The book: Attractive and rare 19th-century edition of Pride and Prejudice -- an 1813 novel of manners by Jane Austen.

The author: Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique, and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favorable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Her use of social commentary, realism, and biting irony have earned her acclaim among critics and scholars.
