About This Item

London: Collins' Clear-Type Press – illustrated Pocket Classics: Condition Good pp276

Cover: has been well protected in cover, deep maroon with gold gilt lettering. Some book stamps on the inside cover – please see photo.

Binding: Good, although break to the cover hinge. Apart from this all pages intact and it feels comfortable to move through book.

Text: Appears clear in type (east on the eye) no discernible marks or notes.

Overall: Apart from the break on the hinge (which has more to do with how the first plate was bound in this edition) this is a good book to add to a collection, and does not take away from the utility of the book.

Synopsis

Sense and Sensibility is a novel by the English novelist Jane Austen. Published in 1811, it was Austen's first published novel, which she wrote under the pseudonym "A Lady". The story revolves around Elinor and Marianne, two daughters of Mr. Dashwood by his second wife. They have a younger sister, Margaret, and an older half-brother named John. When their father dies, the family estate passes to John, and the Dashwood women are left in reduced circumstances.

About Squeeze Gut Alley Rare Books

Hi welcome to Squeeze Gut Alley Rare Books, my name is Paul Crame. I find, clean-up and conserve; interesting, unique and sometimes even rare books! So that they can continue to give new pleasure for many more years to come. I work in an academic library full-time and run Squeeze Gut on the side as part collector, part hobbyist, part dealer... Yes, I am basically a full-time suffering obsessive bibliophile. FAQ: Squeeze Gut Alley? That's a strange name for a bookshop? Ans: I was inspired by one of the many fisherman alleys pictured to the right >> in my home town of Whitstable, Kent, UK. Squeeze Gut Alley (a particularly narrow passage) was once (apparently) used as an escape route from the local policeman. Until one day... the rather rotund village policeman decided to chase a very naughty boy down the alley, and got his very large Capital Gut stuck in the narrow passageway! The name stuck and so did his Gut.
