Five Children and It (Psammead, book 1) by Edith Nesbit
The text is brilliant, as always with Edith Nisbet. The reason for the three-star rating is its production values as a physical book. Right down to the ragged-right monospaced type and the bracketed text in place of the missing illustrations. Among the publisher's few additions was to automatically paginate the text: The clearly numbered pages in a book with a table of illustrations referring to page numbers over -- but no illustrations to be found -- was collectively my first clue to what I was actually looking at.
Sadly, even this appears to have been done by someone with no prior experience in desktop publishing: the last page of each story is centered vertically on the page, with results such as page a line and a half of text in the middle of an otherwise blank page, and a page number centered at the bottom. None of which is terrible, but you should know what you're getting. With access to a good duplex laser printer and a local copy shop that does binding, you can print the Gutenberg text and have it perfect-bound yourself for roughly the same price.
With perhaps an extra hour of effort, your version could also have the illustrations. This book is a collection of short stories, and finding it again has been a highly emotional experience for me. Oh my! How I adored reading those old fine magical stories again!
Kids Century – Part I
This last has a very catchy verse in it "Out! Into the night! Ah, me!!! These stories are all "Classic Nesbit", and even if the book is "brand new" to you and not nostalgic as it is for me, it is still well worth the getting, and at a VERY reasonable price! One final note of historic literary interest: the story "The Aunt and Amabel" -- with its train station tucked away inside a wardrobe in a spare room -- was C. Edith Nesbit! The 4 star rating is due to the confusing text in the first few stories where the copying included the text phrases from under the illustrations not included in this edition.
