SENSE AND SENSIBILITY

First edition with these illustrations. Deluxe issue. Publisher's full vellum, elaborated decorated and with titles in gilt to the upper board and spine. Top edge gilt, the others untrimmed, as issued. Red silk ribbon page marker perished. Illustrated with tissue guarded frontispiece, illustrated title page and a further 22 full page colour plates after watercolours by C. E. Brock. An excellent fine copy, the binding square and firm, the vellum remains clean and the gilt bright. The contents with a previous owner's inscription (dated 1908) to the blank reverse of the frontispiece, and spotting of the tissue guard and prelims are otherwise clean throughout. A very attractive example.

A beautifully illustrated edition of Jane Austen's first published novel, in its scarcest and most desirable deluxe binding. (Gilson E120).
