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: Frank S. Holby, New York, 1906. Leather. Condition: Very Good Set. Illustrated (illustrator). Limited. Octavo, Gilt lettered and decorated leather spines. Marbled paper covered boards. Deckled outside edges. Top edges gilt. Some minor edge scuffs and three volumes have some light chipping to spine ends. Otherwise a fabulous set of this wonderful author's complete writings, including letters. This is the Chawton Edition and is numbered 491of 1250 in a limited edition. Over 4000 pages. Very few sets were bound in leather like this set. Most were cloth with paper spine labels. Color frontispiece in each volume by Charles Edmund Brock and Henry Matthew Brock. Edited by R. Brimley Johnson with an introduction by Professor William Lyon Phelps, Ph. D. Includes Austen's novels Sense and Sensibility;Pride and Prejudice; Mansfield Park; Emma; Northanger Abbey; and Persuasion as well as her short works and letters. Jane Austen December 16,1775 - July 18, 1817 was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature. Her realism, biting irony and social commentary as well as her acclaimed plots have gained her historical importance among scholars and critics. Austen's works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th century realism. Her plots, though fundamentally comic, highlight the dependence of women on marriage to secure social standing and economic security. Her works, though usually popular, were first published anonymously and brought her little personal fame and only a few positive reviews during her lifetime. Seller Inventory # 025564

About this Item: Boston Roberts Brothers 1892, 1892. 12 volumes. First of this Deluxe Edition, Limited to 250 copies only. Illustrated with engraved frontispiece illustrations to each volume. 8vo, very handsomely bound for Estes & Lauriat at the time of publication in three-quarter rich brown crushed morocco over fine marbled boards, the spines with wide raised bands gilt ruled and tooled, compartments lettered in gilt and decorated with floral device gilt at the foot, marbled end-leaves to match the covers of green, gold and gray and tan, top edge gilt. A very handsome set in very pleasing condition. Beautifully preserved, bright, fresh and clean with only very minimal evidence of age. A VERY HANDSOME SET INDEED, WITH FINE BINDINGS AND DELIGHTFUL ENGRAVED FRONTISPIECES. An attractive and authoritative set of Austen's novels and letters. This edition printed the novels in the order of their publication and from the last editions revised by the author. Originally, SENSE AND SENSIBILITY appeared in 1811, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE in 1813, MANSFIELD PARK in 1814, EMMA in 1815, and NORTHANGER ABBEY and PERSUASION, LADY SUSAN, THE WATSONS and THE LETTERS appeared posthumously in 1818, 1871 and 1884. Here we find them all perfectly united in this attractively bound set. "Recognition came to Miss Austen slowly. But she is now firmly established as an English classic.Miss Austen had always her panegyrists among the best intellects-such as Coleridge, Tennyson,Macaulay, Scott, Sydney Smith, Disraeli and Archbishop Whitely, the last of whom may be said to have been her discoverer. Macaulay, whose adoration of Miss Austen’s genius was almost idolatrous, considered MANSFIELD PARK her greatest feat; but many critics give the palm to EMMA. Disraeli read PRIDE AND PREJUDICE seventeen times. Scott’s testimony is often quoted: ‘That young lady had a talent for describing the involvements, feelings and characters of ordinary life which is to me the most wonderful I have ever met with. The big bow-wow I can do myself like any one going; but the exquisite touch which renders commonplace things and characters interesting from the truth of the description and the sentiment is denied to me.’" - EB.

Novels: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice,: Austen, Jane (The

About this Item: Richard Bentley & Son 1885, 1886, London, 1885. A New Edition. Handsomely bound by Riviere and Son (stamped) in quarter leather spines with raised bands and leather tips; with marble-paper covered boards. The spines are elaborately decorated and stamped in gold. Each spine bears two light green morocan leather labels stamped with "Jane Austen's Novels" and the title of each volume. Top edges gold as well. Very clean and tight throughout with marbled endpapers. This New Edition has the title page dates of 1885 (Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park); and 1886 (Emma, Sense and Sensibility, A Memoir of the Author). Each volume has an engraved frontispiece with tissue guard. A very solid and attractive set of Austen's novels, with uniform darkening to the leather spines and a touch of edgewear to the extremities and a few light scuff marks to the leather tips. A very charming set with the striking engravings, notably the portrait of Jane Austen in "A Memoir." Jane Austen (1775– 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 plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Her use of biting irony, along with her realism and social commentary, have earned her acclaim among critics and scholars. With the publications of Sense and Sensibility(1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813),Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began another, eventually titled Sanditon, but died before its completion. She also left behind three volumes of juvenile writings in manuscript and another unfinished novel, The Watsons. Her six full-length novels have rarely been out of print, although they were published anonymously and brought her moderate success and little fame during her lifetime. A significant transition in her posthumous reputation occurred in 1833, when her novels were republished in Richard Bentley's Standard Novels series, illustrated by Ferdinand Pickering, and sold as a set. They gradually gained wider acclaim and popular readership. In 1869, fifty-two years after her death, her nephew's publication of A Memoir of Jane Austen introduced a compelling version of her writing career and supposedly uneventful life to an eager audience.

BACKGROUND: •Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British land gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. •Pride and Prejudice is a romantic novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story charts the emotional development of the protagonist, Elizabeth Bennet, who learns the error of making hasty judgments and comes to appreciate the difference between the superficial and the essential. The comedy of the writing lies in the depiction of manners, education, marriage, and money during the British Regency period. CONDITION:•Conditions are Good+/Very Good.

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: Richard Bentley & Son 1885, 1886, London, 1885. A New Edition. Handsomely bound by Riviere and Son (stamped) in quarter leather spines with raised bands and leather tips; with marble-paper covered boards. The spines are elaborately decorated and stamped in gold. Each spine bears two red morocan leather labels stamped with "Jane Austen's Novels" and the title of each volume. Top edges gold as well. Very clean and tight throughout with marbled endpapers. This New Edition has the title page dates of 1885 (Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park); and 1886 (Emma, Sense and Sensibility, A Memoir of the Author). Each volume has an engraved frontispiece with tissue guard. With the plain italic printed name of the previous owner on a small rectangle of white on the front paste-downs. A very solid and attractive set of Austen's novels, with uniform darkening to the leather spines, numerous scuff marks to the corners and edges of the leather tips; edge-rubbing, and a slight spine slant to two volumes. A charming set with the striking engravings, notably the portrait of Jane Austen in "A Memoir." Jane Austen (1775– 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 plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Her use of biting irony, along with her realism and social commentary, have earned her acclaim among critics and scholars. With the publications of Sense and Sensibility(1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813),Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began another, eventually titled Sanditon, but died before its completion. She also left behind three volumes of juvenile writings in manuscript and another unfinished novel, The Watsons. Her six full-length novels have rarely been out of print, although they were published anonymously and brought her moderate success and little fame during her lifetime. A significant transition in her posthumous reputation occurred in 1833, when her novels were republished in Richard Bentley's Standard Novels series, illustrated by Ferdinand Pickering, and sold as a set. They gradually gained wider acclaim and popular readership. In 1869, fifty-two years after her death, her nephew's publication of A Memoir of Jane Austen introduced a compelling version of her writing career and supposedly uneventful life to an eager audience.
