An Exceptional Austen

Jane Austen's works have stood the test of time so wonderfully that it is folly to review them. And as there is always a wide choice of publisher and price, in the end you probably choose by the cover illustration. But this little volume is different.
I already had the entire Austen collection published as Collectors Library, by Barnes and Noble, and hoped to find it again through Alibris, since B&N no longer publishes it. I was delighted with this copy, a gift for a young friend just becoming interested in Austen, particularly because of the Hugh Thomson illustrations. These sketches of that by-gone era bring the story to life.She was so happy with the beautiful little volume - gilt-edged pages, small size, its own ribbon bookmark!
