On May 9, 1814, Mansfield Park by the “Author of ‘Sense and Sensibility’ and ‘Pride and Prejudice’” was advertised in The Star. It was published in three volumes and sold for 18 shillings. Mansfield Park was the third of Jane Austen’s novels to be published. According to a memorandum by her sister Cassandra, she began writing it sometime about February 1811 and finished it soon after June 1813. Then, in May 1814, it was published by Thomas Egerton, who had previously published Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. A second edition was published in 1816 by John Murray, also the publisher of Jane Austen’s Emma. Now, the two hundredth anniversary of Mansfield Park’s first publication is being celebrated. As Mansfield Park is my favorite novel, I am marking the occasion by posting quotations, trivia, reviews, and so on, on my other blog, Mansfield Park.
