A prized collection in my library ( )
  maryfremma | Nov 8, 2008 |
My set, "The Oxford Illustrated Jane Austen," was edited through strict comparisons to early printings. Its punctuation, spelling, and typesetting lend it a certain quirkiness. The supplemental background material is interesting. In the case of "Northanger Abbey," there's an article examining passages from Ann Radcliffe's novels that most likely influenced Austen.

"Northanger Abbey" is wonderfully funny. The parodic tone is even more apparent with my having just read "The Mysteries of Udolpho." ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192547070, Hardcover)

"R.W. Chapman's fine new edition has, among its other merits, the advantage of waking the Jane Austenite up.... The novels continue to live their own wonderful internal life...freshened and enriched by contact with the life of facts. His illustrations are beyond all praise."--E.M. Forster, Abinger Harvest.

This beautiful set provides the definitive text of Austen's six great comic masterpieces and her minor works (the latter include three high-spirited efforts written at about age fifteen; a charming fragment, The Watsons, which has been thought to be a sketch for Emma; and a tantalizing fragment, Sanditon, written in the last year of her life). All six volumes feature splendid early 19th-century illustrations as well as Chapman's detailed explanatory notes. Chapman has collated all the editions published in the author's lifetime and previously unpublished manuscripts, establishing an authoritative text that retains the punctuation, the spelling, and division into volumes of the originals. In addition, at the end of each work he supplies notes on textual matters and appendixes on such matters as the modes of address, or characters, or carriages and travel, as these seem warranted by the text. Additional changes have been incorporated by Mary Lascelles.
