Overview

Pride and Prejudice (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions) by Jane Austen

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife." So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's classic novel of manners and mores in early-nineteenth-century England. As the Bennets prepare their five grown daughters to enter into society, each shows personality traits that illuminate their future prospects as wives. Jane, the oldest, is the most demure and traditional, and Lydia, the youngest, the most headstrong and impulsive. Attention centers on haughty second-born Elizabeth, and her blossoming relationship with the dashing but aloof Fitzwilliam Darcy. Adversaries at first in the endless rounds of balls, parties, and social gatherings, they soon develop a grudging respect for one another that blossoms into romance when each comes to appreciate the tender feelings that course beneath the veneer of their propriety and reserve.
 
First published in 1813, Pride and Prejudice is one of the most popular novels in English literature and a cornerstone of Jane Austen's reputation as one of the greatest novelists of all time. This volume is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in an exquisitely designed foil-stamped binding, with distinctive colored edging and an attractive ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensable cornerstone for any home library.

Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics Pride and Prejudice (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics Series) 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 30 reviews.

I am thrilled that B&N is now creating single titles in their leatherbound classis series. I tend to disagree with the review posted; I don't see, logically, how a single title could be as large as the other leatherbound classic books B&N has been putting out. Those are collections of several novels and this is just ONE novel. Unless you are expecting large print or something, it just doesn't make sense, the book is going to be a fraction of the size. The images of these books show lovely printed covers and does not show or say they have gold edging. They are, as listed, single works to be enjoyed, that look lovely on my shelf right next to the collected works of Poe, Austen, Shakespeare and the Narnia series.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the "ED" in the gold circle (on the front cover and spine) means? that would be awesome.:)  Just bought this book, LOVE Pride and Prejudice. Love Love Love. This book is absolutely BEAUTIFUL.  The edges of the pages are a pretty light green color, and the inside of the front and back covers have an Amazing feathery/peacock-ish design. And there is a yellow ribbon bookmarker. SO lovely.  A story this special deserves a beautiful cover like this:)

I love this story, but I do not like the condition my book is in. The whole point of ordering off line was so I would get a nice clean copy. I thought this book would be wrapped in plastic, but it seems I got one of the dirty copies off the selves in the store; which is what I was trying to avoid.

My five star review is for this edition, and this series of books, the Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions Series. I love them. But the reason I am writing this review is in response to an anonymous review which complains about "&c" on page 8. This is not a typo, but rather an acceptable abbreviation for "et cetera."

I ordered this book because I wanted a nice copy of one of my favorite classics. I guess for $10 the quality really wasn't that bad. The pages were an unpleasant pea green though. Really wasn't feeling it so I returned it- I'll keep looking for something better.

This book is my favorite and I love the leatherbound version! it's beautiful and fit's well with my other classics. You either love classic novels, or you dont. I do, and I was definetely born in the wrong time period. this book made me laugh, cry, and relate to all the characters. Jane Austen was brilliant!
