Jane Austen's English.

SKU: 14575

The Language Library. Edited by Eric Partridge and Simeon Potter. An excellent study of the derivation and deep meanings of the words Austen uses. Many would have been understood by sharp people in her time, but perhaps missed entirely by the Mr Collins types, even during the period when her books were written. Very Good condition with very good jacket. Andre Deutsch, London, 1970. Hb, Dj  USED. $75.00
