Works of Jane Austen

£250.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Since the first appearance of her final completed novel, Jane Austen's works have appeared in many collected editions, and this must be one of the neatest and most user-friendly ever issued. Handsomely leather-bound, gilded, and printed on fine India paper, it would rejoice the heart of any Austen enthusiast. There are no illustrations apart from a colour frontispiece for each volume - the words being quite sufficient to paint pictures for the reader.

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 in the late 18th century. Her plots explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security, and the books critique the 'novels of sensibility' of the time , thus forming part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Her biting irony, realism and social commentary, have earned her acclaim among critics and scholars. Her novels have rarely been out of print, although they were published anonymously and thus brought her little fame during her lifetime.

Our set is in very nice condition, two volumes with full flexible maroon leather bindings, titled and decorated in gilt to the spines and front covers. The original slipcase is unfortunately missing. A very attractive thin India paper pocket-sized edition (three novels per volume), illustrated with a colour frontispiece (plus tissue guard) to both volumes. Red marbled endpapers. Spines sunned. One volume ("Sense & Sensibility", "Emma" & "Persuasion") is dated 1904, the other ("Pride & Prejudice,"Mansfield Park" & "Northanger Abbey") 1906. All page edges are gilt, and the silk page markers are both detached, but present. In the absence of the slipcase, the books have splayed slightly, but this is the only noticeable defect. A very attractive set of classic novels.
