Bicentennial Book: The collected Jane Austen, in a fine edition.

Jane Austen, Seven Novels (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions, 2007, 10th printing, ISBN 978-1-4351-0319-1. Hardcover, 9.48(w) x 6.18(h) x 2.30(d).

Inscribed at the bottom of the title page in gold ink, “To my beautiful wife, my wonderful friend. I wish should many joyful hours with this book!” Christmas 2011, Your T.” 1232 pp., very good condition. Not an investment-grade collectible, just a fine edition of an author whose insight and style remains vibrant and alive two hundred years after she died this day in 1817.
