Mansfield Park

£150.00

Product description

Published 1885 by Richard Bentley & Son.

Originally published in 1814, Jane Austen's classic novel tells the story of Fanny Price, starting when her overburdened family sends her to live in the household of her wealthy aunt and uncle, through to her marriage.

Black boards, embossed with attractive patterning. Gilt text and patterning. Boards are somewhat battered along edges and spine but solid. Black dye on upper edge of pages is partially worn off. Inner pages decorated with publisher's mark. First few pages at front and back are heavily mottled but readable. Frontispiece is good, but nearly separated from spine (still attached at present). Bulk of pages are good bordering on very good. Ink inscription on blank page.

Overall this is a sturdy but well-used copy of a nice old edition. Pages are remarkably good, aside from the aforementioned mottled pages, especially given the age of the book. The average market price for a comparable edition in similar condition is upwards of £250.
