AUSTEN, JANE. Pride and Prejudice: A Novel. In Three Volumes. By the Author of "Sense and Sensibility." 3 volumes. Lacking half-titles. 12mo, 19th century 1/2 brown morocco over marbled boards, spines ruled and lettered in gilt, light rubbing to spine tips and corners; foxing chiefly to prelims and endleaves. The uncommon second edition. According to Gilson, the publishing history is murky ("The size of the edition is not known"), but is thought to have been published in October, eight months after it originally appeared. It does differ from the first edition in that it is entirely reset, resulting in occasional variations within the page. In addition, there are numerous small changes to spelling and punctuation and, occasionally, a change in wording (see Gilson A4 for list of alterations.); Chapman 4. London: Printed for T. Egerton, 1813
