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: 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'. Gilson A6. Keynes, Austen, 6. HBS 67564. $17,500. Bookseller Inventory # 67564

Item Description: George Allen, London, 1894. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First edition thus. A Fine copy of the famous "peacock" edition of Pride and Prejudice, illustrated by Hugh Thomson. The book is in exceptional condition, having been tucked away for a hundred years in it's original dust jacket. Easily the brightest, cleanest copy of the book that we have seen. A contemporary owner's name on the front end paper in light pencil, otherwise unmarked and unread. The original pictorial dust jacket is toned on the spine and at the edges (as you'd expect), with a large chip at the top of the spine (not affecting any lettering) and with a few short tears, but otherwise complete. A remarkable survivor, the only trade copy in dust jacket that we can locate (and none in the auction record). Note: This book was issued with all page edges gilt and with just the top-edge gilt and the others untrimmed. The former is by far the more common style and that binding is about 8 - 10 mm shorter than this one. The dust jacket was designed for that shorter binding, and consequently appears a bit short on this book, although it hasn't been trimmed or tampered with in any way. The rear panel advertises the existing titles in George Allen's Illustrated Gift Books series, Pride and Prejudice at the head, including the new edition of Ruskin's The Harbours of England which ended up being delayed until April 1895.Austen's beloved masterpiece. "Pride and Prejudice" follows the classic relationship between the clever Elizabeth Bennett and the seemingly distant Mr. Darcy. Austen actually finished an early version of the novel, titled "First Impressions," when she was a mere 21. The book received a great deal of praise when it was released, with one well regarded critic of the day saying he "would rather have written Pride and Prejudice, or Tom Jones, than any of the Waverley Novels."The artist, Hugh Thomson, was most famous for his illustrations of Austen's work, as well as the work of Charles Dickens. Known for his attention to detail, he would often spend a great deal of time in museums researching the lifestyles and dress of the characters he was depicting, Thomson started working on his drawings for "Pride and Prejudice" in 1893. They proved an immense success, selling over 10,000 copies in the few years after they were released. He would go on to illustrate many of Austen's other novels as well. Fine in Very Good dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 1861

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.

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.

Item Description: Derby & Jackson, New York, 1857. First editions thus. Offered here are three very scarce and separate editions issued by Derby & Jackson in 1857, but not simultaneously, and never anticipated as a set. Six separate titles, similar bound in contemporary three quarter brown calf, five raised bands, gilt lettering on spine, marbled boards, marbled endsheets and marbled edges. Owned by same individual (contemporaneously) and passed down through family, and inscribed in all three volumes on front fly: "A. B. Parker, Oct. 2, 1866." As well, Parker has added his accession number into each volume, "No. 32, No. 33, and No. 34," respectively. A rare grouping, made more interesting by common provenance, putting these rare editions together in one place. Mostly very good, one volume with spine chipped away on top panel. Hinges split and chipped, except Sense and Sensibility which are intact. Calf and marbled paper showing wear, corners bumped and chipped, browning especially to prelims, one signature neatly sprung, not detracting. Most rare thus. Bookseller Inventory # 3493
