Deluxe new French edition

Post  Scorp on Mon Nov 28, 2011 11:04 pm

I found this article in the French newspaper L'Express which detailed a rather nice-sounding edition of Leroux's novel, but without specifying exactly which edition it was. Amongst other things, it says that the pages are gold-leaf on the sides and it has one of those built-in bookmark thingies.

Le Fantôme de l'Opéra, par Gaston Leroux
Par Marianne Payot (L'Express), publié le 24/11/2011

Le Fantôme de l'Opéra, une des grandes oeuvres de Gaston Leroux, réédité dans un format poche à l'allure luxueuse.
Eclairé par une postface signée Joseph Vebret, voici l'un des grands textes de Gaston Leroux, publié dans un premier temps (1909) en feuilleton dans le quotidien Le Gaulois. Mais ce n'est pas tant la réédition de ce classique du roman policier qui est à saluer que son format: de poche luxueux, relié avec jaquette, dorure sur trois côtés, marque-page... A noter, la publication concomitante, dans cette nouvelle collection vouée à rééditer les chefs-d'oeuvre de la littérature mondiale, d'Histoires extraordinaires (Edgar Allan Poe), du Rouge et le Noir (Stendhal) et de Jane Eyre (Charlotte Brontë).


After some sleuthing, I've ascertained that the newly-released edition they're talking about is this one:

Will probably place an order for it in the next few days. Smile

Interesting. You'll have to let us know if anything's different besides the more lavish presentation Smile

Nothing different, but it has a new small afterword. It's like a French version of the edition published a few years ago by Collector's Library in English, both in terms of size and the whole gold-edged thing.
