A delightful set of Jane Austen's novels, each volume with woodcut decorations by Joan Hassall. As well as the major novels, the shorter works volume includes Lady Susan, Love and Freindship, The Watsons, Sanditon, Catharine, The History of England, and the minor novels of Lesley Castle, Evelyn, Frederic and Elfrida, Jack and Alice, Edgar and Emma, Henry and Eliza, and The Three Sisters.
The book are in wonderful condition, they appear unread. The bindings are secure, the pages clean and the leather in very good order. The slipcase has some very minor wear in the form of a little bumping to the bottom corners and a few small shelf scuffs but is otherwise very good also. A lovely set.
