Seven volumes. Octavo. Handsomely bound in contemporary half black calf over marbled paper. Five raised bands and gilt titles on two red labels, gilt decorative borders and rose motifs to the spines of each volume. Marbled text block edges and endpapers. Volumes 1 to 6 are illustrated with a frontispiece, engraved title page and three further plates after drawings by E. M. Wimperis. Volume 7 has six plates by various artists including a frontispiece portrait of Jane Austen. All volumes are in very good condition, the bindings square and firm, with the paper sections of the boards being a little rubbed to the board edges, and the spines slightly faded. Volume one has a small patch of paper scuffed to the rear pastedown, volume three has a very tiny scuff to the upper board, and volume five the same to the lower board. The contents are entirely complete, clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps.
A very attractive illustrated edition of the Brontė sisters' complete works, beautifully presented in uniform contemporary bindings.
