Bindings on early editions
The bindings on early editions of Jane Austen’s works can have a huge effect on their value. Peter Harrington, the leading rare book shop in Britain, has now posted a video on the subject. In it Adam Douglas, a senior specialist in early literature at the store, introduces a selection of Jane Austen’s first editions and explains how the binding affects their value. You can watch the video here.
