AUSTEN, Jane. Works. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1892-98. Twelve volumes. 12mo, contemporary three-quarter brown morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $8500.

Lovely limited edition, one of 250 sets of Jane Austen's beloved novels.

"Generations of readers have marveled at the modernity of her work… She is the mother of the English 19th-century novel as Scott is the father of it" (Kunitz & Haycraft, 23). Includes Austen's novels (Emma, Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice among them) and letters, as well as a memoir of the author by her nephew, J.E. Austen Leigh. Each volume with frontispiece etching.

A fine set.
