Illustrated six-volume edition of the works of the Brontë sisters, with full-page color plates by Edmund Dulac in each volume.

"Do you think I am an automaton? -- a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! -- I have as much soul as you -- and full as much heart!" A lovely edition of some of the most beloved English novels, in near-fine condition.
