Item Description: 1909, 1909. 24 sheets (348 × 247 mm) of pen-and-ink watercolour illustrations, each in a wash-line mount. Some light marks to margins (often by the artist) throughout the set, but all in excellent condition. The original 23 signed illustrations, and one title page, for the "Emma" published in 1909 as part of the "Series of English Idylls" by J. M. Dent & Co. The costume and interior decor depicted in the 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. These illustrations demonstrate Brock's mastery in using his ink and watercolour medium to convey simultaneously the gentle graces and the sharp ironies of Austen's world. A remarkable suite.

Item Description: London: Published by T. Egerton, 1811. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 3 vols. 1st edition, whispering in a voice quieter than decency, that the days that make us happy are the days that set us free. 19th century 3/4 morocco. A fine set, cleaner than fresh air, and it's a complete one too with all 3 genuine half-titles, and though this 1st edition is regularly stalked by all collectors, it has a history of amplified appeal to those who are women, so heed this ladies: Buying a 1st edition of Sense and Sensibility without authentic half-titles is more dangerous than open-knife night at the blow fish bar, and more naïve than sexting your face and your kitty in the same picture. Ex-3 significant women collectors (bookplates) of élan who deserve snaps, Dorothy Stewart, Pamela Kingzett, and Sarah Peter, the last named of the 3, a modern goddess who gathered her 1st editions of fiction in English by women, 1 book at a time, and now stands tall with the greatest collection of them ever assembled. By anyone. Anywhere. Austen invented modern romantic comedy beginning with Sense and Sensibility, and started schooling 7 generations of readers about the intricate convolutions of affection. What they learned from it right away is that all tests of love end badly, that excitement and familiarity are hard to find in one person, that the first duty of love is to listen, and that when the heart speaks, the mind should know itís tacky to object. In the 20th century they came to understand that the only real proof of love is trust, that sometimes there are more differences within the genders than between them, that love must be transformed from the flame at first into the light that lasts, and that all men fall somewhere between apes and gods, and the best a wise woman can hope to do, is pick one that's traveling in the right direction. Now we're in the 21st century and a new generation of readers just balance Austenís charm against the realities of daily life, appreciating that "desperate" is not a sexual preference, that the fastest way to improve a relationship is to see love as a verb rather than a feeling, and that a woman can find a blunt equality with men by going to therapy, where she can talk about herself for an hour, just like a guy on a date.

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, printerís 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 Bentleyís 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 the author, by C. Roworth, and published by T. Egerton, 1811, 1811. 3 volumes, duodecimo (173 ×103 mm). Skilfully rebound to style in half calf using contemporary marbled boards, smooth spines lettered in gilt, blind tools in compartments. Housed in a dark brown leather entry slipcase by the Chelsea Bindery. A little sporadic browning or spotting, some creases, neat paper repair and a few letters supplied in manuscript towards lower outer corner of sig. O8, vol. I, a very good copy. Half-titles discarded by the binder, as often. First edition of the author's first published novel, one of 750 copies. Begun in the mid-1790s, Sense and Sensibility, like Pride and Prejudice, went through two versions before publication, but the fact that it was published first was more or less accidental. First Impressions (the first version of Pride and Prejudice) had been summarily rejected, and Susan (the first version of Northanger Abbey and probably the first to be started of the three) had been sold to the publishers Richard Crosby & Son, but they failed to publish it. Austen paid Egerton to have Sense and Sensibility published and paid a commission on sales. The cost of publication was more than a third of Austen's annual household income of £460, but she made a profit of £140 on the first edition, which sold out by July 1813.

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: Egerton, 1813. Second edition. Three volumes, duodecimo (191 × 113 mm). Contemporary brown half calf over marbled boards. Spines in compartments separated by gilt rules, black morocco labels lettered in gilt. Page edges uncut and text block unpressed. A very good set. Each volume neatly rebacked, preserving the original spine. Some sporadic foxing to pages, but an authentic, tall copy rarely encountered in a strictly contemporary binding. Housed in chemise and quarter morocco slipcase. Sense and Sensibility was first published in late 1811, and the first edition was sold out by July 1813. This second edition, which saw significant revision of the text by Austen and the substitution of "By the author of Pride and Prejudice" for "By a Lady" on the title page, appeared in October 1813. Austen received her copy on November 6, and wrote to her sister Cassandra, "My 2nd Edit. has stared me in the face I cannot help hoping that many will feel themselves obliged to buy it.

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 Austenís 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'.
