Originally published in 1813 to a small run (estimated about 1500 copies), Pride and Prejudice saw immediate success, resulting in a second edition issued the same year as the first. Since the initial publications, it has been widely regarded as one of the best novels of all time. Alongside Austen’s other popular novels, it set numerous precedents for modern romance. Through the courtship of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, Jane Austen masterfully portrays the romantic considerations and desires of her audience. This limited edition by the Easton Press pairs the text with illustrations by Helen Sewell. It is a spectacular rendition of the work, a crucial text for any collector of classic literature.

This limited edition is in fine condition. In the original red leather, finely gilt stamped. Raised bands. Gilt spine label. Text block fine. Silk moire endpapers and bookmark sewn in.
