Here is a wonderful set of 2 vintage classic Victorian romance books written by the Bronte sisters. This is a rare first edition set of the books Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte published by Random House in 1943 with the original slipcase. These books are a superb example of gothic and victorian romance novels.

The books were both illustrated with wood engravings by Fritz Eichenberg and the illustrations are just incredible. The type is set in double columns.

These books are in excellent condition. All pages are crisp and intact and there are no tears. The gilt lettering is very crisp and clear and the spines are tight. There is no writing or book plates. Some very slight wear on the corners as is usual with these books but the edges are in very good condition.

The slipcase is showing a bit of wear but it is not split at all and has done its job of protecting these books beautifully. It is difficult to find these books in such nice condition and with the original slipcase.

I have read that this book set has become very popular recently due to the Twilight movies and that it is getting more difficult to find the set in good condition and with the original slipcase.

This book set would make a wonderful gift for someone special especially for a Gothic romance or Victorian era fan.
