Bicentenary edition of a beloved classic complete with
original color plates and new silhouettes by illustrator
Niroot Puttapipat, capturing the spirit of Regency England
The first of Jane Austen''s published novels, Sense and
Sensibility was originally published in October 1811.
Originally entitled after its two heroines, Elinor and Marianne,
the novel tells the tale of sensible Elinor Dashwood, the older of
the two sisters, who believes in privacy, propriety, and logic, and
flighty Marianne, who follows her heart without so much as a second
thought for the consequences. As much a comment on social etiquette
as a story about love and belonging, the timeless favorite
illuminates Jane Austen''s world. Featuring Jane Austen''s complete
and unabridged text, this is the first of six specially produced
editions of her novels published to coincide with the
bicentenary of their first publication.
