I think it's neat that the version of Mansfield Park (Norton Critical Edition) that we found upstairs in the main library actually contains the play that's performed in the novel (Lovers' Vows). This, I've never seen before. Our old paperback is very crumbly and I will always try to save wear and tear on clothbound editions of the World's Classics by OUP, when they were tiny and printed on Bible or India paper and some had a ribbon bookmark. Some of the dust jackets on these volumes have disappeared; some are in bad shape; a few are almost like new.
