I am thrilled to turn up this 1903 version of Mansfield Park published by Macmillan and Co., London. It is an illustrated edition of the novel with 40 beautiful drawings by Hugh Thomson which have gone on to help generations of readers picture the novels (see photos). There is also an Introduction by Austin Dobson. In very good condition.

Inside the pages are superb, in fact the best for any copy of this edition that I have had so far to date. They are remarkably clean and bright. With some tanning and spotting only to the endpapers and then there are just a couple of marks to the pages in the entire rest of the book. The frontispiece illustration still has the original tissue guard in place, (the tissue has tanned with time). This copy has not been written in and there are no other markings of previous ownership.

Bound in the original publisher's period binding of deep red cloth covered boards. They have a blind stamped floral design incorporating an "M" for Macmillan. With just a couple of faint marks one on the front and the other on the back, and some rubbing along the very outside edges.

The MAIN CONDITION POINT to note with this copy is fading of the red cloth on the spine and slightly round onto the front board. The gilt titles remain bright.

A charming copy in a highly sought after early illustrated edition. Your antique copy of Mansfield Park will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon and sent well packaged with tracking and insurance. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 20 cm x W 15 cm, 429 pages, 0.61 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. With the exception of a small number of countries.

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the full protective packaging, please add a note to the order.
