Pride and Prejudice

£150.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Jane Austen's classic title needs no introduction, but this is a particularly nice little edition, which has clearly been much enjoyed by its owners.

It is bound in dark red pebbled morocco with blind tooled rules, gilt lettering and design on the spine, and dark purple endpapers. The page tops are gilded. The top and bottom of the spine are quite badly worn away. The original owner's name is pencilled on the back of the frontispiece, with the date '1919', and a later owner has inscribed her name in biro in 1969. The binding is generally firm, but shows weakness at pp 160-61. The text is generally clean, but somewhat varied in density; there are some small marks here and there. There is no foxing, but a faint brownish stain visible on the page edges up to p. 160, where it also bleeds slightly into the margin. The text is accompanied by 6 illustrations and a frontispiece (by Lex de Renault), and a title page lavishly decorated with cherubs and a picture of a gentleman seated, reading.
