A beautiful hardback for the price of a paperback. White's Pocket Classics offer the best-loved classics in an irresistible small hardback with original illustrations embossed on the covers and all the features of a fine edition -- coloured endpapers, marker ribbon, illustrated title pages and new typesetting -- combining the best contemporary design with the luxury of a hardback and introductions by today's popular authors, to make the most appealing classics available at a paperback price and a perfect gift. For some readers Pride and Prejudice is a delightful comic novel, for others it is a social critique, but certainly no other English novel is as popular, and a recent World Book Day survey voted it readers' most precious book of all.

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817) was a major English novelist, whose brilliantly witty, elegantly structured satirical fiction marks the transition in English literature from 18th century neo-classicism to 19th century romanticism. Born in the village of Steventon, near Basingstoke, in Hampshire. The seventh of eight children, she was the daughter of a clergyman and part of a close-knit family. In 1801 the family moved to Bath until the death of her father. Then, after a period of impermanent homes, in July 1809 the Austen ladies moved to Chawton Cottage, Hampshire, where Jane was to complete most of her major works before her early death.
