I purchased this as a sort of keep-sake for a family member, and I paid three times as much for the hardcover thinking about durability. However when I received the title, I was very disappointed to find that it looks entirely different than the paperback version. The font doesn't have that old-timey feel to it like the paperback. I mean OK....I can live with that BUT, then I got to a page with some of the drawings taken from the original work published in 1901. The art in the hardcover version is TERRIBLE. It has been shrunken down and is so pixilated (or whatever the term is when speaking of print) that you can hardly make out the detail.
Don't make the mistake of ordering the Hardcover if you care about such things. I myself will likely return this copy and order the paperback as well.
