The Selected Works of Jane Austen 5 Volumes

The Selected Works of Jane Austen 5 Volumes

Full Leather Edition

If one English novelist were to be selected for purity of style, Jane Austen, the quiet recorder of love and manners among the lesser landed gentry, would be a popular choice.

One of the principal wonders of literature, she laid her victims bare with unerring intuition. Her pen was deliciously wicked – but wit was her weapon – astringency and, perhaps, gentle irony. And always her prose was pure delight.

These fine, beautiful, powder blue volumes have been created as a tribute to Jane Austen. Bound in real lambskin, these books are ornately embellished with 23ct gold on spines, covers, and all page edges.

All Miss Austen’s six classics:

Sense and Sensibility
Pride and Prejudice,
Mansfield Park
Emma
Northanger Abbey/Persuasion

These books were also all available in theLiterary Heritage collection in Navy Faux Leather, however, a few of the titles in this edition are very difficult to find nowadays.
