I greet you, fellow Wilkie enthusiasts. It's November! So all this waiting is finally over and we can sink into our books without feeling any guilt.
In this post I shall introduce my copy of The Moonstone!
This is what it looks like, it is from the series called Oneworld Classics, of which I heard for the first time. But the book doesn't look too shabby, so maybe I can stumble upon some other books from this series in the bookshop. (Also, it was a lot cheaper than, say, Penguin Classics edition.)
The length of the story itself is 460 pages and there are several nifty additions to the story, such as
* photos of Wilkie, his family, his women, and his home (see photo above);
* preface, x2;
* notes on the text;
* extra material: Wilkie Collins's life, Wilkie Collins's works, Adaptations, Select bibliography, Acknowledgments (by the publisher) and the list of Oneworld Classics books.
This edition was published in 2007.
