A beautiful hardback edition of Jane Austen’s classic novel from Penguin’s Clothbound Classics series, designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith and featuring an introduction by Gillian Beer. This collectible edition is bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.

At twenty-seven, Anne Elliot is no longer young and has few romantic prospects. Eight years earlier, she had been persuaded by her friend Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval captain with neither fortune nor rank. What happens when they encounter each other again is movingly told in Jane Austen's last completed novel. Set in the fashionable societies of Lyme Regis and Bath, Persuasion is a brilliant satire of vanity and pretension, but, above all, it is a love story tinged with the heartache of missed opportunities.
