Offering an outstanding estate discovery. Four books with six novels contained inside: Emma, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Pride & Prejudice, Persuation, and Northanger Abbey. The books have decorated leather spines, marbelized covers, marbelized edges to all sides of the papers, and marbelized end papers. Full page illustrations with tissue across from each title page.

Each book is signed as a gift to a Ridgely family member inside the front cover and dated 1886. Three of the books are structurally tight. The front cover to Sense & Sensibility has come mostly loose and will require repair. Wear to the corners, edges, and spines. Leather on the spines has light cracking occuring. Light surface wear to the cover marbelized paper, including a small missing piece on one book. Surface wear to the blue leather in spots, some light discoloration. Smells fresh. No evidence of widespread foxing-just a few pale spots on on the front interior blank page. Overall a tight set that displays well.

Each book measures 5 1/4 inches x 7 5/8 inches x 1 1/2 inches.
