When getting a gift for a bibliophile it is more about presentation. This post will be about Collections of Works, whether it be works by an author or collections with a theme.

4. Collection of Works

-The Adventure CollectionIncludes: Treasure Island, The Jungle Book, Gulliver's Travels, White Fang, The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood

-Jane Austen. You can really use any author, but Austen's book have been reprinted for decades in different editions that it may be nice to give someone their favorite author's completed works that match.

-Collection you make yourself for a certain theme. One could be about: 
  Funny, inspirational women: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Mindy Khaling, and others...

-William Shakespeare's Star Wars

-George Orwell. There are a couple of editions out there. I think it would be great to have his novels in the same one. They are not too expensive alone and it would be an aesthetically appealing collection. This could also work with Hemingway's novels as well. 

Animal FarmNineteen Eighty-FourDown and Out in Paris and London

-F.Scott Fitzgerald. Recently his books were reprinted in an amazing metallic edition that would be a great gift to anyone who is a fan.
