Bantam Classics

Beginning in January 2003, Bantam Classics—the imprint that


makes great literature available, accessible and affordable for
classrooms and school libraries—will be getting a makeover.
• All-new full page art, typography, and covers
• Interior text re-set for greater legibility
• Pocket-sized with high quality paper and a sturdy binding
• All for the same low price!
Each title will still contain the same complete text of the time-honored
work as well as the authoritative translations, criticism, and introductory
essays that have made the Bantam Classics line valuable to teachers,
librarians, and most importantly, students. Our first delivery of new
and improved Bantam Classics are marked below.
