Austen, Jane

$700.00

Chawton Edition. Twelve volume set - it's all here - with all six novels plus two volumes of minor works and letters. Color illustrations by the Brock brothers. Edited by R Brimley Johnson with Intro by William Lyon Phelps, PhD. Brown cloth with paper labels to spine. Pages rough cut sides and bottom, smooth and gold gilt on the top. Tissue protectors on pages remain, binding is good, pages are clean and bright except for some very light browning or the beginnings of foxing occasionally found. Labels slightly browned with age, a few have some tears. The corners are bumped. The spines are slightly darkened with age and the cloth is worn at top and bottom and torn on some of the spines. On one book the cloth has a bit torn out of it at the bottom of the spine. This is really a great set, a great way to own one of these 1906 sets affordably because we have discounted it heavily due to the wear on some of the spines. This is Number 596 of 1250. Frank S. Holby. USED. $700.00
