NORTHANGER ABBEY: and PERSUASION. By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice," "Mansfield Park," &c. With a biographical notice of the Author
John Murray. London. 1818. John Murray. London. 1818. FIRST EDITION. Four volumes. 12mo. (7.3 x 4.3 inches). All Half titles present. Skilfully rebound to style in dark blue half calf, smooth spines, with multiple ruled lines, the compartments lettered and decorated in gilt. Marbled paper on boards. Neat previous owners name on the top of the title pages to the first three volumes. One small closed tear, without loss, has been neatly repaired to the top inner corner of the title page in volume one. Some occasional mild spotting to a few gatherings but generally a very good, tall, copy with good wide margins. An attractive set of the First edition of Jane Austen's final published work, pairing her last completed novel with the light-spirited satire which was probably the first full-length novel she wrote. Her brother Henry's biographical notice, dated 13 December 1817, though generally reckoned to be too lavish with unqualified praise, is the first acknowledgement in print of Jane Austen as the author of her six novels.
