What Our Customers Say...

Description

Publishers' Original Binding

The Brontë sisters were all prominent literary figures: first publishing under their male pseudonyms, Currer, Ellis and Acton, they produced some of the most important works of nineteenth century fiction, including 'Jane Eyre' and 'Wuthering Heights', as well as poetry. Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) penned the novel 'Jane Eyre' as well as four other, including 'Emma', which was incomplete.

Ellen Nussey, a lifelong friend to Bronte, alleged herself to be the inspiration for the character 'Caroline', although some critics believe that Caroline was loosely based on her sister Anne Brontë. Contains a newspaper clipping stuck to the title page announcing the death of Ellen Nussey

In the publisher's original binding.

With publisher's advertisements to both pastedowns and four leaves included at the rear advertising other works by the sisters.

Condition

In a full cloth binding. Externally generally smart, some fading to the spine and boards and wear to extremities. A newspaper clipping has been pasted to the title page. Internally generally firmly bound, pages bright and clean.
