Jane Austen: An Illustrated Treasury by Rebecca Dickson. At first glance this seems like a coffee table book that is filled with illustrations. The book also features removable memorabilia, including handwritten letter, drafts, paintings, and more. It looks like a fluff piece, because it is so beautifully designed, but the author discusses all of Jane’s novels in context of the age and with images that take your breath away. I found the font in the body of the main text annoying to read, but that is a minor quibble. This is a great gift for a budding Janeite fan in your family.

I collect mainly books on Austen, and this illustrated treasury was a wonderful surprise! Not only was the information both informative and beautifully illustrated, it was primarily sorted by novel, and each section contained inserts, ranging from facsimile letters that Jane wrote to snippets of her poems, drawings by Cassandra and others, samples of her novel drafts, etc. These can be taken out of the inserts and "handled" (one could pretend they were reading a letter from her, so to speak). I was pleasantly surprised that everything was included and in superb shape, since I ordered a used edition. Kudos to amazon and the used book supplier! I highly recommend this book for any Austen enthusiast!

This book is BEAUTIFUL! High quality, perfect companian for any Jane Austen fan, a must! I particularly liked the many paintings in the novel that are from the Jane Austen era or portray many of her themes. There are several pull envelopes with copies of her actual letters, the portrait her sister Cassandra did of her, and an unlimited source of information of Jane Austens' life and stories. The pages are large and interactive, with many side notes that provide an engaging reading as well. This book is a lovely visual and reading companion to her works.

I was so pleased to be able to make my purchase for the same price as I had paid for this book. I wanted to give two copies as gifts and was unable to find them at the store where I had made my purchase some months ago. The price was right due to the acceptance of an Amazon Visa card promotion. A great find by going to your website.
