EMMA, Austen, Jane
1 Austen, Jane EMMA
Oxford University Press 1998 019283357X / 9780192833570 Paperback Very Good 
Of all Jane Austen's heroines, Emma Woodhouse is the most flawed, the most infuriating, and, in the end, the most endearing. Pride and Prejudice's Liz zie Bennet has more wit and sparkle; Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey more imagination; and Sense and Sensibility's Elinor Dashwood certainly mo re sense--but Emma is lovable precisely because she is so imperfect. Austen only completed six novels in her lifetime, of which five feature young wom en whose chances for making a good marriage depend greatly on financial iss ues, and whose prospects if they fail are rather grim. Emma is the exceptio n: "Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to dis tress or vex her." One may be tempted to wonder what Austen could possibly find to say about so fortunate a character. The answer is, quite a lot.

Penguin Publishing Group 2003 0141439807 / 9780141439808 Paperback Very Good 
Taken from the poverty of her parents' home in Portsmouth, Fanny Price is b rought up with her rich cousins at Mansfield Park, acutely aware of her hum ble rank and with her cousin Edmund as her sole ally. During her uncle's ab sence in Antigua, the Crawford's arrive in the neighbourhood bringing with them the glamour of London life and a reckless taste for flirtation.

PERSUASION, Austen, Jane
6 Austen, Jane PERSUASION
Digireads.com 2005 1420925717 / 9781420925715 Paperback Near Fine 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: Anne Elliot, heroine of Austen's last novel, did something we can all relate to: Long ago, she let the love of her life get away. In this case, she had allowed herself to be persuaded by a trusted family friend that the young man she loved wasn't an adequate match, social stationwise, and that Anne could do better. The novel opens some seven years after Anne sent her beau packing, and she's still alone. But then the guy she never stopped loving comes back from the sea. As always, Austen's storytelling is so confident, you can't help but allow yourself to be taken on the enjoyable journey.

Yet she bore it with so much composure, she seemed scarcely to notice it. I could hardly keep my seat.'Spirited and impulsive, Marianne Dashwood is the complete opposite to her controlled and sensible sister, Elinor. When it comes to matters of the heart, Marianne is passionate and romantic and soon falls for the charming, but unreliable Mr Willoughby. Elinor, in contrast, copes stoically with the news that her love, Edward Ferrars is promised to another.It is through their shared experiences of love that both sisters come to learn that the key to a successful match comes from finding the perfect mixture of rationality and feeling.

14 Butler, Samuel EREWHON
Penguin Classics 1970 0140430571 / 9780140430578 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Setting out to make his fortune in a far-off country, a young traveller dis covers the remote and beautiful land of Erewhon and is given a home among i ts extraordinarily handsome citizens. But their visitor soon discovers that this seemingly ideal community has its faults--here crime is treated indul gently as a malady to be cured, while illness, poverty and misfortune are c ruelly punished, and all machines have been superstitiously destroyed after a bizarre prophecy. Can he survive in a world where morality is turned ups ide down? Inspired by Samuel Butler's years in colonial New Zealand and by his reading of Darwin's Origin of Species, Erewhon is a highly original, ir reverent and humorous satire on conventional virtues, religious hypocrisy a nd the unthinking acceptance of beliefs.

His Annotated Alice, first published in 1960, has over half a million copies in print around the worl d and is highly sought after by families and scholars alike -- for it was G ardner who first decoded the wordplay and the many mathematical riddles tha t lie embedded in Carroll's two classic stories: Alice's Adventures in Wond erland and Through the Looking Glass.Forty years after this groundbreaking publication, Norton is proud to publish the Definitive Edition of The Annot ated Alice, a work that combines the notes of Gardner's 1960 edition with h is 1990 update, More Annotated Alice, as well as additional new discoveries and updates drawn from Gardner's encyclopedic knowledge of the texts. Illu strated with John Tenniel's classic and beloved art -- along with many rece ntly discovered Tenniel pencil sketches -- The Annotated Alice will be Gard ner's most beautiful and enduring tribute to Carroll's masterpieces yet.
