    • Since you don’t mention the publisher I do not know how it was originally published – it could be a volume 2 of a 2 volume set or a 3-volume set, or the complete text in a set of Austen’s complete works, this being volume 2 containing Pride & Prejudice – would need more information to give you a complete answer – you should email the person selling it and ask about the publisher and the number of pages in the volume and the first and last sentence – and what does it say on the title page…
      Hope this helps you at least ask them the right questions..

  1. Are there any modern day authors who write anything like Austen? Are there modern fiction writers you’d recommend to an Austen lover?

    • Hi CyndiMom – well you have asked the $64,000 question! – and one we have all trying to answer for 200 years! – I could write a whole book about it! – I will send you a few links with ideas, but even though this is not a modern-day story, I would first highly recommend you read Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South, a sort of victorian version of P&P, with the darcy/elizabeth dynamic swtiched around a bit – anyone else reading this please post your choices for the best follow-ups to Austen…
      Thanks for stopping by,

  2. Thank you so much, Deb — I really appreciate your response. I saw the North and South Masterpiece mini series a few years ago, but I’ve forgotten the story. I definitely will look for the book. I’ve read Cranford, but nothing else by Gaskell. My grad English professor told me I might like to read Francis Hodgens Burnett, or Fitzgerald’s Josephine and Basil stories. I think he also mentioned Edith Wharton’s The House of Mirth. Anyway, I’ve struggled to find current day young adult fiction that reminds me much of Austen’s writing. I’ve read lots of very recent YA books, but I’m not the biggest fan of gritty realism. I think Toni Morrison said something about writing the book you want to read if it’s not already out there. I keep this in mind when I’m writing! It would be nice to have a few more modern day novels that were more reminiscent of Austen. Though, there is only one Jane Austen! :~) Cyndi

  3. I have heard that the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice is the best version for the movie watching. I have three teenaged girls and they would rather watch the movie before they even think to read the books. Is there some place that I can obtain the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice? I have been a Jane Austen fan since my teen years and love her writing still.
