Subject: recommendations for hardcover Narnia?

I'm looking for a hardcover version of the Chronicles of Narnia, and I was hoping somebody might have a recommendation. Here's specifically what I'm trying to find:

-All 7 books (unabridged) in one volume

-All the Pauline Baynes illustrations

-no "movie covers" (i.e. pictures from any of the movies)

-no essays or other text - just the books themselves!

A lot of the editions I've seen on Amazon are "adult" editions that omit some or all of the illustrations, popular versions with movie covers, editions that include extra notes/essays, or just postings that have no details listed. So if anyone is personally familiar with a good hardcover edition, I'd love to hear your recommendation! And if you don't know of a single-volume edition that meets the above criteria, but know of a good box set w/all 7 books in hardcover, I'd be open to those recommendations too.

Thanks for your help! :-)
