Condition: Near Fine/N


Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1923 A near fine set of the 1st Oxford edition of Jane Austen's Novels, in the large paper version - limited to 1,000 sets of which 950 were for sale. The set consists of 5 volumes (Northanger Abbey and Persuasion are in one volume) with detailed notes, additional information and numerous illustrations. This set has been recently rebound by Elizabeth Howard - with pale blue calf spines (with title labels) and corners and matching marbled boards. New endpapers. Page edges to side and base untrimmed. Each volume has a colour frontispiece: in the case of Mansfield Park, this has an additional flap to give 2 different views of the same scene; and in Vol V there is a colour frontispiece for both books. All other illustrations are present as called for. Sense and Sensibility 429pp; Pride and Prejudice 415pp; Mansfield Park 567pp; Emma 521pp; Northanger Abbey 252pp; Persuasion 263pp. There is the very occasional spot, for example on the verso of the street plan of Bath at the end of Vol V, but otherwise contents very clean. A lovely set.
