Post Austen, Jane: Pride and Prejudice (Illustrated). v6, 14 Jan 2013

A fully illustrated version of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice". This is the fully proofed first-edition text of the book, with 24 full page illustrations by C.E.Brock added.

Plot summary from Amazon:

Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of the world and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and upside down. Pride encounters prejudice, upward-mobility confronts social disdain, and quick-wittedness challenges sagacity, as misconceptions and hasty judgements lead to heartache and scandal, but eventually to true understanding, self-knowledge, and love. In this supremely satisfying story, Jane Austen balances comedy with seriousness, and witty observation with profound insight. If Elizabeth Bennet returns again and again to her letter from Mr Darcy, readers of the novel are drawn even more irresistibly by its captivating wisdom.

Illustrations are used, with thanks, from http://www.mollands.net and http://www.solitary-elegance.com. Both these web sites are great resources for all fans of Jane Austen!

Enjoy!

EDIT: 2 Mar 08

The tool originally used to create this book made a bit of a hash of all the paragraph breaks. Completely recreated the book (this time preserving the paragraphs as the author wrote them!) and generally improved the layout and formatting. Uploaded v2.

EDIT: 27 Mar 08

As a result of reading the book, spotted two typos and an uncentred scene change. Fixed, and uploaded v3.

EDIT: 10 Aug 08

Replaced the cover with a much improved one. Thanks to Paul Durrant for this. Uploaded v4.

EDIT: 25 Apr 09

Spent the last month thoroughly proofing the book against the first edition text. Dozens of genuine errors corrected, and literally thousands of changes (changes to pretty much every sentence in the book) made in punctuation to match the first edition's punctuation, which is very different to modern usage.

Note that this version of the book now uses Austen's original spellings, which may appear odd to modern readers: her random use of "ei" in words which we now spell "ie", such as "neices" instead of "nieces", "shew" instead of "show", "chuse" (sometimes, but not always) instead of "choose", "staid" instead of "stayed", and many more. The spelling is also internally inconsistent: "Philips" sometimes appears as "Phillips", for example, "de Bourgh" is randomly "De Bourgh". All this matches the original text.

Uploaded v5.

EDIT: 14 Jan 13

Another round of thorough proofing. Many more errors fixed, and also the formatting greatly improved. I would now regard this a a finished text; if you find even the smallest error, please let me know. Uploaded v6.

Thanks for all your hard work, Harry. It must have taken you hours.

But I think you put the Author in the Title field, and vice versa. I've just changed it on my copy with mobi2mobi.

Regards, Alex

Hi Alex,

I've double checked, and the metadata is quite definitely correct on both the Windows Mobi Reader, and on the CyBook. I have absolutely no idea why you saw it as wrong!

Has anyone else seen the author and title fields as swapped around?

Thanks to pdurrant's "kindlestrip" tool, I've uploaded a new, much small, file (2MB vs. 5.3MB). It's exactly the same book, so no change in the version number.
