Jane Eyre (New York Public Library Collector's Editions) - Charlotte Brontë

Look at this beautiful edition of Jane Eyre my uncle gave me. Hardcover, lovely dust jacket, striped endpapers, reproduction of 1923 French Lithographs in the text. He's so good to think of me.


I actually don't have a hardcover Jane Eyre, and now I probably will never need another; this one is so fine. 


And the best part: My uncle is a fantastic flea market/second hand shop/yard sale/antique store bargain hunter, so he probably got it for a heckuva deal. I'll be the beneficiary of that anytime.


Thanks and love, from
