WELCOME TO WORDSWORTH EDITIONS

For twenty-five years we have been making great literature available at a price that all can afford. It all began back in 1992 when we created the £1 classic paperback and ever since then we have stuck to one simple principle: to produce the best quality books that we can at the lowest possible price.
 
    Our collection of around 270 classic titles for adults and children still only cost £2.50, and we think the quality of our current editions is the best they have ever been. So whether you are a student or a school on a limited budget or a just a lover of great literature, then you're in the right place. So go ahead and treat yourself to a masterpiece for less than the price of a cup of coffee.

    And our Classics are only part of the story. Our World Literature series encompasses major works of philosophy, and more, from around the world, our Poetry series covers all of the major British, Irish and American writers and our Mystery & Supernatural series offers chilling ghost stories and intriguing mysteries. Add to that our bumper Special Editions and our beautiful hardback Library Collection (which make a great present) and we can truly say that with our collection of well over 400 titles we offer something for everyone.

    So go ahead and have a look around - we hope you enjoy your visit.

About the book: 

Wilkie Collins is a master of mystery, and The Woman in White is his first excursion into the genre. When the hero, Walter Hartright, on a moonlit night in north London, encounters a solitary, terrified and beautiful woman dressed in white, he feels impelled to solve the mystery of her distress.
The intricate plot is peopled with a finely characterised cast, from the peevish invalid Mr Fairlie to the corpulent villain Count Fosco and the enigmatic woman herself.
