Austen, Jane.

$20.00

With features written by Philip Wilkinson. Features include "Why read Pride and Prejudice?", a brief bio of Austen, a timeline of the novel, and a quite good glossary with some lovely color illustrations. There are brief definitions places as footnotes throughout - not overdone, and definitely helpful to first-time readers. Half-inch colorful artwork on each page results in a pattern on the side edge of the pages reminiscent of old marbled page edges. The covers are heavy vinyl and the book is printed on heavy paper. At 9" by 6" it's a little bigger than a trade paperback. Extended corners are a little bumped; otherwise the condition is like new. DK Illustrated Classics. 2008. USED. $20.00
