Friday Fiction: Sense and Sensibility

Sense and Sensibility
Austen
original: 1811

Submitter: A super boring textbook from the 90s or a classic in large print? Which Dashwood sister is banished to the red chair in the futuristic building? So many public domain images could have been used – flowers, English countryside, fabric, etc….

Holly: I tried to find this cover on Amazon to get the copyright year of this edition. (I didn’t find it). There are lots of weird covers for this book! This is one of the strangest, though. This cover has been used for other random books such as A History of Mathematics by Florian Cajori, A History of German Literature by Wilhelm Wackernagel, and my personal favorite: Pleadings and Depositions in the Duchy Court of Lancaster  by Henry Fishwick. Not an awful library book, just a weird cover.
