Lot Details

Lot 229
AUSTEN, JANE Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, by the author of "Pride and Prejudice," "Mansfield Park," &c.
London: John Murray, 1818. First edition. Four volumes in period half-calf, marbled boards. 6 7/8 x 4 inches (175 x 10 cm); xxiv, 300 pp.; [4], 331, [1] pp.; [2], 280 pp.; [2], 308 pp., half-title in the second volume only. Bindings severely worn, detached boards taped to spines, terminal leaf in the second volume detached with tears to the gutter margin and frayed with tears into text, some spotting and toning but generally clean, in all a good candidate for restoration.
Posthumously published (though the first of Austen's novels to be fully prepared for publication), Northanger Abbey is remarkable for the character of Catherine Morland, an enthusiastic reader of Gothic novels.


C Estate of Frances "Peggy" Brooks
