BRONTE, Charlotte (author). Monro S. ORR (illustrator). Jane Eyre. London; George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd. 1927.
Large 8vo. Original crimson cloth panelled and lettered in gilt to spine and upper board, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [xii] + 473 + [i]; with 16 fine coloured plates by Monro S. Orr; externally near fine, and internally very good indeed, with only a little occasional light foxing, protected by an attractive example of the scarce dustwrapper, with some overall rubbing and dusting, chipping to head and corners, nicking to tail, and one angled, and closed (42mm) tear to heel with archival tissue repair to the reverse and small triangular loss; scarce.
Second edition illustrated thus; first issued with these plates in 1921. One of the best vintage illustrated editions of this perennial favourite.
