Perhaps no English literary family is as important as the Brontes. Anne Bronte was the youngest sister of the three. She published under the pen name Action Bell. Charlotte Bronte was the eldest–she is most often remembered for her classic novel Jane Eyre. Emily Bronte is the middle sister whose greatest work is without question Wuthering Heights. A Gothic novel concerning the dramas of two gentry families, the Earnshaws and the Lintons, Wuthering Heights is dark, brooding, romantic, and supernatural. Scholars and readers continually place it among the best novels ever written. In fact, this edition is part of Easton Press’s 100 Greatest Books Ever Written series. It contains lithographs by Barnett Freedman which pair well with the text.

This collector’s edition is in fine condition. In the original blue leather boards, fine. Elaborately gilt stamped. Raised bands. Text block fine. Gilt edges. Silk moire endpapers and bookmark sewn in. Freedman’s lithographs superb.

A fine collector’s copy of Wuthering Heights.
