Rebecca Huston (telynor) | 1 comments I've been collecting the Folio Society's volumes of Lang, and they are lovely to look at, with new introductions and illustrations. Expensive, tho', which is the tricky part.

Oh wow, you have the nice versions. I splurged and bought the paperbacks from Dover a few years ago, and I'm glad I did. I also got them on Kindle.
