About this Item

Third Edition. Two Volumes, uncut, in the publisher's original blue paper-covered boards with brown paper spines and paper spine labels [once pink, now faded to buff]. Complete with both half-titles, all the endpapers, and the terminal blank in Volume One. There is some rubbing to the joints and wear to the spine ends, most pronounced at the foot of Volume Two where there is loss of half an inch or so of paper. Still, this is a remarkable set. The joints and hinges are sound, and the labels have only minor chipping, with the loss of perhaps three letters on each. Internally, apart from some light foxing to the endpapers, the books are exceptionally clean and entirely unmarked. Pride and Prejudice is Austen's masterpiece, and one of the most enduringly popular novels in the English language. This edition was the third and last by the original publisher following the three-volume first and second editions of 1813. No new edition would appear until 1832. In his extensive Austen bibliography, David Gilson located only two copies of this edition in the original boards, one in the collection of fellow Austen bibliographer Sir Geoffrey Keynes, and another belonging to John Sparrow, the honorary president of the Oxford Society of Bibliophiles. Copies of any of the Egerton editions of Pride and Prejudice surviving in original condition are extremely rare. Gilson A5. Bookseller Inventory # 000130
