    [Frances Burney]. Camilla: or, A Picture of Youth. London: T. Payne, [et al], 1796. First edition. Jane Austen's name appears on the List of Subscribers (perhaps the first time her name appeared in print).

    More Information:

    Five twelvemo volumes. Contemporary full brown levant morocco, boards triple-ruled in gilt, decoratively stamped in gilt, gilt brown and green gilt morocco lettering labels, gilt board edges, pink-coated endleaves. Some wear and soiling to bindings, spine of volume II damaged near headcap, each volume with neat ownership signature on front blank. Still, a very good set. Austen's name ("Miss J. Austen, Steventon") appears on page x, and may, in fact, be the first time her name appeared in print, and may be the only time her name appeared in print in her lifetime (she wrote her novels anonymously).
