Book Condition: Fine
Austen, Jane. SENSE AND SENSIBILITY [and] PERSUASION. Philadelphia: Porter & Coates. [n. d. circa 1870-1890]. Frontispiece portrait entitled "Willoughby's Farewell." A FINE COPY of this lovely reprint, combining two of Jane Austen's classics, her first novel and her last. This volume was issued as part of the "Alta Edition" which was published by Porter & Coates during 1870-1890. On the front flyleaf, a closed tear has been repaired with binder's paste leaving a tiny splash of white residue, and a previous owner's neat signature can be found (dated 1902). The pages are very slightly browned. All and all, this is an exceptionally fine copy, perfect for a gift. The Alta Series had beautifully designed bindings rich with ornamentation and gilt (and graced with a built-in ribbon bookmark) but durability is often an issue; this volume is a lovely exception, having virtually no wear.
