Ref. 106745   Edition. First Thus

Published By: The Masterpiece Library 1896 (London)

Penny Popular Novels No. 16 edited by W. T. Stead. In the original wrappers with advertisements at the end. Minor edge spotting and chipping. Upper corner a little worn. Otherwise very good condition. A rare and early abridged edition. The Penny Popular Novels series was built on W. T. Stead's technique of 'boiling down the great novels of the world so that they may fit into, say, sixty-four pages instead of six hundred', so that the books were more affordable and widely available. The first books in this series were published in 1896, making this Pride and Prejudice among those published in the first year. Collectable copy of a literary giant, and a scarcely-seen representation of its growing popularity at the time.
