In the past two centuries, enthusiasm for Jane Austen has never wavered, and her books have generally received the royal treatment by publishers. Along with an overview of Austen's writing and publishing career—plus quotes from Jane's novels and leters—this splendid homage depicts the original editions of her classics, alongside the lavish Peacock Editions of the Victorian era. Other highlights among the 200 color illustrations include a dignified 1938 Pride and Prejudice with an engraved cover by Helen Binyon, a cheerfully modern 2011 Emma, and a laughable mass-market edition of Persuasion with a rather frothy cover worthy of a Regency Romance.
