Notes

A very handsomely bound set of Austen's novels. It is apparently a reprint of the six volume Steventon edition of 1882, the last complete edition of Austen's works to be published by Bentley, and is rather scarce: both Keynes and Gilson make note of this reprint but report having "not seen this".
