Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen, published by International Collectors Library. No print date.
"Pride And Prejudice, the greatest of her romantic novels, presents some of the most memorable characters in literature. There is the amiable Mr. Bennet, trying to retain his composure in a world inhabited by a gossipy wife and five unmarried daughters. Mrs. Bennet is a querulous mother determined to make good marriages for her daughters. And, of course, there are the five Bennet girls- Elizabeth, Jane, Mary Catherine, and Lydia -all young and desirable. Into their world comes Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley, rich and handsome bachelors. Soon, through Mrs. Bennet's manipulations, all the protagonists become pawns in an ironic chess game played with human emotions, conceits, and foibles. With warmth and sprightly gentle satire, Jane Austen reveals how false pride and hasty judgment, vanities and inhibitions, can trap people in antagonistic situations that are directly opposite to what they intend. Pride And Prejudice, with its surprising ending, is a monument to Jane Austen's marvelous talent."
