First published in 1811, Sense and Sensibility chronicles two sisters' experiences through romance, misunderstandings and heartbreak. Elinor Dashwood with her good sense and well-developed sense of justice forms a foil to her romantic, headstrong sister Marianne. Economics and social standing also play important parts in one of Austen's most endearing stories. The illustrated edition below includes 39 black and white illustrations by Hugh Thomson.
