Jane Austen's most modern and controversial novel, Mansfield Park, illustrated by the award-winning Darya Shnykina and introduced by Lucy Worsely, completes Folio's sensational Austen series. Bound in metallic buckram blocked with a design by the artist. Set in Baskerville. 432 pages. Frontispiece and 7 colour illustrations. Blocked slipcase. 9½" x 6¼". At just ten years old, Fanny Price is sent from her poor Portsmouth home to live with the family of her wealthy uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram, in the vast grandeur of Mansfield Park. Timid and fragile, Fanny is neglected by the indolent Lady Bertram, belittled by her conceited cousins Maria and Julia, and constantly reminded of her lowly status by her ever-critical Aunt Norris. Her only comfort is the kindness and attention shown by her cousin Edmund, and her sole strength the sense of her own moral integrity. But this strength is tested when the alluring and sophisticated Henry and Mary Crawford arrive, and Fanny must watch her cousins – even her beloved Edmund – succumb to their seductive charms.
