The Novels: Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey
London and New York: J M Dent & Co, E P Dutton & Co, 1907 A very good complete 6 volume set of Jane Austen's works illustrated by Charles E Brock, issued as part of Dent's Series of English Idylls. Each volume has 24 colour illustrations by Brock (including frontispiece and decorative title page). Comprising: Persuasion, 1909, 216 pp; Pride and Prejudice, 1907, 336pp; Mansfield Park, 1908, 396pp; Sense and Sensibility, 1908, 308pp; Emma, 1909, 395pp; Northanger Abbey, 1907, 206pp. Dent published an earlier edition with illustrations by H M and C E Brock in 1898 - this later set has a much expanded collection of plates by C E Brock. In the original half leather binding with marbled boards and top page edges with gilt. The bindings have been expertly repaired to provide new leather spines with raised bands, gilt compartments, author name in gilt and gilt title labels. The original marbled endpapers have been retained and match the boards. All the bindings are therefore sound and tight and in very good condition. They have some wear to the original leather corners. The contents are all very clean with bright clean plates and only the very occasional light mark or spot. The paper has light brown toning to the outer page edges. Pride and Prejudice has a minute repaired paper tear to the bottom margin of the plate facing p96 and Mansfield Park has similar to the top gutter of the plate facing p23. A few pages (mainly Emma - 23, 25 and 373) have had the top page corner turned over at some point. Northanger Abbey has a small ink inscription to a preliminary '18 Chapel Cry'. A very handsome set. Please enquire if you would like to see additional images.
