The occurrence of italics in the narration, common to both editions, has a similar effect, as when Mrs Price’s treatment of Susan is recalled: ‘The blind fondness which was for ever producing evil around her, she had never known’ (vol. 3, ch. 9). ’ In neither of these instances are the italics necessary to the sense; they are the transcription of a vivacious, energetic authorial voice. The presence of italics in Mansfield Park is thus an indication of that ‘acoustic trace’ which Sutherland has identified as characterising the 1814 edition, but such instances are present in both texts.

Nevertheless, Murray’s adoption of Austen is an important moment in the history of her novels and their reputation. His agreeing to republish Mansfield Park in 1816 has special and perhaps under-appreciated significance. It suggests not only Jane Austen’s valuation of her novel, but the confidence that it might be sold, not just to circulating libraries, but to private buyers.
