THE BELLE SAUVAGE LIBRARY (CASSELL)
Series note: "Penguin Books are famous as publishers not only of reprints but also of 'originals' which have become standard definitive works, winning a reputation for authority and excellence in their fields unsurpassed in any format. In response to widespread demand for a permanent hard-backed edition of the 'originals'. Cassell are publishing a series of the finest and best-known titles in a more durable form. Where necessary the illustrations and text have been brought up-to-date. All titles illustrated in the Penguin edition, and some not so endowed, have been fully illustrated in the Cassell edition."
