About this Item: London: Printed for J. Murray 1816., 1816. 3 vols., 12mo., bound without the half-titles and the terminal blank in vol. ii; very occasional light foxing; a very good copy in contemporary half calf and pink marbled boards, rubbed, joints worn, spines coming away; from the libraries of T. Hope (stamped label) and Linda Hannas, the historian of jigsaw puzzles, with her note calling attention to a dissected map at I, 33.Second edition, revised. This is the only one of Jane Austen's novels with textual revisions of any significance. She 'seems in general to have prepared the text for the first editions of her novels with the greatest care, so that they contain few misprints, and the alterations made in the later editions consist usually only of unimportant details' (Keynes, TLS, 30 August 1923). In Mansfield Park, however, there are a number of more substantial revisions of the nautical terminology, probably on advice from one of the sailor brothers, Francis or Charles.The passage in question (III, 150-1) concerns young Sam Price's first ship, The Thrush. For the ship 'was under weigh' (1814), we now read 'she had slipped her moorings and was coming out' (1816); for 'she lays just astern of the Endymion, with the Cleopatra to larboard', we read 'she lays close to the Endymion, between her and the Cleopatra, just to the eastward of the sheer hulk. "Ha! cried William, "that's just where I should have put her myself. It's the best birth at Spithead ."' [this last sentence entirely new text], and further slight changes in a similar vein.Egerton's poor printing of the first edition of Mansfield Park in 1814, his lack of expertise in marketing the book and unwillingness to risk another edition, as well as his behaviour over Pride and Prejudice – issuing a second edition without her knowledge – were all factors in Jane Austen's decision to entrust this second edition and her subsequent novels to Murray.Keynes 7; Gilson A7.

About this Item: London: John Murray, 1818. Hard Cover. 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. Seller Inventory # JA012

About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # 67001
