Pride & Prejudice & Puzzles: Ingenious Riddles & Vexing Dilemmas Inspired by Jane Austen's Novels (Paperback)
Normally we can get this book to the store for you in a day or two. During the seasonal rush, this might not be possible.

Permit yourself the indulgence of an interval of recreation and amusement to make your acquaintance with the riddles and conundrums contained within; for you are sure to receive no inconsiderable pleasure from the puzzling over and resolving of them. Your quest for an amiable distraction will be over, leaving your curiosity entirely satisfied. Puzzles there are plenty, clues there are many, and the pages are handsomely decorated with fine engravings entirely suited to the subject matter.
"Really, Mr. Collins," cried Elizabeth with some warmth, "you puzzle me exceedingly. . ."--Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
