Pride and Prejudice
Illustrated by Hugh Thomson
A special edition from Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning classics that make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. Featuring beautiful heritage wallpaper patterns from Jane Austen’s own home in Hampshire, these collectable paperback editions are a must for all Jane Austen fans.
Jane Austen’s best-loved novel is an unforgettable story about the inaccuracy of first impressions, the power of reason and, above all, the strange dynamics of human relationships and emotions. A tour de force of wit and sparkling dialogue, Pride and Prejudice shows how the headstrong Elizabeth Bennet and the aristocratic Mr Darcy must have their pride humbled and their prejudices dissolved before they can acknowledge their love for each other.
With original illustrations by the celebrated Hugh Thomson, this Macmillan Collector’s Library edition also features bonus material by Jane Austen expert Sophie Reynolds.
An unputdownable read that challenges perceptions, and subtly marks a line in feminist history and thought
