1950 PRIDE AND PREJUDICE & SENSE AND SENSIBILITY Jane Austin Modern Library
This hardcover edition of Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility is two complete and unabridged novels in one volume from 1950. The book features a price-clipped dust jacket in a protective clear wrapper. When removed, the complete catalog of the publisher Modern Library is printed on the back side. The front hinge is cracked. However, the binding is sturdy. The book is printed in English, and the pages are top-stained red. There aren't any obvious signs of inscriptions, marginalization, or dog-eared pages.
Jane Austen's style set the stage for the movement of literary realism, which took off in the mid-19th century and included writers such as Leo Tolstoy, George Eliot and Charles Dickens. Austen, however, wasn't met without controversy. Austen's satirical, narrative voice throughout the novel, which points out flaws in the social system, was regarded with disapproval because she was a female author, a profession relatively closed to women when she published in 1813. If you are a collector of banned books, Jane Austen's classic works of literature are a perfect addition to your library.
