“Silly things do cease to be silly if they are done by sensible people in an impudent way.”

― Jane Austen, Emma

 

Jane Austen was one of the most popular English novelists of the early 19th-century, much in part to her works focusing on the women and social standing. She is best-remembered for ‘Sense and Sensibility’ and ‘Pride and Prejudice’, but works such as ‘Emma’ are equally as desirable to 21st-century readers.

 

Any edition of Jane Austen printed before 1850 is considered exceptionally rare. This Bentley printing of ‘Emma’ is no exception. In 1833, Bentley issued the popular novels of Austen that were originally published together in 1816 as ‘Standard Novels’. These works, including ‘Emma’, were illustrated by Ferdinand Pickering.
