Notes

First Brock edition of Pride and Prejudice, first Thomson editions of all other novels. Presentation set with the publisher's embossed stamp to each title page. C. E. Brock (1870-1938) illustrated Pride and Prejudice, one of his earliest appearances as illustrator, producing forty pen-and-ink drawings in the style of Hugh Thomson's "black and white school". This was the first title by Jane Austen he illustrated but certainly not the last, as he soon gained the reputation of a "a specialist in delicate Regency-style period illustration and for over 30 years ... was regularly asked to illustrate the favourite literary adult classics of the 19th century" (Dalby, 58). Thomson illustrated the other five titles.
