A Fancy New Edition of Pride and Prejudice Is Coming This Fall
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.
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.
