Emma: a Novel, 3 vol., first edition, half titles, author's name supplied in ink on title of volume one, bookplate of Geoffrey Ecroyd, booklabel of Austin Smith, red crushed morocco by Rivière, inner gilt dentelles, spines gilt [Gilson A8; Keynes 8; Sadleir 62d], 12mo, John Murray, 1816


  • "The collation of the first volume of Emma is peculiar in that the first sheet consisted only of the title-page and the dedication to the Price Regent, while the half-title was printed on the last leaf, which would otherwise have been blank. If the binder has omitted to transfer the half-title to the beginning of the volume, it will appear, at first sight, to be imperfect" (Keynes). In this copy the half-title is in its correct position.
