The finest illustrations ever done to Austen's work, and first published in 1894. This unique and lovely volume features illustrations depicting scenes from Jane Austen's masterwork, accompanied by excerpts from the beloved novel. Victorian artist Hugh Thomson's (1860-1920) drawings, delicately coloured for this special edition, have long been considered the perfect complement to Austen's witty and elegant prose. So perfectly matched were the style and sensibility of Thomson's illustrations to Austen's elegant comedy of manners that he remains today the foremost illustrator of her works. A marvellous gift edition to be treasured by any Austen fan or lover of fine book illustration.
