Example text

10 Le Faye, Family Record, p. 207. 12 Jane Austen would retain the copyright. In fact it seems likely that the Austens took a very active role in the novel’s publication process. Travelling together in the carriage from Chawton to London in early March, Jane and Henry read the fair copy of the novel – the manuscript ready for the printers. Then Egerton, following the usual practice of farming copy out to different printers, sent the first and the third volumes in Jane Austen’s fair copy to G. Sidney, of Northumberland Street, off the Strand, whom he had previously used for the second and third volumes of Pride and Prejudice, and the second volume to Charles Roworth of Bell Yard, Temple Bar.

Each volume was printed by a different firm, presumably to speed up the work. Roworth, whose name is prominently displayed as printer in the Quarterly Review, took the second volume, as he had in 1814, but with the benefit of that copy beside them, the compositors spaced the text rather more elegantly. It is worth noting, in view of the poor printing of both the first and third volumes by Sidney in 1814, that Murray, though farming it out to three different firms, volume 1 to Moyes, volume 2 to Roworth, and volume 3 to Davison, made no use of him.

Others may remember the scene in Clarissa in which the heroine is lured to betray herself by Lovelace, as Maria is by Henry, in front of a ‘garden door’. The allusion to A Sentimental Journey, though, is of a different order. The breaking into Maria’s speech – ‘as she spoke, and it was with eloquence’ – of a quotation from Sterne is unnerving in its unexpectedness. One effect of its eruption is to require or force the reader to supply a context that the context of the novel itself seems to assume.
