JANE AUSTEN: THE NOVELS

With the 60 original British illustrations from 1898

Jane Austen's radiant heroines enchant us anew in six exquisite volumes crafted as flawlessly as her stories themselves.  These leather-bound editions of Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Emma, Mansfield Park, and Northanger Abbey feature the stunning watercolors of brothers C.E. and H.M. Brock from the historic first color-illustrated Austen set of 1898. Full-color plates of the original British illustrations with their respective titles handwritten underneath are throughout.

Each volume is bound in full red leather with delicate botanical borders, plus gilded page ends, silk moiré endpapers and satin ribbon marker. The spines feature an ornate, six-compartment design in 22kt gold with raised hubs and black title-labels. 

Printed and bound in the USA.

Notes on the Illustrations

By 1898, a new technique had emerged – lithography -- that allowed printing of illustrations in color. Brothers Charles and Henry Brock were asked by London publisher J.M. Dent to create a new set of illustrations for the six Jane Austen novels.

Dent’s novels with the Brocks' illustrations – the first time Jane Austen’s novels were to be illustrated in color -- appeared in 1898 with great success. These "pen and ink drawings tinted in watercolor" gave a more exact and detailed period representation than ever before.
