Overview

This beautiful set provides the definitive text of Austen's six great comic masterpieces and her minor works (the latter include three high-spirited efforts written at about age fifteen; a charming fragment, The Watsons, which has been thought to be a sketch for Emma; and a tantalizing fragment, Sanditon, written in the last year of her life). All six volumes feature splendid early 19th-century illustrations as well as Chapman's detailed explanatory notes. Chapman has collated all the editions published in the author's lifetime and previously unpublished manuscripts, establishing an authoritative text that retains the punctuation, the spelling, and division into volumes of the originals. In addition, at the end of each work he supplies notes on textual matters and appendixes on such matters as the modes of address, or characters, or carriages and travel, as these seem warranted by the text. Additional changes have been incorporated by Mary Lascelles. Includes early 19th-century plates.

I received this book in the mail today and I am extremely disappointed! First of all, this book is not LARGE PRINT! The letters are small and the print is smudged -- very low quality printing! Another major point is that this is NOT a collection of Jane Austen novels. There is a portion where it looks like a photocopied "Sense and Sensibility". Do not waste your money on this book. I am returning this to Barnes and Noble. This should not have been sold here or at the very least a better description is needed! NOT A COLLECTION OF JANE AUSTEN NOVELS! I would have appreciated it if I found this out before I purchased this book.
