This set includes Jane Austen's Novels of : Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, Emma and Sense and Sensibility. The condition of all books, being antiques are excellent, with the boards being well bound.Notably this collection has collected some age related wear on the outsides. In more detail: the cream parchment covered boards do have a slight yellowing tinge. Additionally they have picked up some marks around the edges - with slight browning. There is visible dust which I have attempted to remove to the best of my ability without damaging the books. The gold detailing on the spine and on the jade green title plates are in tact and remain in perfection. Despite some age wear this set looks very attractive on the vintage book shelf and the ageing adds to the vintage feel of the volumes. It should be noted that the book Sense and Sensibility also has the name Janet Rothstadt (1961) written on the front (image 6). The pages have tanned along the top edge and would have originally been tinted green. This set provides the opportunity for those who are looking for a vintage Austen Collection to add to their collection. This set in my opinion is a rare collectible. Each book: H 16cm X W 11cm. Weight for complete set is 1.6 kg.
I send will be sending from Australia to international if required, with tracking and protective packaging! I must MAKE CLEAR - that due to the scarcity of this. Feel free to contact me with questions about this collection and/or to discuss pricing.
