Product Description

About the Author

Jane Austen, England's first major female novelist, wrote and set her novels during the Regency period, when George III was too mad, and his son the Prince, who admired Austen's novels, too young to rule the country. Her six novels are best loved for their irony and perfection of form.Jane Austen perfected the English novel of the previous century in much the same way that Henry James perfected the Victorian novel. She never married and died in 1817 at age 41. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I had not read the letters before. Very enjoyable, for the money, and makes me want to read a fuller edition of the letters (I seem to remember this may be only about two-thirds of those not destroyed?) Short notes are useful,explaining who people are who are referred to only by initials, for example. Letters give information on minutiae of everyday life: fashions, doctor's visits, manners.

Format: Paperback
I received the PAPERBACK as a Christmas gift today and I've not had a chance to read it yet, mainly because I do not own a magnifying glass. Or rather a microscope, the font size is so very ridiculously small one wonders if this was meant for actual people to read and not thumb-sized fairytale creatures. The font is also very thin so not only are the letters too small to easily make out they also look grey rather than black due to the thin-ness of the font, making reading a very great strain on the eyes. I wear glasses but not even a magnifying glass over them could make reading this book a comfortable experience.

And if this alone wasn't enough of a reason to be unhappy with a nice-sized book, if rather on the thin side, on good paper with a rather lovely cover *with decent sized fonts, it's not impossible to use it after all*, but!
All the page breaks and chapter breaks are all missing!!!! and in their stead there are paragraph breaks.

The text goes on and on with nothing but paragraph breaks, not one single empty line is added as extra - for example, most glaringly after the "Preface" starts off nicely at the top of the first (unnumbered, I might add) page, the what I presume is a chapter(??) or letter(?) heading:

"LETTERS OF JANE AUSTEN.
I.
STEVENTON, Thursday (January 16, 1796)."

finds itself ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SECOND PAGE. That above is the last line right there^ and what I presume is the letter itself starts at the top of the third page.

Would it have been so very difficult to move its heading to the third page? And to leave some extra space here and there so there was more than a single empty line between the end of a letter and the roman number of the next letter?

The type was so small I had difficulty in reading it. A version of these letters in much larger print would be much better.
