Gives you exactly what it advertises.

I really should have done more research before I ordered this book. As it turns out, I have read every single story in this anthology and, even worse, the stories have been edited down so that they are much shorter than originally written. If I had actually looked at the individual stories before I ordered I would have taken a pass on this. If you have never read any of these classics, then this book will be a great start for you. But be warned, none of these stories are new and none were written beyond around 1900.

Cover Artwork

The cover artwork is "Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash" by Giacomo Balla, 1912

Great value! Who did the cover art?

As always, Dover books are a great way to get a lot of story for your money. Any clue as to artist/title on the cover art? I've been looking for a print for ages.
