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, a 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, 173x100mm. Bound in contemporary half calf, over marbled boards, showing the faint overprinting with ruling and titles for a ledger book. Complete with all three half titles, the one to volume one being bound at the rear as called for when present. A very good set indeed with wear to the spines and corners and some minor superficial repairs to the spines of volume one and two and the joints of volume three cracking but holding firm. Internally, exceptionally clean and fresh with no tears or chips and just occasional light foxing and a mark to O2r in volume one. Overall a pleasingly authentic set of this popular novel, rarely found with all three half titles in a strictly contemporary binding. The author's fourth and penultimate book published in an initial print run of 2000 copies shortly before she died. 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". Rarely encountered with all three half titles. Bookseller Inventory # 33854

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: London: for John Murray, 1816, 1816. 3 volumes, duodecimo (177 × 102 mm). Early 19th-century half calf, marbled boards, red sprinkled edges. Early ownership inscription shaved by the binder's knife at the head of vol. 3 title. Somewhat worn at extremities, front joint of vol. 1 starting, some slight offsetting and browning, still a very good copy. Half-titles discarded by the binder, as usual. First edition of the last completed of Jane Austen's novels, fully displaying her mastery of free indirect speech, an innovation in the English novel. She had fallen out with Egerton over publication of Mansfield Park and transferred to Murray, who published the second edition of that book and the first edition of Emma on the same terms: each was published at the author's expense, with profits to the author after payment of a 10 per cent commission to the publisher. In keeping with Murray's stated views on edition sizes, 2,000 copies were printed. Emma is the only one of Jane Austen's novels to bear a dedication, unwillingly made, to the Prince Regent, the arrangement of which generated a richly comic correspondence between the author and the Prince Regent's librarian.

Item Description: London Printed for T. Egerton, 1814. Contemporary Marbled Boards [AUSTEN, Jane]. Mansfield Park: A Novel.By the Author of "Sense and Sensibility," and "Pride and Prejudice." London: Printed for T. Egerton, 1814. First edition. Three twelvemo volumes. [iv], 360, [iv]; [iv], 294; [iv]; [iv], 354, [iv], pp. Wanting the half-titles, but with all terminal blanks. Contemporary half gray polished calf over marbled boards, gilt-stamped spines, rebacked to style. Boards rubbed as expected, previous owner's contemporary signature on title pages and armorial bookplates with faint off-setting. Overall, a very good and attractive, clean set in a contemporary binding. "Mansfield Park is the most condensed and complex novel ever written by Jane Austen, and is her first novel that was conceived, written, and published at her mature years. Even though it lacks in the playful ironic humor which is so characteristic of Austen’s other novels, it is the novel that most clearly shows another aspect of the writer: her philosophical anxieties, her social concern, and her mature feminism. Austen seems fearful of the impact change and progress has on traditional life including its morals, beliefs, and behavior. As a result her themes revolve around change, the battle between good and evil, character, dependency, and independence. The subtle battle between good and evil is one between the moral forces of the serene Mansfield Park, and the amoral intruders whose "London values" pose a threat to the traditional ways of Mansfield" (A. Hassapi) The third of Jane Austen's novels to be published was begun about the same time as Sense and Sensibility and was accepted for publication. The novel was published in May 1814 in an edition apparently of 1250 copies. John Murray later expressed 'astonishment that so small an edition of such a work should have been sent into the world'.

Item Description: London: J. M. Dent & Co.; E. P. Dutton & Co., New York, 1907–09, 1907. 6 volumes, octavo. Original gilt decorative vellum, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, pictorial endpapers. Northanger Abbey: front hinge starting, rear hinge partly cracked but holding, but text block sound, Sense & Sensibility: discolouration to rear board from dampstaining, also affecting final few pages. Otherwise a beautiful set, in bright vellum. Each volume with 24 colour plates by C. E. Brock. First Brock editions of the complete novels of Jane Austen, rare in the original vellum bindings. C. E. Brock (1870–1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen within Macmillan's 1895–7 series (with introductions by Austin Dobson), Brock illustrating only Pride and Prejudice, and Hugh Thomson illustrating the other 5 titles. This series was only illustrated in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later, J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite, this time in colour, and to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. Dent's "Series of English Idylls" thus presents the first Brock illustrations for the complete Austen set and the first in colour. Brock was elected as a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1908, and certainly his vision of Austen's world, its gentle graces and sharp ironies, is best expressed, as here, in colour. Furthermore, the colourful costumes and interior decor depicted in these illustrations are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, for Charles Brock and his brother Henry collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

Item Description: 1816. 3 vols., 12mo., bound without half-titles, but retaining the terminal blank in volume II and the separate imprint leaf in volume III; some very occasional foxing, but a very good copy in later nineteenth century half purple calf and marbled boards, rebacked preserving the old spines; ownerships signatures of E Cardwell to title-pages; presentation inscription in volume I: 'Cosmo Gordon from G[eoffrey] L[angdon] K[eynes] 1920'.Second edition, revised. This is the only one of Jane Austen's novels with textual revisions of any significance. She 'seems in general to have prepared the text for the first editions of her novels with the greatest care, so that they contain few misprints, and the alterations made in the later editions consist usually only of unimportant details' (Keynes, TLS, 30 August 1923). In Mansfield Park, however, there are a number of more important revisions of the technical nautical details, probably on advice from one of the sailor brothers, Francis or Charles. Keynes, who gave the present copy to his friend Cosmo Alexander Gordon, suggests that Charles, as the probable model for one of the novel's characters, was more likely to have been 'critical of lapses in his sister's nautical terminology' (ibid.).The passage in question (III, 150-1) concerns young Sam Price's first ship, The Thrush. For the ship 'was under weigh' (1814), we now read 'she had slipped her moorings and was coming out' (1816); for 'she lays just astern of the Endymion, with the Cleopatra to larboard', we read 'she lays close to the Endymion, between her and the Cleopatra, just to the eastward of the sheer hulk. "Ha! cried William, "that's just where I should have put her myself. It's the best birth in the Spithead ."' [this last sentence entirely new text], and further changes in a similar vein.Egerton's poor printing of the first edition of Mansfield Park in 1814, his lack of expertise in marketing the book and unwillingness to risk another edition, as well as his behaviour over Pride and Prejudice – issuing a second edition without her knowledge – were all factors in Jane Austen's decision to entrust this second edition and her subsequent novels to Murray.Gilson A7; Keynes 7.

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. The scene depicted shows Kitty and Lydia welcoming their sisters to a lunch they have prepared. Bookseller Inventory # 75970
