AUSTEN, Jane (author). Hugh THOMSON (illustrator). [The Works.] Pride And Prejudice; Sense And Sensibility; Emma; Mansfield Park; Northanger Abbey And Persuasion. London: Macmillan And Co. Limited, 1901-1902.
8vo.; 5 volumes; publisher's terracotta cloth prettily blocked to spines and upper boards with an Art Nouveau design in darker red, lettered in gilt, all edges gilt; with full-page illustrations after engravings throughout by Hugh Thomson (Sense and Sensibility; Emma; Mansfield Park; Northanger Abbey and Persuasion) and Charles Brock (Pride and Prejudice); a delightful set with bruising and mild abrasion to spine ends; light surface wear to tails; a touch of blistering to one lower board; and a small and insignificant splash mark to another; internally uncommonly clean and sound with one old faded inscription, dated 1905; offset browning to endleaves, and minor toning to stock.
Vintage editions thus presented in uniform decorative bindings and including, in our experience, the best-loved illustrations for these works.
