Mansfield Park

By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice."

AUSTEN, Jane

AUSTEN, Jane Mansfield Park By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice."

Murray, 1816.

Second edition. 12mo. Three volumes. Bound in contemporary green cloth, with red morocco spine labels. Lacking half-titles. A very good set, with a little wear to the boards and spine ends and short splits to a couple of the joints.

Written between 1811 and 1813, Mansfield Park was originally published by Thomas Egerton in 1814 in an edition of 1,250 copies, which sold through in six months, leaving the publisher of this second edition, John Murray to express "astonishment that so small an edition of such a work should have been sent into the world." That said, the print run of the second edition was smaller still, being of just 750 copies. The trade, as Gilson notes, "was not enthusiastic", with only 252 copies having been sold by January 1820, after which the edition was remaindered, the price dropping to 2s.6d.

PROVENANCE: I.A.Wedgwood (bookplates to each pastedown).

Gilson A7.
