Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen - Chiltern Classics


'If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad.'

Northanger Abbey tells the story of a young Catherine Morland who leaves her sheltered, rural home to enter the busy, sophisticated world of Bath in the late 1790s. Austen observes with insight and humour the interaction between Catherine and the various characters whom she meets there, and tracks her growing understanding of the world about her.

This is a Chiltern Classics edition of Northanger Abbey. That means it's gorgeous! Chiltern Publishing was formed in 2018 with a vision to create the most beautiful classics - inspired by original copies of Jane Austen's works from the 1800s. All Chiltern books are a pleasure to behold and to handle with  wonderfully detailed covers, sparkling gilt edges, creamy pages and stitched binding.  Hardback, but dainty - not too heavy, so good for reading in bed. They make beautiful additions to your bookshelves and gorgeous gifts. Don't miss the matching journals.
