Great Writers (Marshall Cavendish)

Superb collection of 55 classic books (with accompanying magazine) that comprise “The Great Writers” series exclusively published by Marshall Cavendish from 1986 to 1988.

The books represent some of the greatest works of fiction ever written in the English language. Each book has a beautiful hard cover in colour faux leather with gold lettering on the front cover and spine as well as a lovely colour illustration on the front cover. This collection also includes an illustrated 24 page magazine covering the lives, works and inspirations of each writer as well as focusing on one key work in detail (normally the novel accompanying the magazine). The magazines are housed in 4 purpose binders to form a comprehensive reference library of celebrated authors.

 

We have many of these in good condition. For convenience, we present options for purchasing the books and magazines separately or combined.
