This series provides timeless classics "reborn" for today's readers. Featuring biographies of heroes from the past, these classic reprints maintain original textual information and black and white illustrations found in their original mid-1800s edition books. Each hard cover book is approx. 5.5 x 7.5 inches with tattered edges on antique white paper, which serves to solidify the aged look of these classic books.
