    First Illustrated and One-Volume Editions

    Jane Austen. Sense and Sensibility [and] Emma. London: Richard Bentley, 1833.

    First illustrated and one-volume editions from the Bentley Standard Novels series, numbers 23 and 25. Two sixteenmo volumes. 331 and 435 pages respectively. Each volume contains an extra engraved title page and an engraved frontispiece.

    Contemporary half-leather over marbled boards with titles and rules stamped in gilt on the spine. Rubbing and wear at the spine ends and corners. Hinges just starting to crack though the binding is sound. Moderate foxing and toning to the preliminary and terminal pages, otherwise the contents remain tight and bright. Very good copies of two classic Jane Austen's novels.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
