Book 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 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. 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.

Book 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 it’s 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 Austen’s 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.

Book 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.

Book Description: Egerton, 1814. First edition. Three volumes all bound in contemporary maroon half morocco over marbled boards with spines titled and elaborately decorated with gilt. Half titles to vols I and III, but wanting in vol II. A well margined copy measuring 105 x 175 mm. Externally near fine with little wear and no repair to the binding, just a scuff to the marbled paper on the back cover of vol III. Internally very fresh, a stain to p98, a corner chip to I12 taking out catchword and a repaired tear to M2 in vol I and a repaired tear to F1 and some marks to facing pages 184/185 in Vol III. These minor flaws notwithstanding, an unusually well preserved copy in a very handsome contemporary binding. The author's third novel, written between 1811 and 1813, which quickly found a publisher on the strength of her previous two novels. Despite Egerton's confidence, he only published 1250 copies in the first edition in May 1814. These were sold out by November, and John Murray later "expressed astonishment that so small an edition of such a work should have been sent into the world.". Bookseller Inventory # 30184

Book 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".

Book 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. I shall not mind imagining it a disagreeable duty to them, so as they do it" (Gilson, p. 16). Gilson A1. Bookseller Inventory # 32298

Book Description: London: Printed for John Murray, 1816, 1816. 3 volumes, octavo (170 × 100 mm). Bound without half titles in contemporary black half calf, spines gilt in compartments, marbled sides. Housed in a dark blue cloth slipcase. Bindings lightly rubbed, spine to volume I skilfully repaired, spotting and a little marking to contents. A very good set. Contemporary bookseller's ticket to each front pastedown. First edition of perhaps the most perfectly constructed of Jane Austen's novels. 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, 2000 copies were printed. Emma is the only one of Jane Austen's novels to bear a dedication, to the Prince Regent, the arrangement of which generated a richly comic correspondence between the author and the Prince Regent's librarian.

Book Description: John Murray, London, 1816. First Edition. Octavo (7 3/8" x 4 1/2" or 187mm x 115mm), 3 volumes, tastefully and appropriately bound to style in 3/4 calf over marbled boards; blind-stamped fleurons and brown leather lettering pieces on spine. Marbled end papers are matched to the marbled boards; all edges gilt. With advertisement at the end of volume three; without half-titles. Truly, an exceptional copy, internally clean and bright, with nice wide margins; occasional light off-setting. Handsomely presented in a leather trimmed, open end slipcase. Emma is unquestionably, one of the greatest of English novels. Ms. Austen began writing Emma on January 21, 1814 and finished on March 29, 1815. After several printing delays, Emma was finally published in late December 1815, at the author's own expense, in an edition of 2000 copies. Ms. Austen died shortly thereafter. Sir Walter Scott's review of Emma follows: "We therefore bestow no mean compliment upon the author of Emma, when we say that.she has produced sketches of such spirit and originality that we never miss the excitation which depends upon the narrative of uncommon events."

Her brother Henry's biographical notice, dated 13 December 1817, though generally reckoned to be too lavish with unqualified praise, is the first acknowledgement in print of Jane Austen as the author of her six novels.

Book Description: London: Printed for T. Egerton, Military Library, Whitehall, 1813., 1813. 3 vols., 12mo. With all three half-titles; just a little spotting here and there, but a lovely and entirely complete copy, elegantly bound by Philip Dusel in period-style half burgundy morocco, spines gilt. Early ownership inscription "Henriette Pereira" on each title, and slightly later inscription "Fries Vöslau" on each half-title (see below). "The Second Edition" of what is generally reckoned Jane Austen’s greatest novel, and considered by some the best novel ever written in English. The first edition appeared in January 1813 and was an immediate success, with fashionable London offering a score of possibilities as to who the author might be. Jane Austen had sold the copyright to the publisher and appears not to have been consulted about the second edition. It appeared in October, with Vol. I printed by C. Roworth and Vols. II-III by G. Sidney; on the whole Roworth’s typesetter did a better job at correcting obvious misprints than Sidney’s. Complete copies with all half-titles of lifetime editions of Jane Austen’s novels have become decidedly uncommon in the marketplace. This one is particularly agreeable in also showing the early nineteenth-century germanophone taste for English fiction. The signature on the title-pages is that of the pianist and salonnière Henriette [von] Pereira[-Arnstein] (Berlin 1780-Vienna 1859), and the one on the half-titles "Fries Vöslau" indicates that the books were passed on to Henriette’s daughter Florentina von Pereira-Arnstein (1814-52) and husband sometime after Florentina’s marriage to Graf Moritz II von Fries of Schoss Vöslau in 1836.
