Pride and Prejudice.London, George Allen, 1894 Stock Code: 141099
NotesFirst fully illustrated edition. This was the first edition to feature illustrations accompanying the text, as Bentley's 1833 edition and subsequent printings had featured only a frontispiece. Thomson's "light touch and feeling for period manners provide a charming and accessible gloss to the author's work" (ODNB).
Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in greenish-blue morocco, centre tool to spine gilt, raised bands, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, blue fan decorative endpapers, top edge gilt.
With numerous black and white illustrations throughout.
Some minor spotting to a few leaves, small neat paper repair to bottom of frontispiece, an excellent copy in a fine binding.
