2 classic books for the price of 1: Vintage Love is a limited edition gift pack which consists of beautifully designed separate volumes of Middlemarch by George Eliot and A.S. Byatt's highly acclaimed novel Possession.

Vintage Love is just one of ten Vintage Classic Twins to collect. Each twin consists of two books: a specially designed limited edition of one modern classic title and one established classic work. The books in each pair have been carefully selected to provide a thought-provoking combination.

Middlemarch: Dorothea is bright, beautiful and rebellious and has married the wrong man. Lydgate is the ambitious new doctor in town and has married the wrong woman. Both of them long to make a positive difference in the world. But their stories do not proceed as expected and both they, and the other inhabitants of Middlemarch, must struggle to reconcile themselves to their fates and find their places in the world.

Possession: Possession is an exhilarating novel of wit and romance, both a literary detective novel and a triumphant love story. It is the tale of a pair of young scholars investigating the lives of two Victorian poets.Following a trail of letters, journals and poems they uncover a web of passion, deceit and tragedy, and their quest becomes a battle against time.

Review:

" Middlemarch: Perhaps the greatest novel of them all... An enormous canvas and a vast and poignant range of character...a marvellous portrait of nineteenth-century provincial life" (Joanna Trollope)

" Middlemarch: Another great romantic story, in which the adorable intellectually pretentious heroine makes a disastrous marriage to a desiccated fossil before finding true love with a penniless somebody" (Jilly Cooper)

" Middlemarch: In Middlemarch her serious intelligence produced a novel that no one else could have been capable of - a picture of society as an organic, living, breathing synthesis - order and disorder, hope and hopelessness, pride and humility, charity and greed. If only she had seen fit to marry Dorothea to Lydgate" (Kate Atkinson)

" Possession: As always, Byatt wields beautiful prose, and the mix of prose and poetry gives the book a sensuality as mysterious as anything in the plot" (Elizabeth Kostova)

" Possession: Intelligent, ingenious and humane" ( Times Literary Supplement)
