I need this to be clear to other buyers. This is not a Barnes and Noble Leatherbound Classic. This is part of the CC lineup and will not match the dimensions of the other books in the BN collection. It is leather and it is a classic series of HG Wells books, just not part of the BN LBC lineup. Same with the Verne novel as well. I was a bit surprised when i received mine. Other than that, it is fantastic.

This is an anthology using Wells's weaker and some unpublished stories. It doesn't reflect his greatness. One wonderss if the word "strange" of the title means the stories themselves or the fact that H. G. probably wouldn't have wanted some of them published at all. Most pleasurable were "The Argonauts of the Air," "In the Abyss," "The Rajah's Treasure," "tHE sTORY OF dAVIDSON'S eYES," "tHE sEA rAIDERS," AND "The Treasure in the Forest."
