This is an auction for PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by Jane Austen.

From Wikipedia:

"First published in 1813, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE was Jane Austen's second published novel. It was written between 1796 and 1797 in Steventon, Hampshire, where Austen lived in the rectory. Twenty year old Elizabeth Bennet, is the second eldest of the five daughters of a relatively poor country gentleman in the fictional estate of Longbourn, Hertfordshire, England. Her father's estate is entailed to Mr Collins, the closest male relative, meaning that upon Mr Bennet's death, she and her mother and sisters will be turned out of their house and left to fend for themselves, something which obsesses her mother. Elizabeth's older sister, Jane, is sweet-tempered and intelligent, but her three younger sisters are relatively uneducated; the two youngest being obsessed with clothes and flirting with a camp of officers stationed in a nearby village. As the novel opens, Mr Bingley, a wealthy young gentleman, rents a country estate near to the Bennets, accompanied by his two fashionable sisters and his good friend, the fabulously rich Mr Darcy. Whereas Bingley is well-liked in the community, Darcy begins his acquaintance with Elizabeth, her family, and their neighbours with condescension and distaste for all of the country people. Despite Mrs Bennet's interference and the opposition of his sisters, who believe Jane to be socially inferior, Mr Bingley and Jane begin to grow closer. Elizabeth, amused but rather stung by Darcy's haughty rejection of her at a local dance, makes it a point to match his coldness with her own wit . . ."
