails of each. With a mere title, I could possibly confuse it with an older publication, but with the thumbnail I instantly recall each book.

This is a tremendous resource. So thank you for taking the time and effort to put all this together. If I could vote "Yes" more than once, I would. So yes, this is definitely a "YES" vote from me!

Now if you can simply subsidize my purchase of the books you list... :)

I must be missing something, >7 Wootle: When I click on the thumbnail, I get an enlarged version of that photo, but it doesn't lead me anywhere else. Is it supposed to?

Update: I figured it out. Clicking on a thumbnail at the top gets me the full library, but clicking on the thumbnail in the individual description doesn't. I need more chocolate.

Having now had an opportunity to personally view 7 of the 17 books in this series, I’d like to make a general comment. It is almost certain that it is the finest set EP has ever produced. The cover designs, the pictorial slipcases, the outstanding art, the quality of the paper and print, and the sometimes unique endpaper designs make them uniformly gorgeous, and the signatures will be an added bonus for many collectors.

The downside, of course, is that they are pricey. The first half-dozen were priced in the $200-$300 range, but later the ones have been around $100 more. While not an insignificant investment for most of us, EP’s practice of publishing only about 3 new ones each year makes collecting a full set feasible. Most are still available, while the older ones go for $400-$500 on eBay.

Kudos to Easton Press for doing it right.

>25 jroger1:
It’s really tough to pick a favorite. I’m a sucker for colorful art such as Tarzan and Doctor Moreau, but I really love the painting of the hound in Baskerville. The gray-toned paper in Baskerville seems to be controversial, but I think it adds to the mysterious atmosphere of the story.

29hamletscamaro
Apr 10, 2018, 6:20pm Top

>25 jroger1:, >27 Wootle:, I can't speak for jroger1, but my favorite is probably the Hound of the Baskervilles. For me, it had the best mix of artwork I really liked, nice paper, print, etc. I've written a couple of times about it so I won't repeat. I have 6 of the 17 (Christmas Carol, Hound of the Baskervilles, Dracula, Poe, War of the Worlds, O'Henry), I agree that I quite like the series, not all of the artwork is my favorite. As these are larger format and aren't the longest stories, they have printed these on very nice paper, which for me is half the draw. I enjoy the tactile experience as I read the books. They are a bit pricey, which is why I don't have more, but I do have another 4 on my short list that I plan to pick up in between other acquisitions. We'll see if they hold out. I know Metamorphosis is already on the Limited Quantities list.

My vote would probably go to Tarzan. This DLE was released to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the book. More importantly, you don't see many "fine" editions of Tarzan despite the popularity. And by "many" -this is the only fine edition I know of. Also, Bob Eggleston is a well respected master illustrator.

34jroger1
Apr 11, 2018, 5:45pm Top

There are a few anomalies in this series worth noting, though none is terribly serious. I’ve mentioned elsewhere that The Prince is the only nonfiction text. Tarzan is the only one with a limitation of 800, all the others being 1,200. And Dracula is the only one not 11 inches high; it is only 10 inches and would look out of place shelved with the others.

Dracula also looked out of place crawling along the stone walls of the outside of his castle.

37hamletscamaro
Apr 11, 2018, 11:08pm Top

>36 treereader:, And it is generally true that people where shorter on average several hundred years ago, so it could be said that Dracula might look out of place in a crowd of modern taller people. So from that perspective the book height may be reflective of possible height disparity, so I am fine with the difference.

May 5, 2018, 8:45pm Top

>54 jroger1: I don't think so. We've had 4 announced this year, which is about one a month, which used to be fairly typical or even a little faster than normal. Members used to complain about so many so fast, but now that there is such a variance of titles, nobody seems to want all of them but rather pick and choose, it's a decent rate of release.

I would like to see them drop it to six a year and be pickier about what gets produced and make better editions the way they used to, and occasionally still do.

With so many on the endangered list, perhaps they are shortening the limitation on some of the slower sellers.

59jroger1
Edited: May 5, 2018, 9:58pm Top

>58 Wootle:
The Prince is one that doesn’t interest me. Also, O Henry doesn’t fit the horror/fantasy/sci-fi theme of the series. Neither does Animal Farm really, as it is more like satire/philosophy. And I already have a very nice Beowulf from Folio Society.

Do you know how much Christmas Carol sold for in February?

60Wootle
Edited: May 5, 2018, 10:29pm Top

Christmas Carol sold somewhere between $354-362. The best offer is hard to pin down unless it falls between many other sales. I do know of copies selling for much less in the last year however.

Edit: With a little more research it appears to have sold for $360.

>52 Wootle: "Six titles announced in 2017, 0 in 2018. Is this series finished?"

My worry exactly. I will be shocked if they don't at least produce Frankenstein for the 200th anniversary. I think this is the best series they have ever done. I recently obtained Tarzan, and WOW! I think it's the best in the series by far. When I ordered it I didn't realize every chapter had a header illustration, plus the illustrated endpapers are stunning. The book also has the best quality, soft leather IMO. I wish Easton used the same leather on all the books in this series. Everything about this edition just seems like the quality is better than the others I have seen in person or own. Great story too. This is my first time reading it. I'm half way through it, and I can't wait to get home to see how it ends. It's a real page turner for me. I pick it up for only $295 from Abebooks and it was completely worth it.

>63 jroger1: Right. I was just referring to Tarzan. I wish they all had unique chapter headpieces and designer end pages, but I believe Tarzan is the only edition with both features.

P.S. by "unique chapter headpieces" I mean each chapter has a different illustration, not one that is duplicated like in Phantom of the Opera for example.

I was able to track down the flyer for Dracula today and have uploaded it to the album. If anyone has flyers for:

Tarzan of the Apes
A Christmas Carol
The War of the Worlds

I would be very happy if they could make them available. You can email them to me or post them in their respective threads if possible.

BTW, since the new catalog has Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde listed as "Last Chance" I called and ordered my copy. They had about 60 copies left.

>73 hamletscamaro: Good to know. Guess I'll have to do the same next week. Don't want to miss that one.

Inferno is out of stock but will apparently get another print run. Availability is shown for November.

So EP has already put Dr. Moreau on sale at 10% and Macbeth on sale at 20%, do we think we might get any more DLE's included in the Black Friday sale? These had both been on my list and been bumped up when on sale.

I had been on the fence about Dr. Moreau, but had been warming on the illustrations. When it went on sale I thought I would bite.
Macbeth on sale was a no brainer for me. However, I think with the higher price had not been moving for them. Since EP never changes the price on a book (except sales) I wonder if this was simply priced too high for their customers.

If you missed these, they will be back on sale Friday.

Also, thanks again to Wootle, for keeping these lists up to date on the various collections.

EDIT: Corrected my "King Lear" to "Macbeth".

>77 supercell:, yes, I should have listed Macbeth, and corrected my original posting. I have King Lear on the brain since I just finished re-reading the play before watching the new Anthony Hopkins movie.

As you say, I don't think they will list Metamorphosis since that is down to 57 copies on the limited quantities page. I wouldn't be surprised to see The Prince, as I haven't even heard anyone here say that they have purchased it. Maybe I am forgetting a thread.

So yes, possible one more in this year's sale, possibly O-Henry (which I do have and with which I am very pleased), and the Prince would be the other option. But since thy already have 2, possibly not.

I would like to take advantage of the sale, but I have to pick up Baskervilles before it sales out, which will be coming up in the next couple of months. And then Jekyll and Hyde shortly after that, even though that is probably only the first half printing.

Phantom of the Opera sold out without ever having gone on to the Limited Quantities page. Other books have done this, so this may not be an indication of anything, but we were talking and wondering if it was only the first half of the print run that sold out. Does anyone here have any edition from 601 to 1200? We're thinking this may yet come back.

Anyone?

>81 Wootle:, you beat me to it. I hadn't caught up with the new messages. Lets see what people say.

I did want to pick up this volume and was surprised it sold out so quickly. I'm hoping this was simply the first half of the run.

Thanks for posting the pole.

>82 hamletscamaro: I really have a hard time believing an eleven month sell-out for 1200 copies. I suppose it is possible. The poll looks like some over 600 votes. So we may be late to the party.

>82 hamletscamaro: has been kind enough to take a group photo for us. It's at the top in case you shot past it.

>84 Wootle:, thanks! If anyone is a professional photographer and wants to swing by my house for a better photo, let me know. :)

I'll take a new photo once I have recovered from Black Friday and can order a couple more books.

I placed the volumes (for those I have ordered) in the order of their release for ease of reference. If anyone has a more complete collection and is willing to take a photo, I'm more than willing to have my photo replaced.
