Quick Overview

With a sharp wit and keen eye, Jane Austen painted indelible, finely realized portraits of Georgian life, with its intricate rules of behavior, social divisions, and delightful diversions. No one bettered her in capturing the sometimes complicated mating dance that led to true love, and her compelling, intelligent heroines are unequalled in all literature--and have also translated wonderfully to film and television. At the same time, her piercing humor exposed the follies of the age and ripped apart characters vain, foolish, greedy, arrogant, and callous. Here are three of her best novels, all in one volume and beautifully illustrated with period Sense and Sensibility, a richly textured masterpiece about two sisters with wildly differing temperaments; Emma, with its endearing but deeply flawed protagonist; and the deliciously lighthearted Northanger Abbey. If you've read these before, re-experience the wonder anew; if not, prepare to be captivated with every page!

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside clean but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
