AUSTEN, Jane Northanger Abbey: And Persuasion. By the author of "Pride and Prejudice," "Mansfield-Park," &c. with a biographical notice of the author

Murray, 1817.

First edition. Four volumes. 8vo. Contemporary blue half calf, over grey boards. Complete with fly-title to "Biographical Notice of the Author" and all half-titles, bound after the title pages. A very good copy, with some wear to the spine ends and joints superficially refurbished. Some spotting to the preliminary leaves, but generally clean.

First edition of Jane Austen's final published work, pairing Northanger Abbey, probably the first full-length novel she wrote, with Persuasion, her last completed novel. Her brother Henry's biographical notice, dated 13 December 1817, is the first acknowledgement of Austen's authorship of her novels to appear in one of her works.
