Sense and Sensibility

By Austen, Jane




Sense and Sensibility is a novel by the English novelist Jane Austen. Published in 1811, it was Austen's first published novel, which she wrote under the pseudonym "A Lady".

When their father dies, the family estate passes to John, and the Dashwood women are left in reduced circumstances.

Sense and Sensibility.

AUSTEN, Jane.

London: Richard Bentley,, 1833 [but 1832]. Octavo (160 x 102 mm). Contemporary green quarter calf, marbled paper boards, titles to spine in gilt, raised bands tooled in gilt, compartments blocked in blind, edges speckled red. Engraved vignette title and frontispiece by William Greatbach after Ferdinand Pickering (tissue-guards intact). Bookticket of chemist J. K. Higgins over ownership inscription to front pastedown. With the bookplate of actress Hilda Moore to the front free endpaper. Spine toned, wear to extremities, a couple of scuffs to leather, rubbing to sides, light foxing to contents; a very good copy. First Bentley edition in an uncommon contemporary binding. This is the third edition overall (pre-dating the first American by a few months), and the first English edition to be illustrated. In 1832-3 Richard Bentley bought the copyright to all Austen's novels, which had not been reissued since 1818, to include them in his Standard Novels series, of which this is no. XXIII. 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).

Austen, Jane

Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1864/1870. Tauchnitz Edition. Hardcover. Small octavo, 456 pages; VG; bound in 3/4 brown calf, paneled spine with gilt lettering, burgundy label with gilt lettering; marbled boards; mild wear and rubbing to boards; mild age-toning to pages; Collection of British Authors Volume 735 and 1112; Sense and Sensibility dated 1864, lacking Emma, Pride and Prejudice dated 1870, with Emma listed. Since Emma wasn't published by Tauchnitz until 1877, and this copy has Emma listed under 'by the same author,' Pride and Prejudice was printed after.; text in English; shelved case 2. Tauchnitz was the name of a family of German printers and publishers. They published English language literature for distribution on the European continent outside Great Britain, including initial serial publications of novels by Charles Dickens. Bernhard started the Collection of British and American Authors in 1841, a reprint series familiar to anglophone travellers on the continent of Europe. These inexpensive paperbound editions, a direct precursor to mass-market paperbacks, were begun in 1841, and eventually ran to over 5,000 volumes. [wikipedia]. Shelved Dupont Bookstore.

London : George Allen, 1899 A good to very good copy of the first edition of Sense and Sensibility with Chris Hammond illustrations, in the original decorative cloth binding.

It is cocked to the front (as is common with these bindings). The back board has slight marking with more noticeable wear to the corners. All page edges gilt.
