THE NOVELS OF JANE AUSTEN (10 volume set, complete)

London: J. M. Dent, 1898. 1st Edition Thus. Hardcover. A remarkably well-preserved set of the Brimley-edited, Brock- illustrated Austen novels in decorated cloth. All books uniform in binding, format and condition. Small 8vo, light green cloth, stamped dark green pictorial and decorations with titles in gilt, gte, sides untrimmed, ribbon markers, decorated endpapers, full-page color plates w/ tissue gurads. All decorated title pages dated 1898, otherwise specific titles dated on verso title page as follows: Vol I and II Sense and Sensibility second edition October 1902; Vol III and IV third edition October 1900; Vol V and VI Mansfield Park; Vol VII and VIII Emma second edition October 1900; Vol IX Northanger Abby second edition October 1900; and, Vol X Persuasion second edition October 1900. Some trace foxing to endpapers, and the gilt on Pride & Prejudice sparkles a little less than on the rest. The books appear to be unread, preserving the almost dainty quality of this production. The Brock illustrations capture the mannerly refinement of Regency England, perfectly interpretative of Austen's world. A collectible set. Near Fine. Item #012480
