Cheap, compact, and consistent

Absolutely amazing value! Dante's Divine Comedy is a capital c Classic. The Signets Classics edition is fabulous because it's compact and cheap, and has one translator over the three books. I now have an amazing addition to my bookshelf for a grand total of $22!show more
