Book Description

NEW EDITION. Six Volumes (not numbered as a set). All first thus. 8vos, title-page vignette of Jane Austen’s house in Chawton to each volume, with versos showing both composition and original publication dates (with the publication date for Love and Friendship erroneously printed as ‘1932’). Original rose-pink cloth, spines lettered in gilt on turquoise panels. Top edges turquoise. Rubbed, extremities worn, a few bumped corners, joints fraying, starting or split and spine flapping (P&P; MP), as frequently seen in cloth bound copies. Top edge stains faded, almost completely to Emma. Gently toned, occasional faint spots to endpapers, POI to ffep of P&P, foxing to prelims of Emma, plus occasional marginal staining, incl. a circular stain to fore-edges, pp. 127-142. Else, clean and tidy, especially given the poor mid-century paper. P&P and Emma are additions. A robust mid-century set of Austen's works, unusual complete in the original bindings.
Dealer Notes
Pride and Prejudice features Richard Aldington’s essay, ‘An Introduction to the Works of Jane Austen,’ (pp. i-ix), a reprinting of his short 1948 Ampersand Press essay, with a number of small changes and corrections. This version was later reissued in Alister Kershaw’s 1970 Richard Aldington: Selected Critical Writings, 1928-60.
