8vo, 382pp. Hardcover in pale orange patterned boards with grey binding and sunbleaching to the otherwise sound spine with faded gilt lettering to the spine in a grey board slipcase in excellent condition, text and illustrations are also in an excellent state with upper edge coloured light red and with chocolate brown endpapers with white illustrations of Jane and her house at the time Chawton Cottage. An excellent copy overall that would be near-fine if not for the faded spine and is one of seven early Folio Editions in their own slipcases all published circa 1960. Wood engravings by Joan Hassall enhance the appearance as well.
