Just do a search for "Vexin Classics" to see just how disingenuous publishers can be to draw attention to books. It's pretty much open season on public domain books, which means everyone and their dog tries to trump each other with covers to try and draw in the readers, but these people took it to new lows by making use of paintings of nude women for the covers. These covers were not even tangential related to the subjects either. So you had a nude woman on the cover of Frankenstein, a nude woman on a horse on the cover of Pride and Prejudice, and even a nude woman on the over of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
What book turned out to be not what you expected at all judging by the cover/blurb?
