Descripción

8vo., First Edition thus, free endpapers browned; original grey boards, ivory cloth back, backstrip with printed paper label, uncut, and largely unopened, a very good, bright, clean copy. This is also the first dedicated publication of Austen's text in book form, the text having been printed first in Austen-Leigh's 'Memoir' of 1871. Arguably the greatest of all Austen's editors, R W Chapman (in this case anonymous) provides a preface in which he describes the MS and sketches its history. On p.121 is quoted (from the 'Memoir' of 1871) the pasage revealing Austen's intentions for the completion of the story. Chapman's extensive notes give erasures and alterations in the MS, a suppressed passage, and errors in the 1871 text. Scarce. Chapman 26 (1927); Gilson F10; Keynes 180. N° de ref. de la librería 16857
