Notes

First edition of Austen's third and longest novel. Mansfield Park was begun about the same time as Sense and Sensibility was accepted for publication and was published in May 1814 in an edition of 1,250 copies. The publisher John Murray later "expressed astonishment that so small an edition of such a work should have been sent into the world"; he took over publication of the second edition and of Austen's future novels.
