The George Allen published 1894 thru 1906 editions are the most desirable copies of Pride and Prejudice published other than the original 1813 three volume first edition by Egerton which brings 5 figures in today's market. A relative unknown illustrator Hugh Thompson was an Irish Illustrator born at Coleraine near Derry. he took the task of creating 160 line drawings to produce the first and still finest illustrated edition. The success of George Allens " PEACOCK EDITION " launched Thompson's career as as a first class and prominent illustrator who is best known for his pen-and-ink illustrations of works by authors Charles Dickens, and J. M. Barrie. In total, Thomson illustrated sixty-five books and contributed a large number of illustrations to magazines and other periodicals. When working on a new illustration, Thomson would research his subject in the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. He would often take detailed notes on costumes, furniture, old prints, and architectural records. His attention to detail can been seen in his sketchbooks, which include pages devoted to the changing styles of ladies and gentleman attire. Jane Austen born 16 December 1775 died 18 July 1817 was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's novels remained in obscurity until this 1894 first illustrated edition was published. 61 different publishers reprinted her titles up to 2010 before the explosion of computer generated reprint companies.

About this Item: London George Allen, 1894. First fully illustrated edition, one of 250 large paper copies 'printed for England and 25 copies for America'; 4to (250 x 168 mm); with the illustrations specially printed on China paper and laid down, a very few, minor marginal marks, browning to fore-edge, else fine; contemporary Venice style binding by J. Weidman of Vienna, the upper cover onlaid with intricate strapwork, enhanced and panelled in gilt, the rear cover blind-embossed with a decorative honeycomb motif, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, as published, rebacked preserving original tree calf spine, near-fine. The first edition of this title to include illustrations with the text since Bentley's edition (first published in 1833) only contained an illustrated frontispiece. This copy would appear to be unique in having such an elaborate and intricate binding by the Viennese binder; J. Weidman 'k.u.k. Kammerlieferant' (gilt embossed inside upper cover), which translates as 'Purveyor to the Imperial and Royal Chamber'. This indicates that Weidman held not only a Royal Warrant (k.u.k. Hoflieferant) but the higher warrant as personal suppliers to the Emperor and the Empress. An Imperial and Royal Warrant of Appointment during the Austro-Hungarian Empire was issued to vendors who supplied goods or services to the Austrian imperial court in Vienna and/or the Hungarian royal court in Budapest. The warrant was normally an official document, which enabled the supplier to advertise the fact and thus lend itself prestige. Suppliers continued to charge for their goods and services. The application process took years and was given only to those deemed of the highest quality to be worth to receive the honour upon personal approval of the monarch. Hugh Thomson (1860-1920) renowned illustrator, in pen and ink, of classic titles; he was born in Ireland where his skills as an illustrator were recognised while still a teenager. Consequently Thomson was trained by John Vinycomb, the head designer at Marcus Ward & Co., a prominent Belfast publishing house. He subsequently moved to England, working from 1883 for MacMillan & Co., illustrating all six of Jane Austen's novels and other literary classics. By 1900 he had become one of the most popular illustrators of his time. However, during the First World War there was less demand for his style of work and he took a job with the Board of Trade until his untimely death from heart disease. Seller Inventory # 99311
