Item Description: Printed for T. Egerton, 1813. First edition. Three volumes, bound in contemporary brown speckled calf. Green morocco title labels and gilt rules to the spine. "Charleton" embossed in gilt to upper board of each volume. Half titles present in each volume. A tall copy with each volume neatly rebacked, retaining most of the original spines with repairs to the joints and corners. Internally clean with occasional minor marks or foxing and a couple of marginal closed tears to leaves in volume III. Bookplate to the verso of each front endpaper. A very good example of of Austen's most popular novel, now rarely encountered in a contemporary binding. The author's second and most famous novel, which has become one of the most prominent literary works to come from the nineteenth century. The first draft of the novel was written under the working title of 'First Impressions' in 1796. In 1797 Jane Austen's father wrote to the publisher Cadell to ask if he would publish the novel. The offer was rejected by return of post. In 1800 The Minerva Press published a novel by Margaret Holford entitled First Impressions, which probably led to Austen changing the title of the work. In the following years, Pride and Prejudice was heavily rewritten and the copyright eventually sold to Egerton in 1812. There is no record of the number of copies of the first edition, but Keynes suggests 1500 as the probable print run. The book was well received and the first edition sold out within the year and one contemporary reader wrote, "I have finished the Novel called Pride and Prejudice, which I think is a very superior work. I really think it is the most probable fiction I have ever read." The association with Susan Carnegie is intriguing. Born in Edinburgh, she lived at Charleton from her marriage to George Carnegie in 1769 until her death in 1821. She was one of the most prominent early feminists who ". learned to challenge the idea that women were intellectually less able than men, choosing instead to explain discrepancies in terms of women's educational opportunities and their general treatment in a patriarchal society. Certainly in her correspondence Susan was fearless in drawing attention to a lack of respect or of rudeness on the part of male writers." (Oxford DNB) As a rule Regency binders removed the half titles so copies in contemporary bindings retaining them are rare; the copies in such prominent collections as Sir Geoffrey Keynes's and R.W.Chapman's all had no half titles, nor do the Bodleian or Cambridge University library copies.

Item Description: London Printed for John Murray, 1816. First Edition of "Emma" Uncut in a Contemporary Binding [AUSTEN, Jane]. Emma: A Novel. In Three Volumes. By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice," &c. &c. London: Printed for John Murray, 1816. First edition. Three twelvemo volumes. (Measures 188 x 110 mm). [4], 322, [1]; [4], 351, [1, printer’s imprint]; [4], 363, [1, advertisements] pp. Bound without the half-title in volume I, which is very common since this leaf was printed as part of the last signature and was therefore either overlooked (and left in place) or discarded by many binders of the period. Even copies in original boards often lack this half-title, most notably the Mount Bellow copy, described in 1933 Sotheby's sale catalogue as "in the finest possible state." Contemporary and almost certainly Continental, possibly German original quarter red paper spines over marbled boards, gilt-stamped on spines in Gothic style "Emma By the Author of Pride and Prejudice." Most certainly this book was sent straight from the publisher to the binder in sheets. Overall, aa fine, fresh and entirely uncut copy in a contemporary binding, wanting one rear flyleaf. Minor rubbing to upper joints of volume I and II and the lower joint of volume II. Housed in a red morocco backed clamshell. Emma was published on 29 December 1815. "2000 copies were printed, and of these the records show that 1248 were sold by October 1816" (Gilson). The first American edition appeared in Philadelphia in 1816 and the first French translation in Paris in the same year, with a partial reissue in Vienna in 1817. No further editions are known until Richard Bentley’s reissue in his Standard Novels series in February 1833. Gilson A8. Keynes, Austen, 8. Sadleir 62d. HBS 67001. $45,000.

Item Description: Murray, 1816. First edition. Three volumes. 12mo. Early plain grey boards with morocco title labels on the spines. Pages uncut and all half titles present (vols. II and III, none called for in vol. I). Joints tender with a small chip to the base of the spine on vol. III, but very clean internally with just a pale stain to the end of vol. II affecting the reverse of the last page of text. Hinge of one volume repaired. A nice and very authentic set. The author's fourth and penultimate book published in an initial print run of 2000 copies shortly before she died. Copies of Emma with half titles are uncommon, and uncut pages are usually only found in the very few copies surviving in original boards. We think it likely that this copy was not bound on purchase like most copies, but rebound sympathetically in keeping with the original at a slightly later stage, when the fragile boards disintegrated. Contemporary reviews were mixed; one critic commenting "there is no story whatever, and the heroine is not better than other people; but the characters are all so true to life, and the style so piquant, that it does not require the adventitious aids of mystery and adventure".

Item Description: 1907, 1907. Margins slightly marked, with a very slight running of the signature ink. In excellent condition. Original pen-and-ink water colour illustration (370 × 267 mm) presented in a hand made gold leaf frame, with conservation glass and in an attractive wash-line mount. The original signed illustration for the "Pride and Prejudice" published in 1907 as part of the "Series of English Idylls" by J. M. Dent & Co. The illustrations Brock created are a full and original revision of his previous illustrations for the "Pride and Prejudice" published by Macmillan in 1895. The costume and interior decor depicted in these illustrations is reputedly accurate to the Regency period, for Charles Brock and his brother Henry used to collect antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio. C. E. Brock was elected as a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in the year following the publication of these illustrations.
