Austen, Jane; Reginald Brimley Johnson (editor); William Lyon Phelps (introduction)
The Novels and Letters of Jane Austen. Chawton Edition. Twelve Volumes
New York: Frank S. Holby, 1906. Hard Cover. Number 458 of 1250 copies. Each volume includes color illustrations. All of the volumes are in their original binding of brown cloth with paper title labels to spines. The title labels are browned, lightly foxed, and have minor wear. There is light wear to the edges and corners of the boards of each volume. Volume seven has been expertly restored with the only noticeable evidence being modern endpapers. The color plates are printed on a different paper stock than the text and unfortunately all of the plates have some foxing. The text pages and tissue guards facing the plates are also foxed. Aside from the plates and facing pages, the interiors remain bright and clean. A very nice printing of Austen’s works. LIT/081611 This set may require an extra shipping fee. Very Good.
