All five volumes are in good condition. All lack dust jackets and are rubbed at the spine ends and corners, with lighter rubs to edges. Bound in quarter black cloth, with printed paper sides. The sides are a patterned paper by Curwen Press, designed by Sarah Nechamkin. They would have had dust jackets when published and may have been sold as a boxed set (there was a boxed set of the 6 Jane Austen titles produced but these are without a box). Emma is the missing volume from this set. Sense and Sensibility is a 1st Novel Library edition, of 1948, pp. viii, 374; Pride and Prejudice is a 1st Novel Library edition of 1949, pp. viii, 386, has a small pale stain to the outer closed textblock foredge; Northanger Abbey is a first Novel Library edition of 1948, pp. viii, 236; Persuasion is a reprint of 1951, first published in the Novel Library edition 1947, pp. vi, 254; Mansfield Park is a 1st Novel Library edition of 1949, pp. viii, 479, has a very small brown stain near the top edge of the front cover. No previous owner's names or inscriptions. The bindings are all firm and of a uniform size, 17.6cm. A HEAVY set - a postage surcharge will apply to delivery destinations outside the UK as this set costs more to send than our standard postage rate will cover. NO additional charges for sending within the UK.
