Publisher's Description

A tale of two sisters, Jane Austen's delightful comedy of manners centers on the novelist's favorite subjects: love and marriage. Elinor Dashwood takes a practical, rational attitude toward romance that contrasts sharply with the impulsive nature and idealistic views of her younger sister, Marianne. With keen observations and sparkling wit, Austen recounts the Dashwood sisters' struggles to balance passion with prudence. 
This portrait of life in a nineteenth-century English village depicts a world in which matters of the heart are complicated by issues of money, class, and public opinion—a world not too different from our own. Readers will treasure this keepsake edition of Austen's classic, which features more than sixty eloquent pen-and-ink drawings by a leading illustrator of the Victorian era, as well as the original Introduction by Joseph Jacobs.
