A fully illustrated version of Jane Austen's "Northanger Abbey", with 24 full-page watercolour illustrations by C.E.Brock.
"Northanger Abbey" is the story of the young and naive Catherine Morland and her venture into the complexities of adult social life. It takes a tongue-in-cheek view of a girl's ideas of romance and adventure formed by reading Gothic novels, and how, with a series of very entertaining episodes that result in anti-climaxes, Catherine realises that real life is different to fiction.
Illustrations are used, with thanks, from http://www.mollands.net

MR user "dynabook" sent me a list of errata and helpful suggestions for stylistic improvements (eg systematically replacing "the general" by "the General", when referring to General Tilney). Fixed the errata and made the suggested improvements. Uploaded v3.
