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 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: London: John Murray, 1818. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Four volumes. First edition, first printing. Association copy, previously owned by Louisa Taylor of Bifrons, Kent, with her ownership inscription to the title page of Volume II. Finely bound in blue calf and blue marbled boards, with contrasting maroon title labels to the spines, lettered in gilt, spines decorated in gilt, boards decorated in blind, blue marbled endpapers. Very good, with rubbing to the boards and edges, external hinges of spines reinforced, pages slightly trimmed, former owner Elizabeth Eliot's pencil inscriptions to front endpapers, a few faint and scattered spots to the otherwise fresh pages. A clean and beautiful copy, with an excellent provenance. Housed in a custom navy clamshell box with morocco spine, five raised bands, lettered in gilt. Gilson A9. This copy of Northanger Abbey was previously owned by Louisa Taylor, wife of Edward Taylor, an elected Member of Parliament for Canterbury from 1807-1812 and Jane Austen's first romantic interest. Austen first met Edward Taylor in 1794 while visiting her brother Edward Austen at Rowling, his home near Canterbury. In 1796, she visited Bifrons, the Taylor family's estate, and wrote to her sister Cassandra about "Him, on whom I once fondly doated." In subsequent letters, Austen remarked on Taylor's "beautiful dark eyes," and, although their romance developed little past her infatuation, Taylor clearly left a lasting impression on Austen. Edward Taylor married Louisa Taylor (née Beckington) of Kent in 1802. (Jane Austen the Woman: Some Biographical Insights, George Holbert Tucker, 1994.) Published together posthumously, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion are, interestingly enough, Austen's first and last novels, both of which are set in Bath. Northanger Abbey, a satire featuring a young woman with a penchant for Gothic novels, was Austen's first completed work and was originally to be published under the title Susan. In contrast, Persuasion, the story of two sweethearts' second chance at love, was a mature work, which Austen began shortly after completing Emma (1815). Signed. Bookseller Inventory # JA012

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: 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

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: London: Printed for the Author, by C. Roworth and published by T. Egerton 1813., 1813. 3 vols., 12mo., with the half titles, but wanting the terminal blanks; a very good copy in contemporary half red morocco and marbled boards, rubbed, edges slightly worn.Second edition, revised by the author. The first edition had sold out in July 1813, and on 25 September Austen wrote to her brother Francis that 'There is to be a 2d Edition of S. & S. Egerton advises it'. Apparently it was published on the same terms as the first edition, at the expense of the author; again there was a profit, but the second edition sold slowly, despite a title-page that could now announce 'By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice"' instead of 'By a Lady'. Austen was still receiving small payments as late as 1817.In revising the novel Austen made a number of minor changes. The most conspicuous alteration comes in volume I, chapter XIII, where one short paragraph is omitted following the disclosure that Miss Williams was the Colonel's natural daughter: 'Lady Middleton's delicacy was shocked; and in order to banish so improper a subject as the mention of a natural daughter, she actually took the trouble of saying something herself about the weather' (I, 155 in the first edition; I, 150 in the second). The second edition also introduces some errors.Keynes 2; Gilson A2. Language: English. Bookseller Inventory # G1553

Item Description: Oxford: Printed for the author and sold by C. S. Rann [others in later parts], 1789–90, 1789. Octavo (208 x 125 mm) in 60 parts, with printed part-titles for each. Contemporary pale tan polished calf, spine divided in 6 compartments by raised bands, red morocco label, other compartments gilt with central flower tools. Contemporary ownership inscription of R. Ekins at head of front free endpaper. Joints starting, some light chipping and wear, part-title for No. 2 mounted on a stub, Q1 with small marginal tear in corner with loss, marginal worming to a few leaves, a very good copy. First edition, possibly Jane Austen's first appearance in print. This scarce periodical was written by James and Henry Austen while they were at Oxford. Some scholars have suggested that in issue number 9, the letter signed "Sophia Sentiment" was the work of their sister Jane when she was 14. Although Gilson does not include this work in his Bibliography, there is a strong case that the work was written by Jane Austen. According to the British Library, "critics such as Paula Byrne have noted that there are various correspondences between the letter and Jane Austen's juvenilia. Her early, epistolary novel Love and Freindship [sic], for example, has two heroines quite as shallow as Sophia. But other critics, such as Kathryn Sutherland and Claire Tomalin, find it unlikely that Austen would have written a letter so critical of women's reading choices. They suggest that Sophia Sentiment's letter was probably written by one of Austen's brothers." Even if "Sophia Sentiment" cannot be definitively linked with Jane Austen, the experience her brothers had in printing this work no doubt had some influence on her. Gilson suggests that it was through the publication of The Loiterer that she became acquainted with Egerton of Whitehall (who were the London distributors of this work from the fifth number on) who later published her Sense and Sensibility. See Sir Zachary Cope, "Who was Sophia Sentiment? Was she Jane Austen," Book Collector 15 (1996) pp. 143-151, A.W. Litz, "The Loiterer: a reflection of Jane Austen's early environment", Review of English Studies 12 (1961) pp.251-261. Bookseller Inventory # 102817
