Seventeen-year-old Catherine Morland, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Morland, is a tomboy with a wild imagination and a passion for Gothic novels. Family friends Mr. and Mrs. Allen, invite Catherine to spend the season in Bath and she readily accepts. At her first ball, Catherine meets and dances with Henry Tilney.

Catherine accepts the invitation with pleasure, although she imagines that the Abbey will be rather like one of the gloomy castles in her books. Catherine is at first welcomed by General Tilney (Henry's father), who believes that Catherine is an heiress. When he realizes that Catherine is not rich, however, he sends her packing. Back at home, Catherine is unhappy, missing Henry and disillusioned about her precious Gothic novels ...

Jane Austen’s earliest novel, Northanger Abbey is perhaps the author’s most light-hearted work. The main heroine, Catherine Morland, whose vision of the world is heavily affected by the numerous Gothic novels she has read, enters Bath, a place beloved by the members of the high society. As she makes new acquaintances, naive and impressionable Catherine looks at them through the prism of the Gothic novels popular at the time and, thus, creates comical misunderstandings throughout the story. Both a Gothic novel and an amusing satire, Northanger Abbey is a must-read, which became even more entertaining in this exclusive illustrated edition. Illustrated by Dmitrii Rybalko.

Northanger Abbey is about the misadventures of the ingenuous Catherine Morland, whose indefatigable reading of gothic novels sends her imagination into hilarious overdrive. Austen's literary burlesque is tempered with edginess and cirumspection, however, as ordinary life takes a more sinister turn. This edition also includes Austen's other short works and shows her to be as innovative at the start of her career as at its close.
