Hidden Classics Collection - 10 Books (Collection)



In this compelling collection, Oneworld Classics have sought out ten wonderful novels from across the world that they - and we - feel deserve to be much better known. Some are less famous works from very well-known authors like Dickens, Hugo and Dostoevsky, while others are widely read in their home countries but have yet to reach a large readership in the UK. With stories as page-turning as The Black Spider - in which a village makes a deal with the Devil - you should lose no time in trying these lost classics!

Titles in this collection (10)
  • The Last Day Of A Condemned Man - Victor Hugo
  • The Devil's Elixirs - E.T.A Hoffmann
  • Peter Schlemihl - Adelbert Von Chamisso
  • A Strange Manuscript Found In A Copper Cylinder - James De Mille
  • The Haunted House - Charles Dickens
  • The Sorrows Of Young Werther - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
  • Notes From The Undergound - Fyodor Dostoevsky
  • The Monk And The Hangman's Daughter - Ambrose Bierce
  • The Good Soldier - Ford Maddox Ford
  • The Black Spider - Jeremias Gotthelf

Wonderful Collection -

These books all look very nice and have interesting information about the authors inside. So far I've only read Notes from Underground and that was really good. I'm excited to read the rest of these bargain books.

Exceptional Collection -

A superb selection of literature; which includes one of my favourite stories The Black Spider. This collection offers amazing value for money. The books are beautifully presented and make an eye-catching addition to your bookcase.

"Stimulating and intriguing collection" -

I liked these books the moment I unpacked them, and am enjoying reading them. It's kick-started my reading habits again. More please!

"Essential reading" -

I bought this set as i was specifically looking for The Sorrows of Young Werther. I have now read 6 of the 10 and they are all timeless classics as relevant today as ever. They all contain an introduction by the translator and/or notes to help put the original novel in context. Peter Schlemihl is wonderful, whilst Notes from Underground is simply life changing. Still got Vicot Hugo, Ford Madox Ford and Hoffman and Ambrose Pierce to go, can't wait! Buy this set for a book lover and they will thank you forever.
