This giveaway contest open internationally was linked to our Sense and Sensibility Bicentenary Celebration. Have you read the interesting piece Lynn Shepherd wrote for us? "Tracing the roots of Sense and Sensibility. Samuel Richardson, Jane Austen and Elinor & Marianne"  .  If you commented and left your  e-mail address, pay great attention because you may be the lucky winner of a copy of "The Annotated Sense and Sensibility"

In The Annotated Sense and Sensibility, David M. Shapard has added annotations and images to augment Austen’s classic novel. It is a handsome paperback, but also a serious one to immerse oneself in — with over 700 pages of complete and unabridged text, all of Shapard's notes on the right-hand pages. Contributing to the book's heft, Shapard repeats definitions throughout the book, so the reader doesn't need to flip back and check an earlier definition. Annotations include black and white period illustrations, maps of England where the characters travel, word definitions, backgrounds in history, a chronology of events in the novel, a bibliography, and Shapard's interpretations of Austen's novel and her characters. 

Who will soon be the owner of a copy of such a precious book?
