Item Description: London: for T. Egerton, 1813, 1813. 3 volumes, duodecimo (184 x 110 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked, raised bands to spines, green and red morocco labels. Housed in a brown quarter morocco solander box. Minor wear to corners, slight surface wear to boards, joints cracked but firm, light spotting to text blocks; Volume I with short closed tear to top margin of p. 71 and fore margin of p. 103, Volume III with short closed tear to fore margin of p. 205 and top margin of p. 225. A very good set. With the half-titles in all three volumes. First edition. The second of her full-length novels, begun in August 1796, when Jane Austen was the same age as her heroine, and finished in August 1797, "First Impressions" was offered by her father to Thomas Cadell on 1 November 1797 as a novel in three volumes "about the length of Miss Burney's Evelina"; but Cadell declined without asking to see the manuscript. Revised in 180910 after the success of Sense and Sensibility, by which time the first choice of title had been used elsewhere, it became the runaway success of her lifetime editions and remains the most popular of her books.
