Description - Wit and Wisdom of Jane Austen by Jane Austen

A Treasure Trove of 175 Quips-Both Witty and Wise-from Beloved Writer Jane Austen!

"Wisdom is better than wit, and in the long run will certainly have the laugh on her side."-Jane Austen to Fanny Austen, 1814

No wiser or wittier words have been spoken than by one of the world's most celebrated writers, Jane Austen. Nor have her words ever been presented in such an elegant and thoughtful fashion than in this lovely collection. Covering the timeless topics of happiness, family, fashion, beauty, human nature, society, and, of course, love and marriage, each quip has been curated from Austen's novels and private letters. Complementing Jane's words are more than fifty delightful 1890s illustrations from her works, resulting in the perfect gift for Janeites, aspiring writers, and anyone in pursuit of wit and wisdom.
