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 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

LITTLE WOMEN by Louisa May Alcott

In this week's blog, Stefania Ciocia starts to have a look at the film versions of this much-loved classic, and you can read it here

About the book: Little Women is one of the best-loved children's stories of all time, based on the author's own youthful experiences. It describes the family of the four March sisters living in a small New England community. Meg, the eldest, is pretty and wishes to be a lady; Jo, at fifteen is ungainly and unconventional with an ambition to be an author; Beth is a delicate child of thirteen with a taste for music and Amy is a blonde beauty of twelve. The story of their domestic adventures, their attempts to increase the family income, their friendship with the neighbouring Laurence family, and their later love affairs remains as fresh and beguiling as ever.
