Several years ago I found in London a very inexpensive (£.90) paperback reproduced in 1995 from material in the Rackham/Jones edition of 1912. Now I have hit the other end of the financial spectrum in this country. I have paid more than the book is worth for this earlier 1994 edition, which zooms further out on the cover's scene of the TH argument outside a door. This 1994 edition also does a much better job rendering this one colored image. The back cover features a red frame around tan, and the spine is red. The interior seems identical except for the change of the date of publication on the back of the title-page. As I mention in commenting on the 1995 edition, this book includes apparently all the Jones texts and all the black-and-white Rackham illustrations. Again, the MSA silhouette suite (130-31) here occurs together on two facing pages with very good effect, since one can see all seven images at once.
