However, Thanks for the Children's classics... I'm interested in those too.
1) Folio Society
2) Easton Press
3) Franklin Library
4) Gryphon Editions
I hope this helped...didn't really offer you any new ideas though.
Horizon was the publishing house of American Heritage and they made a fine job of anything they did. You'll find a lot of classics in their catalog. Very reasonably priced, too.
There are many EP and HP editions that are essentially the same with regards to original illustration, translator etc. A used EP may run around $50 while its HP twin can be found for $10-$15.

Jordan.ethier - I was unaware of both Folio Society and Gryphon Editions. it appears that Folio has the exact type of publications I had in mind.
kdweber, I am trying to track down the Heritage Press LEC editions. Also very helpful.
Crypto-Willobie, Though I was aware of Everyman's library, thank you for the reminder.
I'm new from goodreads and this is my first interaction with the forums. What a helpful experience!
As for the Folio Society, I am glad you like them! They are wonderful books. However, as I am a starving student, I can not afford a membership (with all its perks) and to be the editions new from the site. I tend to search for F.S. editions in used book stores or, if I really want a volume and can't find it, I go to online sources such as:
www.abebooks.com (it's my preferred online sale site)
