8vo, XIX, 367pp. Hardcover in a magnificent fine binding with red and gilt inlay embossed on a dark geen faux leather cloth with six bands on the the spine and gilt writing with an intact yellow satin page marker and all edges gilt with stunning gold textured endpapers, text is in pristine condition and overall condition is certainly fine. This is arguably her most loved novel and is a “novel of manners”. It is so well known and follows the character development of Elizabeth Bennet, the dynamic protagonist of the book who learns about the repercussions of hasty judgments and comes to appreciate the difference between superficial goodness and actual goodness. It has even become one of the most popular novels in English literature with over twenty million copies sold. This is the ultimate in beautiful fine bindings too and is in a more manageable size than the famous Peacock editions. A wonderful present for any Austen devotee or newcomer to her works.
