Book Buy Help/Advice Requested

my adult son has told me he would very much like a leatherbound english language version of The Count of Monte Cristo (his favorite book). i've checked amazon, ebay and etsy and, while i've found one available on amazon/barnes & noble, the reviews indicate the editing and proofreading work on this printed version is poor with grammar and typo errors. looking for recommendations on where i might find a well done copy - new or vintage (vintage actually preferable if in great condition). thanks in advance for any thoughts!

How much do you want to spend?

There's a leather-bound Easton Press edition on Alibris for $220: https://www.alibris.com/booksearch.detail?... It has illustrations by Lynd Ward, who of course is brilliant.

And there are a slew of leatherbound copies on Abebooks: https://tinyurl.com/yde9pcas

the way they're organized breaks down a lot of different imprints and they also have older/vintage copies. Note that I've never actually purchased anything from them, but they do seem to have a lot of variety in copies.
