"SOME OF THE GREATEST NOVELS IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE": LIFE AND WORKS OF THE SISTERS BRONTË

BRONTE, Charlotte, Emily and Anne. Life and Works of the Sisters Brontë. London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1899-1900. Seven volumes. Octavo, modern three-quarter red morocco gilt, raised bands, patterned boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut and partly unopened.

"Haworth Edition" of the Brontë sisters' admired novels, illustrated with frontispiece portraits and numerous photographic plates throughout, handsomely bound.

"They had neither wealth nor power… what they did have was the vicarious experience of books and an irrepressible creativity… More than anything else, however, they had each other… Without this intense family relationship, some of the greatest novels in the English language would never have been written" (Barker, 830). Includes Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, Shirley, Villette, and The Professor; Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights; and Anne Brontë's Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Agnes Grey. With prefaces by Mrs. Humphry Ward. Also includes Elizabeth C. Gaskell's noted biography of Charlotte Brontë.
