Austen, Jane - Northanger Abbey - ( Item 122387 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2016. First Thus. Fine Hardback. Sealed. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Introduced by Val McDermid. Illustrated by Jonathan Burton. The last of Austen's novels to be published, this is a tongue-in-cheek tale of the hazards of female friendship and undesirable suitors. Bound in metallic cloth, blocked with a design by the artist. Set in Baskerville with Trajan display. 232 pages. Frontispiece and 5 colour illustrations. Blocked slipcase. 9½" x 6¼". Crumbling castles shrouded in secrets, ghostly skeletons cloaked in black veils, and innocent maidens held in the gravest of danger: the clichéd tropes of gothic romance fill the mind of Catherine Morland, the young, naïve, but warm-hearted heroine of Jane Austen's parody of the popular fiction of her time. Venturing away from her country parsonage home to delight in her first season amongst fashionable society in Bath, Catherine must navigate the more prosaic hazards of female friendship and undesirable suitors to secure the affection of eligible Henry Tilney. But when Catherine is invited to Northanger Abbey, the Tilneys' ancient stately home, her love of sensational stories of murder and mystery fires her imagination, and threatens to destroy her future happiness.
