Sense and Sensibility (Bath Bicentenary Editions of Jane Austen)by Jane Austen
Synopses & Reviews
Bicentenary edition of a beloved classic complete with original color plates and new silhouettes by illustrator Niroot Puttapipat, capturing the spirit of Regency England
The first of Jane Austen's published novels, Sense and Sensibility was originally published in October 1811. Originally entitled after its two heroines, Elinor and Marianne, the novel tells the tale of sensible Elinor Dashwood, the older of the two sisters, who believes in privacy, propriety, and logic, and flighty Marianne, who follows her heart without so much as a second thought for the consequences. As much a comment on social etiquette as a story about love and belonging, the timeless favorite illuminates Jane Austen's world. Featuring Jane Austen's complete and unabridged text, this is the first of six specially produced editions of her novels published to coincide with the bicentenary of their first publication.
This is a reproduction of a book published before 1923. This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. that were either part of the original artifact, or were introduced by the scanning process. We believe this work is culturally important, and despite the imperfections, have elected to bring it back into print as part of our continuing commitment to the preservation of printed works worldwide. We appreciate your understanding of the imperfections in the preservation process, and hope you enjoy this valuable book.
