Pride and Prejudice. With Preface by Frank Swinnerton and Illustrations by Helen Sewell

Avon CT: The Heritage Press, no date. Hardcover. xvi, 411p., later printing but the funny Sewell illustrations remain well-reproduced, thank goodness; hardbound in 8.5x5.5 inch faux-marbled boards with cinnamon-brown cloth backstrip titled gilt, nice headbands, titlepage in two colors, enclosed in a well-fitted slipcase decorated with same marbled paper. The spine title is a little faint but not from wear (more likely slightly insufficient pressure in the bindery), a pretty copy in excellent condition: while the slipcase shows trivial wear the book itself shows none. Sound, square and tight, clean and unmarked, an as-new copy of an old book.
