Título: The Novels of Jane Austen. The Text based on...
Editorial: Oxford University Press, 
Año de publicación: 1944
8vo., Third Edition thus [Second Impression], with 3 frontispieces, 7 plates, 3 title-pages in facsimile and 4 full-page type-facsimiles; cloth, gilt back, uncut, a near fine copy. Chapman's masterly edition of the novels was first published in a limited edition of five volumes in 1923. It was the first based on carefully collated texts and the first to feature illustrations from contemporary sources. Demand far outstripped the limited audience and a 'second edition' (in reality a second printing on cheaper stock) was issued in 1926. A 'third edition' (as here) was published in 1933, but since it is produced from the original plates it is still technically a third printing. This third edition, several times re-issued, preserves the three-volume structure of the first edition of 1816, adding frontispieces to each volume together with the other plates and facsimiles, and Chapman's extensive notes and explanatory articles. Importantly the present text was not set up specifically for the 1923 edition but reprinted from the Oxford edition of 1912 (see Gilson E133). Gilson E150 (recording the five-volume edition).
