When Chatto & Windus chose an illustrator for its 1908 edition, it turned to a political cartoonist, A. (Arthur) Wallis Mills (1878–1940). The edition was beautiful and fashionable, with even its endpapers lavishly illustrated in color, as you can see on the left. In his work on Austen, Wallis Mills wears his politics lightly, unlike his work in the satirical magazine, Punch.
Wallis Mills is best known today for his Punch suffrage cartoons, including "The Suffragette That Knew Jiu-Jitsu” (1910). Wallis Mills's Elizabeth Bennet has features in common with his combative suffragette, and his Mr. Woodhouse resembles the cowering police officer. Below them are a few images from one of Wallis Mills's Pride and Prejudice volumes, including his Darcy.
