No one who had seen Catherine Morland in her infancy, would have supposed her born to be an heroine.

The daughter of a clergyman from an ordinary family, Catherine Morland’s only encounters with romance have been through the pages of the Gothic novels she devours.

During an eventful season at Bath she experiences the joys of fashionable society for the first time. She is delighted with her new acquaintances: flirtatious Isabella, who shares Catherine's love of romance and horror, and sophisticated Henry and Eleanor Tilney, who invite her to their father's mysterious house, Northanger Abbey.

There, her imagination influenced by novels of sensation and intrigue, Catherine imagines terrible crimes committed by General Tilney but she is about to discover that society holds a very different kind of danger.

With its broad comedy and irrepressible heroine, this is the most youthful and and optimistic of Jane Austen's works.

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

Romantic, witty, acerbic and endlessly popular, Jane Austen’s novels are amongst the most revered, relevant and consistently readable novels in English Literature. Subtly different in tone, they range from the Gothic satire of Northanger Abbey, the drama of Pride and Prejudice and the razor-sharp observation of Emma to the poignancy and tenderness of Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park and Persuasion.

“Jane Austen - what's not to like!”

I like the Everyman hardback collection. They are well put together and reasonably priced. The typeface is clear and easy to read.

This particular novel is early Jane Austen, not quite as accomplished as some of her... More
