The world’s largest collection of Penguin Classics is not in the publisher’s warehouse, but in Steve Hare’s house. The man has collected the series for over 45 years, according to Metro Mail in the UK. The bookworm has more than 15,000 titles on his shelves, some wrapped in plastic bags. Looking at his Penguin collection, I’m afraid that I have a long way to go. Apart from taking in consideration of the translation, I almost always prefer Penguins edition of classics. For the sake of uniformity, I would acquire a Penguin edition in addition to the desired translation.
Do you prefer/collect a specific series?
