About this Item: George Allen, Ruskin House, London, 1894. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Hugh Thomson (illustrator). The iconic first Hugh Thomson illustrated edition of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. This copy bound wonderfully, with the important Peacock cloth binding bound-in at the rear. Bookplates whithin (loose, not glued down) of Mrs. Thomas Elliott Donnelley; Thomas E. Donnelley was the early 20th century President of R.R. Donnelley and Sons, a well-known publisher. Physical Attributes - Measures 18 x 12 x 4 cm. Full calf fine-binding. Five raised spine ribs; all spine compartments ruled in gilt, title and author in gilt in one spine compartment, and "London 1894" at bottom of spine. Boards ruled in double gilt, with a dentelle inner border. All edges ruled in gilt. Double stack endbands, alternating yellow and red. Turn-ins also ruled in gilt. Top-edge gilt. Publisher's cloth binding bound-in at the rear of the volume on blank endpapers. Pages - (2), xxviii, 476, colophon, leaf with cloth spine, leaf with front board cloth, (2). Condition - See pictures. Beautiful book. Leather is soft and subtle. I'll nitpick. Spine has slight discoloration and some tiny cracks in the compartments, with a rub on the top spine rib. Bottom edges have a little wear. Front joint has a little color loss along the joint. Front board has a 2 cm scrape at top edge, and a 1 cm scrape near bottom of fore-edge, both surface level only. Slight toning to un-gilded fore-edge and bottom-edge. Leather turn-ins have ghosted onto the facing endpapers (perhaps a leather conditioner that was used caused this). Miraculously, no bookseller notes on the blank unpaginated pages. The illustration index has several pencil "x" marks; I erased them but still faintly visible. I checked the illustrations with an "x", and they are present, so the writer must have been noting their favorites. Occasional very small dot (singular) on pages. Pencil binder note "26" on back of colophon (rear of text). Pages 107-115 have small yellow dot at top of fore-edge margin (no text touched). 700 grams. Seller Inventory # 228

Contemporary ownership inscription to half title and bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Spine slightly rolled with a small blemish and some rubbing to ends, extremities rubbed and slightly worn, inner front hinge starting, otherwise a very good and especially bright copy.

Thomson's "light touch and feeling for period manners provide a charming and accessible gloss to the author's work" (ODNB). The exquisite gilt peacock design on the front cover has led to this work being known as the "peacock edition", and it is one of the most striking examples of late-Victorian pictorial cloth.

Very rare vairent with much bigger boards (1cm higher) than the normal version more commonly seen. Page edges are un-evenly cut, different paper quality to the normal edition and Gilt to top edge.
