London: Richard Bentley & Son, 1883. [Literary Biography] FIFTH EDITION. Octavo (20 x 14cm), pp. x; 364. With a frontispiece engraving of Jane Austen. Publisher's green cloth with gilt titles to spine and blind decoration to boards. Brown-coated endpapers; all edges untrimmed. Light toning and spotting to edges. A central gathering slightly proud, with a few minor chips to some page edges. Very light wear to cloth, with a little fraying to head and tail of spine. Very good. Assembled by Austen's nephew and first published in 1870, this biography remains 'the only published record of Jane Austen's life by one who knew her.' This is essentially a reprint of the second edition, containing also the cancelled chapter of 'Persuasion,' fragments of 'Sanditon', as well as 'Lady Susan' and 'The Watsons.'. Item #56878
