About this Item: Printed for T. Egerton, 1817. 2 vols., bound without half-titles or terminal blanks, some foxing, water-staining in the lower outer quarter of the seconf half of vol. ii, tiny hole in B8 in vol. i between lines 7 and 8 (no loss of text), pp.[ii], 289, [1]; [ii], 311, 12mo, contemporary half calf, flat spines gilt in compartments, neat repairs to joints, upper compartment of spine of vol. i renewed, new lettering pieces, early initials scrawled in a thin pen at head of title-pages, good. The publishing history of this edition is not known. Jane Austen 'was clearly not consulted (having sold the copyright) and no allusion to this edition has been traced in her surviving letters; it is not apparent whether A5 [i.e. this edition] was in fact issued before or after the author's death [on July 18th, 1817]. Sales may not have been rapid; two copies have been seen in what appear to be later remainder cloth bindings' (Gilson). 'The chapters have been renumbered in this edition to suit the division into two volumes [as opposed to the three of the first two editions], and these new numbers have been reproduced in most later reprints' (Keynes). (Gilson A5; Keynes 5). Seller Inventory # 56007

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # G1553

About this Item: T. Egerton, London, 1813. Second edition. 12mo. Three volumes. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spine git with leather lettering pieces (two perished, one with partial loss). Half-title are not present. The second edition is scarcer than the first. According to Gilson, the publishing history is rather obscure ("The size of the edition is not known). However, it is know that the second edition was entirely reset, resulting in occasional variations with the page as well as spelling and punctuation and wording (Gilson A4 has a list of alterations). Covers and spines scuffed with some splitting along extremities, fore-edges slightly bumped in areas, joints strengthened. There is scattered light foxing and neat contemporary ownership inscriptions on title-page of each volume. Seller Inventory # 1949

About this Item: London: Printed for the Author by C Roworth and Published by T Egerton: Second edition, 1813. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 2nd Edition. 3 volumes, 12mo., ([ii], 306pp.) + ([ii], 278pp.) + ([ii], 294pp.), lacking half-titles, some light occasional scattered spotting, bound in very good quality twentieth century white pigskin leather bindings with contrasting fine dark green morocco leather title labels to spines which are also gilt ruled in compartments. A lovely uncomplicated set in a fine binding all contained in purpose-made slipcase. (Gilson, A2). In 1811, Thomas Egerton of the Military Library publishing house in London accepted the manuscript for publication, in three volumes. Austen paid for the book to be published and paid the publisher a commission on sales. The cost of publication was more than a third of Austen's annual household income of £460. She made a profit of £140 on the first edition, which sold all 750 printed copies by July 1813. A second edition was advertised in October 1813. The story revolves around Elinor and Marianne, two daughters of Mr. Dashwood by his second wife. They have a younger sister, Margaret, and an older half-brother named John. When their father dies, the family estate passes to John, and the Dashwood women are left in reduced circumstances. The novel follows the Dashwood sisters to their new home, a cottage on a distant relative's property, where they experience both romance and heartbreak. The contrast between the sisters' characters is eventually resolved as they each find love and lasting happiness. Through the events in the novel, Elinor and Marianne find a balance between sense (or pure logic) and sensibility (or pure emotion) in life and love. Seller Inventory # 3434

About this Item: London: for T. Egerton, 1813, 1813. 3 volumes, duodecimo (176 x 107 mm). Rebound to style in black straight-grain calf, spines lettered and ruled in gilt, decorations to spine stamped in blind, marbled paper sides, red speckled edges. With pale brown quarter morocco solander box. Ownership inscription to head of title page of vol. III. Faint scattered foxing to text, skilful repair to closed tear to fore edge of pp. 223–4 in vol. III. An excellent copy. With half-titles. Second edition of Austen's second full-length novel. Pride and Prejudice was first published in January 1813, the second edition is believed to have been published in October. It was begun in August 1796, when Jane Austen was the same age as her heroine, and finished in August 1797. It was originally offered under the title "First Impressions" by her father to Thomas Cadell on 1 November 1797 as a novel in three volumes "about the length of Miss Burney's Evelina"; however Cadell declined without asking to see the manuscript. The work was revised in 1809–10 following the success of Sense and Sensibility, by which time the first choice of title had been used elsewhere. Pride and Prejudice became the runaway success of Austen's lifetime editions and remains the most popular of her books. Gilson A4. Seller Inventory # 120274

About this Item: 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'.

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # 32298

About this Item: Printed for T. Egerton, Military Library, Whitehall, London, 1817. 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. Book. Seller Inventory # 000130

About this Item: T. Egerton, London, 1811. 3/4 morocco. Condition: fine. First 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.
