Post Austen, Jane: Persuasion (Illustrated). v4. 4th Feb 2014

A fully illustrated version of Jane Austen's "Persuasion", with 24 full-page watercolour illustrations by C.E.Brock.

Plot summary from Amazon:

At twenty-seven, Anne Elliot is no longer young and has few romantic prospects. Eight years earlier, she had been persuaded by her friend Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval captain with neither fortune nor rank. What happens when they encounter each other again is movingly told in Jane Austen's last completed novel. Set in the fashionable societies of Lyme Regis and Bath, Persuasion is a brilliant satire of vanity and pretension, but, above all, it is a love story tinged with the heartache of missed opportunities.

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: 3 Mar 08

Recreated the book with improved layout and formatting. Uploaded v2.

EDIT: 10 Aug 08

Replaced the cover with a greatly improved one. Thanks to Paul Durrant for this.

EDIT: 4 Feb 14

Thoroughly proofed and corrected against the first edition text. Innumerable errors corrected, and several cases of missing text restored. I would now regard this as a finished work - please let me know if you find even the smallest problem. Uploaded v4.

Me and some others are trying to figure out how to use github for version control on ebook files. I hope its ok, I used this version as a comparison to the PG files, with attribution. See https://github.com/GITenberg/Persuasion_105 and https://github.com/Project-Gitenhub/Persuasion_105 Thanks for doing this, Harry!
