The Works: Comprising Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, and Minor Works. The Text based on Collation of the Early Editions by R.W. Chapman. With Notes, Indexes and Illustrations from Contemporary Sources - Jane Austen

1946 - At the Clarendon Press, Oxford - Third Edition Thus, later impressions
'I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.'

This finely bound five volume Oxford edition, illustrated throughout, contains all of Austen's famous novels, as well as extensive introductions, appendixes and addenda, including 'Miss Austen's English', 'Modes of Address', 'Carriages and Travel', 'The Topography of Bath', a biographical note on the author, and 'The Mysteries of Udolpho'.

Affectation of candour is common enough—one meets with it everywhere. But to be candid without ostentation or design—to take the good of everybody's character and make it still better, and say nothing of the bad—belongs to you alone.’
