Description:

5 volumes. With numerous illustrations in each volume. Those in SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, EMMA, MANSFIELD PARK and NORTHANGER ABBEY/PERSUASION created by Hugh Thomson with those in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by Charles E. Brock 8vo, publisher’s light terracotta cloth, lettered in gilt and intricately decorated with over-all designs in dark-brown on the spines and upper covers, a.e.g. An unusually bright and fine set, the cloth in very fresh condition, the internal leaves bright and clean. VERY SCARCE. A charming and delicately illustrated set of Austen’s classic novels. Originally, SENSE AND SENSIBILITY appeared in 1811, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE in 1813, MANSFIELD PARK in 1814, EMMA in 1815, and NORTHANGER ABBEY and PERSUASION posthumously in 1818. Here we find them all perfectly united in this attractive cloth set. "Recognition came to Miss Austen slowly. But she is now firmly established as an English classic.Miss Austen had always her panegyrists among the best intellects-such as Coleridge, Tennyson,Macaulay, Scott, Sydney Smith, Disraeli and Archbishop Whitely, the last of whom may be said to have been her discoverer. Macaulay, whose adoration of Miss Austen’s genius was almost idolatrous, considered MANSFIELD PARK her greatest feat; but many critics give the palm to EMMA. Disraeli read PRIDE AND PREJUDICE seventeen times. Scott’s testimony is often quoted: ‘That young lady had a talent for describing the involvements, feelings and characters of ordinary life which is to me the most wonderful I have ever met with. The big bow-wow I can do myself like any one going; but the exquisite touch which renders commonplace things and characters interesting from the truth of the description and the sentiment is denied to me.’" - EB.
