Jane Austen's classic romantic novels are now available in a boxed set for all to enjoy! One of the greatest novelists of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Austen's works have been turned into motion pictures and translated into multiple languages. Today, her works transcend cultural boundaries, and have become a model for a new generation of romantic stories. This six-title boxed set includes "Pride & Prejudice, Emma, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Persuasion," and "Northanger Abbey."
About the Author
Though the domain of Jane Austen's novels was as circumscribed as her life, her caustic wit and keen observation made her the equal of the greatest novelists in any language. Born in 1775, she was educated mainly at home. At an early age she began writing sketches and satires of popular novels for her family's entertainment. As a clergyman's daughter from a well-connected family, she had an ample opportunity to study the habits of the middle class, the gentry, and the aristocracy. In 1803 she sold the first version of "Northanger Abby" to a London publisher, but the first of her novels to appear was "Sense and Sensibility," published at her own expense in 1811. It was followed by "Pride and Prejudice" (1813), "Mansfield Park" (1814), and "Emma" (1815). Though her many novels were published anonymously, she had many early and devoted readers. Austen's identity as an author was announced to the world posthumously by her brother Henry, who supervised the publication of "Northanger Abby" and "Persuasion" in 1818.
The best thing about this hardcover, unabridged version of Jane Austen's classic collection of literary masterpieces is that it is ILLUSTRATED too!
It was a nice surprise, as the ad didn't mention that part when I was considering buying it. And yet it is half the price of the next cheapest illustrated set on this website.
I like the gold edging on the pages, too.
The books are compact and really came in handy last time I was stuck at the airport. You can take them anywhere and go back in time!!! (I'm sure Eliza Bennet never had to carry her own luggage. Where's Darcy when you need him?!)
This is truly an excellent box set from the Collectors Library. As per usual the Collectors Library have beautifully bound their books and treated them how they should be treated. The Jane Austen Box Set combines six loved Jane Austen classics into one remarkably made box. This set is for those who want to get rid of their mangled paperback versions of their Jane Austen book and get a visually impressive set.
A fantastic and worthwhile product to buy! The books are so beautiful, they are small and light enough for you to read in bed and not get sore arms! They are all hard back, so that is always lovely. They also have gold leaving on the pages, which makes them just that little bit more posh! My mum loved recieving these as a birthday present, and after seeing them myself I am thinking of buying myself a set!!! Oh and they are all unabridged too!
Beautifully bound boxed set. They are a pleasure to hold in one's hand as one reads. Gold edged pages and cloth book marks add to the charm. If you treasure Jane Austen, this set does her, and your bookcase, justice. Do not hesitate as the price is not dissimilar to buying individual paperbacks. I would galdly purchase other books from this publisher in this format.
