Lady Susan

Jane Austen, Coralie Bickford-Smith

Introducing Little Clothbound Classics: irresistible, mini editions of short stories, novellas and essays from the world's greatest writers, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith

Recently widowed, the unscrupulous and beautiful Lady Susan Vernon is determined to scheme her way through high society in the hope of a profitable new match - all while trying to marry off her unfortunate daughter. Ambitious and manipulative, Lady Susan is unlike any Jane Austen heroine you’ve read about before. Told through a series of letters, Jane Austen's magnificent first novella is as subversive as it is charming.



A sparkling comedy of love, matchmaking, and marriage.

Lady Susan

Mansfield Park

Northanger Abbey

Jane Austen’s brilliant satire of the gothic novel.

The Complete Clothbound Classics Box Set

Jane Austen, Coralie Bickford-Smith

A beautiful boxed set of seven Hardcover Classics by Jane Austen, including Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, and Love and Freindship.

Each of these novels is a love story and a story about marriage—marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not mere romances. Ironic, comic, and wise, they are masterly studies of the society Austen observed.

Part of Penguin’s beautiful Hardcover Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.
