Chiltern Publishing was formed in 2018 with a vision to create the most beautiful classics. Jane Austen's original books (particularly Pride and Prejudice) from the 1800s were our inspiration. So, using a perfect mix of tradition and the very latest in printing techniques, 19th Century quality has met 21st Century technology. The specification of our books reflects the size and format of the original Jane Austen books, and this is maintained throughout all of our editions. With wonderfully detailed covers, sparkling gilt edges, creamy pages, and stitched binding they are the most beautiful classics ever published.

This book has a matching lined journal (sold separately). They make a great gift when paired together but are also just as beautiful on their own.

Emma by Jane Austen tells the story Emma Woodhouse, a rich, clever, and beautiful young woman, has just seen her friend, companion, and former governess, Miss Taylor, married to a neighbouring widower, Mr. Weston. While the match is suitable in every way, Emma cannot help sighing over her loss, for now only she and her father are left at Hartfield. Mr. Woodhouse is too old and too fond of worrying about trivialities to be a sufficient companion for his daughter. The Woodlouse's are the great family in the village of Highbury. In their small circle of friends, there are enough middle-aged ladies to make up card tables for Mr. Woodhouse, but there is no young lady to be a friend and confidant to Emma. Lonely for her beloved Miss Taylor, now Mrs. Weston, Emma takes under her wing Harriet Smith, the Parlor boarder at a nearby boarding school. Although not in the least brilliant, Harriet is a pretty seventeen-year-old girl with pleasing, unassuming manners, and a gratifying habit of looking up to Emma as a paragon.
