Boxed set of Jane Austen novels

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This very nice set of the six classic novels by Jane Austen would make the perfect present for any keen reader, being in excellent condition throughout.

Jane Austen (1775–1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. The plots explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Her works gently parody the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and form part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism, as exemplified by Mrs Gaskell. Jane Austen's use of biting irony, along with her realism and social commentary, have been of enduring importance to scholars and historians.

The books are contained in a cardboard slipcase decorated with the Collins logo in a diamond pattern. The slipcase shows signs of wear, being worn at all edges and frankly torn along one edge. The books are bound in red leatherette with an impressed thin line border to the front cover, and titles etc in gilt on the spine ('Emma' is slightly more silvery than the others). Page tops are gilt throughout, and each volume has a dark red silk page marker. Inside, the books appear unused, with firm bindings, and clean, bright pages throughout.
