Burney, Fanny


Edited with Intro and Notes by Margaret Doody and Peter Sabor. Laugh-out-loud comedy, social satire, and some interesting views on patriarchy are all found in Burney's novel. Much admired in its day by writers as diverse as Edmund Burke and Mary Wollstonecraft, and of course Jane Austen, who might have borrowed the line "PRIDE and PREJUDICE" that appears toward the end of the book. This OUP edition contains lots of helpful notes and appendices. Remainder marks, bent cover. Paper. USED. $4.00
