"Jane Austen deserves, and here gets, the reward of other people's skillful work on her little bit of ivory, two inches wide... The Cambridge Edition justifies its claim to the 'the first ever scholarly edition of the works of Jane Austen', and is a fine tribute to her for the twenty-first century." -Jane Austen Society Newsletter
