Jane Austen: Her Contemporaries and Herself, An Essay in Criticism.

SKU: 14258-1

M233. A loving early tribute to Austen that defends her contemporary female writers. Burney, Ferrier, Edgeworth and Radcliffe are rightly argued to be no less interesting because Austen outshines them all in contemporary estimation. Bound in green cloth with gilt lettering. Spine a little darkened with age. Bottom corners very slightly bumped. Pages rough cut except for the top which is gilt. Very clean copy. Longmans, Green and Co, London, NY, Bombay: 1899. Printed by Spottiswoode and Co, London. USED. $65.00
