For my birthday, I treated myself to buying all seven of Austen's novels in the Everyman's Library editions. They make at ruly lovely set. The cover paintings are attractive and appropriate, and the overall quality is excellent. My only caveat is for readers who may be daunted by Austen's language or who lack a background in the society of the period: these editions do not contain notes or a glossary. If I was reading the book for scholarly reasons, I'd probably opt for the Norton Critical Edition, which includes these as well as scholarly essays and context materials.
