My review is less about the product and more about the woeful packaging that Amazon.com used to shipped it to me (USA to Australia)... The title looked fantastic and I thought it would make a great addition to my growing collection of Penguin Classics. However when it arrived words cannot described how disappointed I was. Instead of using an appropriately sized box the packaging department had used a very large box with NO protective materials so the boxed set of books were free to move about in the box on the journey from the USA to Australia. The outer cover was damaged beyond repair and torn on every side. The books themselves were dented and damaged... Very disappointed and upset with how Amazon.com handled the issue....

I'm giving this as a Christmas gift so I was a little disappointed when I found the casing around the 3 books was dented on the back side, but the books are ok.

Thank you for your timely shipment.
