From the editor of the popular "Annotated Pride and Prejudice" comes an annotated edition of Jane Austen's "Persuasion "that makes the beloved novel an even more satisfying and fulfilling read. Here is the complete text of "Persuasion "with hundreds of annotations on facing pages, including:

Packed with all kinds of illuminating information--from what Bath and Lyme looked like at the time to how "bathing machines" at seaside resorts were used to how Wentworth could have made a fortune from the Napoleonic Wars--David M.
