Jane Austen’s romance novel Pride and Prejudice was first published in 1813 in three volumes and limited to an initial run of just 1500 copies. One original set sold for $46,000 at auction in 2018. If that’s out of your price range, you might want to consider a new version offered by publisher Thomas Nelson. Its collector’s edition, with a new laser-cut dust jacket, is slated to go on sale in October for $29.99.

Thomas Nelson Publishing

The revisiting of the book features a laser-cut cover with the outlines of protagonists Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, who appear to be at odds before recognizing they’re made for each other. The title is foil-stamped in the book cover itself. Thomas Nelson plans on a print run of just 10,000 copies, each of them numbered.

Limited editions of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights, and Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities are also part of the publisher’s winter assortment. The book can be pre-ordered at the Thomas Nelson store or on Amazon for $20.99.
