This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ... B. " Sense and Senribility," a novel, in three volumes, by the author of " Pride and Prejudice," the second edition. London. Printed for the author, by C.

I think [Mrs Knatchbull] will like my Elinor, but cannot build on anything else." She confided to her family that " Anne Steele never succeeded in catching the doctor."
