Hi and thanks for the quick reply!

I assume by color plates you mean the frontispieces, so that's good news...

And I like the fact that they used paper and not cloth for the covers.

Still, I think these volumes are a bit overpriced if they're not even sewn copies ... also, the covers are a different color from the original editions ... I would've expected a bit more, especially after reading somewhere that "HarperCollins will now reprint all volumes and keep the original look & feel..." Well, not quite then, eh.

Cheers,

felagund

I think the Print-on-Demand printing process is very different to the traditional process, so it is not possible to keep exactly the "original look & feel".

As I stated earlier, I still thank HarperCollins for using this process and hope more out of print editions will be added soon.
