WELCOME TO WORDSWORTH EDITIONS

For well over 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 and Collector's Editions (which make great presents) 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.

CLASSICS IN THE SPOTLIGHT

THE LOST WORLD by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

In this week's blog, David Stuart Davies looks at one of Doyle's most influential novels outside of his Holmes stories. Read it here

About the book: These lively, varied and thought-provoking science-fiction stories (from the era of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells) are linked by their imposing central character, the pugnaciously adventurous and outrageous Professor Challenger. The Lost World (forebear of Jurassic Park) vividly depicts a perilous region in which the explorers confront creatures from the prehistoric era. 'The Poison Belt' presents an eerie doomsday scenario, while ‘The Disintegration Machine’ satirically comments on scientific cynicism.

In ‘When the World Screamed’, the planet responds violently to an experimental incursion. The strangest item is 'The Land of Mist', which seeks to reconcile science with spiritualism. This memorable collection provides imaginative entertainment, entrancing escapism and bold provocation.
