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." ( )
