The complete novels by Jane Austen( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jane Austen is perhaps the best-loved of all English novelists. Her knowledge of human nature is remarkable, and her awareness of the importance of class, money and appearances makes her a peculiarly modern author. She addresses the politics of dating, courtship and mating with an incisive intelligence that both foreshadows and outstrips romantic novels of today. Her teasing novels of gentle worldliness have been brought to new audiences by modern film and television productions, and this complete edition of her full-length novels will be a welcome addition to any library or collection of books. This edition contains the delightful illustrations of Hugh Thomson, the finest illustrator of Jane Austen's works." --Publisher's description
