About this Item: Richard Bentley, London, 1837. Half-Leather. Condition: Fair. Pickering, Greatbatch (illustrator). A fair copy of Jane Austen's classic work in contemporary binding. Sense and Sensibility, first published in 1811, was reprinted by Bentley as part of his Standard Novels series in 1833. This is an early reissue from that series, printed in 1837, but retaining the engraved frontispiece and vignette title page from the original 1833 version. With black and white frontispiece and vignette title page, additional title page, Memoir of Miss Austen, and text. The binding is half morocco which is very worn at the corners, edges and joints, although there is currently no splitting and the book is sound. The marbling to the back board is quite scuffed. Endpapers and page edges with matching marbling. Internally there is a lot of staining to the frontispiece and the vignette title page, and slight staining to the letterpress title - suggesting that the book might have got wet. There is occasional light staining or marking elsewhere in the book, but the text is generally clean. The paper is toned. There is a small ? burn in the middle of text page 299 which has caused a small hole and some paper damage. There is very small loss of text to p299, and little impact on p300. The damage has been repaired with archive paper repair tape. Seller Inventory # 032534

About this Item: Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, London, 1837. Complete with the general series title, the illustrated frontispiece, and the engraved second title-page. The printed title and the general series title are both dated 1837. The engraved second title-page, as in all copies as per Gilson, is undated. Publisher's original reddish-brown cloth, stamped in gilt and blind. There is chipping to the spine ends, more so to the head than the foot, and a couple of other stray scuff marks and spots of wear. The cloth along the top two inches of the rear joint is worn through. The endpapers at the front are white while those at the back are yellow, but both are seemingly original. Internally, there is some spotting to the frontispiece and engraved second title-page, a small bookplate on the front pastedown, and some discoloration to the rear endpapers, else the book is quite clean. Preceded only by an 1833 Bentley printing, the First American Edition of 1832, and the First and Second English Editions of 1811 and 1813. According to Gilson, few of these Bentley reprints "survive in libraries, and even fewer in original condition." The only copy of this printing in original cloth recorded by Gilson in his bibliography was his own. A Good Copy, and quite scarce. Gilson D7. Book. Seller Inventory # 000148

About this Item: 1813. A Novel. In Three Volumes. By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice." The Second Edition. London: printed for the Author, by C. Roworth. and published by T. Egerton, 1813. Original light reddish-brown muslin cloth with printed spine labels. "Second Edition" of Jane Austen's first published work, which like the first edition ("By a Lady," two years earlier in 1811), was published at her own expense. It took two years for the first edition to sell out, but in 1813 it was helped out by the popularity of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE -- with the result that the second edition of each was published in October 1813. "The text is believed to have been revised by the author; there are some major differences. and many minor changes" [Gilson] -- thus this second edition constitutes the "definitive edition," i.e. the text the way the author wanted it at the time of her death in 1817. This second edition was still being advertised by Egerton in November 1815 -- at which time Egerton was advertising a "New Edition" of this novel -- but there wasn't one; Egerton was instead being a bit "creative" in trying to unload his unsold copies, inasmuch as the author was then quitting him for the publisher John Murray. Austen received a S&S royalty payment from Egerton as late as March 1817 (she died four months later), but there was no further printing of SENSE AND SENSIBILITY until 1833, when Bentley included the novel in his series of Standard Novels.~The primary binding for these three volumes is blue-grey paper-covered boards, with printed labels that differ very slightly from those of the first edition (-- see examples in Gilson). Regarding this "second edition" Gilson states that "Copies in original boards appear for sale only very rarely," citing only two such copies in 1930 and "no record of sales of copies in original boards in recent years." This set is certainly in its original binding, and has those precise labels, but is in a light muslin cloth that is a good example of the English binding style adopted in the late 1820s and early 1830s. Since this clearly is these sheets' first binding-up, our opinion is that this constitutes a publisher's remainder binding from those first years of cloth bindings: undoubtedly there were still some sets of sheets not yet bound up after all those years, and whatever publisher then owned them wanted them gone before the arrival of some new edition (Bentley's) onto the market. So: this set is not in the primary binding of paper-covered boards with labels, but it IS in its original publisher's binding of some years later (with those same labels) -- far more desirable than volumes which were simply rebound by some owner.~Condition: First and foremost, the edges of the leaves of these volumes remain uncut (untrimmed) -- further bolstering the fact that this is the original binding-up. All three half-titles are present; the only leaf lacking (verified by a Quaritch cataloguer some time back) is the final blank leaf in Vol I. There is minor wear at the spine ends, but without any sort of repair there; the spines are a little faded (as one would expect with this color), and the original spine labels have slight edge-wear not affecting lettering. The Vol I endpapers have a thin strip of matching paper at the gutters; the endpapers in the other two volumes have only minor cracking. Glued to the Vol I front endpaper are a couple of old catalogue descriptions of other copies. For volumes still in their original binding some 190 years after the leaves were first bound up, this is remarkable condition. Gilson A2. Housed in a custom clamshell case with leather labels. Provenance: Vol I bookplate of Augustine Birrell (1850-1933), the barrister, politician, and author -- who became Chief Secretary for Ireland for the period 1907-1916 (in which post he was praised for enabling tenant farmers to own their property, and for extending university education for Catholics, but he resigned following the Easter Rising).

About this Item: Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, London, 1833. Together, Five Austen Novels in Four Volumes. The FIRST ONE-VOLUME EDITION, and the FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION [with a frontispiece illustration and a smaller vignette on the engraved title] of each book. This has also been called the First Collected Edition of Austen's works but it is more accurately the First Uniform Edition as each volume was individually issued, between December of 1832 and April of 1833, as part of Bentley's Standard Novel series, numbered 23, 27, 28, and 30 respectively. Only Emma, number 25 in the series is absent here to complete the canon. In October of 1833, Bentley reissued the novels, bound in green cloth with white labels, and sequentially renumbered one through five. Properly considered, this Later Issue would be the First Collected Edition. All four volumes offered here are FIRST PRINTINGS [with the general, engraved, and regular title-pages uniformly dated 1833], FIRST ISSUES [with plain white endpapers], and in Bentley's FIRST BINDING of plum cloth with black spine labels. The lower label of Mansfield Park is absent, and there's some chipping to the labels on Pride and Prejudice, with loss of only the final D in Standard on the lower label. There's some light bubbling to the cloth on Sense and Sensibility, and the ink signature of Jos Pratt in the top right corner of the front board. This is Colonel Joseph Pratt, master of Cabra Castle in Ireland. His signature, as Colonel, Jos, or Joseph Pratt, is present on the front pastedown and/or title-page of Sense and Sensibility and Northanger Abbey/Persuasion. The ink signature of his son and heir, Mervyn Pratt, dated 1863 [the year that Joseph died and Mervyn became master of the castle] is present in "Mansfield Park" and Pride and Prejudice. Additionally, Cabra Castle is written in ink on the front pastedown of each book, apparently in the elder Pratt's hand. As is always the case, the original plum cloth has faded to tan on the spines and some of the boards, but there is virtually NO WEAR to the cloth. Internally, there's some minor offsetting from some of the frontispieces else the books are in near fine condition, and are extremely scarce thus. Published in December of 1832, this is only the THIRD EDITION of Sense and Sensibility, following the first two British editions published by Egerton, and preceding the 1833 First American Edition. It is the SECOND BRITISH EDITION [and THIRD EDITION overall] of Northanger Abbey and Persausaion, preceded only by the 1818 First Edition, and the separate 1832 Carey and Lea Editions of the two titles. It is the FOURTH EDITION of Mansfield Park, preceded only by the 1814 First and 1816 Second Edition, and the American First Edition, published in 1832. And it is the FIFTH EDITION of Pride and Prejudice, published closely on the heels of the American First Edition of 1833, and preceded only by the First, Second, and Third British Editions, published by Egerton between 1814 and 1817. Michael Sadleir in "XIX Fiction" notes that these Austen titles are some of the rarest in the Bentley Standard Novel library and Austen bibliographer David Gilson says that copies in the orignal cloth are "uncommon, particularly so those in good condition." Here are four remarkable survivors, in exceptional matching condition. Gilson D1, D3, D4, D5. Book. Seller Inventory # 000082

About this Item: London: Richard Bentley, 1833, 1833. 5 volumes, octavo (158 x 98 mm). Contemporary green straight-grain morocco, neatly rebacked to style, titles to spines gilt, gilt in compartments, double gilt rules to sides with blindstamped panels of a lotus-and-palmette roll, gilt roll tool turn-ins, green endpapers, edges gilt. A few slight scuffs to covers, edges a little rubbed, customary touch of foxing to engravings, light foxing to contents, bound without the half-titles. A very attractive set. Engraved vignette titles and frontispieces by William Greatbach after Ferdinand Pickering. First collected edition, in a pretty contemporary binding. In 183233 Richard Bentley bought the copyright of Pride and Prejudice from the executors of Thomas Egerton and of the remaining novels from Henry and Cassandra Austen. Austen's novels had not been reissued since 1818 so these printings published by the enterprising Bentley in his Standard Novels series constitute early editions: Sense and Sensibility, third edition (pre-dating the first American by a few months); Pride and Prejudice, fourth edition; Mansfield Park, third edition; Emma, second edition (omitting the dedication to the Prince Regent included in the first edition); Northanger Abbey/Persuasion, second edition. These are also the first English editions to be illustrated. The very first Austen illustration appeared in a French translation of Persuasion (entitled La Famille Elliot) with a frontispiece by Delvaux after Chasselat (Paris: A. Bertrand, 1821). The Bentley illustrations, by the obscure Ferdinand Pickering, played an integral part in the reception of Austen's novels; according to one Austen scholar, they "promoted a sense that her novels were best understood as familial, female focused, and sensational. For decades, these illustrations would have served to steer readers away from the conclusion that Austen's fiction ought to be understood as social, comic, or didactic" (Davoney Looser, The Making of Jane Austen, 2017, p. 20). Complete sets in such an attractive contemporary binding are decidedly uncommon. Gilson D15; Sadleir 3735a. Seller Inventory # 126483
