Very nice, rare copy of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Illustrated Alta Edition with preface by Currer Bell, December 1847. "Currer Bell" is the pen name used by Charlotte Bronte. All Bronte sisters assumed pseudonyms, not wishing to expose themselves to the prejudice or condensation then often displayed towards women writers by critics.
Published by Porter & Coates of Philadelphia which was in business from 1867 to 1895. Book and Binding are in very good condition. There is an inscription on the second page. First six or seven pages have a slight crease in them. Slight browning of pages as expected with an antique book.5 on page 373, does not affect print. There are a few tiny brown spots on 4 pages in the 300's. Overall in very nice condition for it's age and would be great edition to any collector's library. We do our best to list any damage or use.
