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: 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 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'.
