"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife." So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's classic novel of manners and mores in early nineteenth century England. As the Bennets prepare their five grown daughters to enter into society, each shows personality traits that illuminate their future prospects as wives. Jane, the oldest, is the most demure and traditional, and Lydia, the youngest, the most headstrong and impulsive. Attention centers on haughty second-born Elizabeth, and her blossoming relationship with the dashing but aloof Fitzwilliam Darcy. Adversaries at first in the endless rounds of balls, parties, and social gatherings, they soon develop a grudging respect for one another that blossoms into romance when each comes to appreciate the tender feelings that course beneath the veneer of their propriety and reserve.
First published in 1813, Pride and Prejudice is one of the most popular tales of romance in the English language and a cornerstone of Jane Austen's reputation as one of the greatest novelists of all time. This exquisite collectible edition features an elegant bonded-leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, distinctive stained edging, and decorative marbled endpapers. It's the perfect gift for book-lovers and an artful addition to any home library.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the "ED" in the gold circle (on the front cover and spine) means? that would be awesome.:)  Just bought this book, LOVE Pride and Prejudice. Love Love Love. This book is absolutely BEAUTIFUL.  The edges of the pages are a pretty light green color, and the inside of the front and back covers have an Amazing feathery/peacock-ish design. And there is a yellow ribbon bookmarker. SO lovely.  A story this special deserves a beautiful cover like this:)

I am thrilled that B&N is now creating single titles in their leatherbound classis series. I tend to disagree with the review posted; I don't see, logically, how a single title could be as large as the other leatherbound classic books B&N has been putting out. Those are collections of several novels and this is just ONE novel. Unless you are expecting large print or something, it just doesn't make sense, the book is going to be a fraction of the size. The images of these books show lovely printed covers and does not show or say they have gold edging. They are, as listed, single works to be enjoyed, that look lovely on my shelf right next to the collected works of Poe, Austen, Shakespeare and the Narnia series.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife” —such is the philosophy of Mrs. Bennett, mother to five daughters, including the opinionated, fond-of-walking Elizabeth Bennett, Lizzie to her sisters. When a wealthy, attractive young man by the name of Mr. Bingley comes to stay at the most elegant home in town along with his sisters and his best friend, the even wealthier but far more shy and aloof Mr. Darcy, all the available women in town seek his acquaintance in the hopes of a fine marriage. His attentions seem to be entirely consumed by the town beauty and Lizzie’s elder sister, Jane. But Jane is shy with her affection, and it might therefore go unseen. Darcy meanwhile appears judgmental and superior, though financially he is of the highest upper class society, and before long, most have come to despise his character, especially Lizzie. However, her attentions will soon focused elsewhere: on a socially awkward cousin set to inherit the Bennett house, and desirous of marrying one of the daughters, though none can tolerate his odd character. And with the militia in town, a young, attractive man by the name of Mr. Wickham will charm Lizzie and the entire Bennett household, though none could have guessed the dark secret he hides. With an exhaustingly dramatic mother and two younger sisters, Lizzie will find her life filled with much drama, and though she considers herself a wise judge of character, many of them will prove to her how she can often allow her own pride to get in the way of seeing truths right before her. Pride and Prejudice is a classic novel about class, wealth, romance, and pride, and how sometimes even our own intuition misjudges the charming as good-hearted, and the haughty as purely selfish.

I love this story, but I do not like the condition my book is in. The whole point of ordering off line was so I would get a nice clean copy. I thought this book would be wrapped in plastic, but it seems I got one of the dirty copies off the selves in the store; which is what I was trying to avoid.

My five star review is for this edition, and this series of books, the Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions Series. I love them. But the reason I am writing this review is in response to an anonymous review which complains about "&c" on page 8. This is not a typo, but rather an acceptable abbreviation for "et cetera."

I ordered this book because I wanted a nice copy of one of my favorite classics. I guess for $10 the quality really wasn't that bad. The pages were an unpleasant pea green though. Really wasn't feeling it so I returned it- I'll keep looking for something better.
