¶ First edition of Fanny Burney's third novel and her most spectacular success in commercial terms. The list of subscribers includes leading society figures and dignitaries, alongside the bluestockings, surviving members of the Johnson circle like Bennet Langton and Hester Thrale, and fellow women writers Anne Radcliffe, Hannah More, Maria Edgeworth and Jane Austen, then an unknown 20-year-old. The author was paid £1,000 for the copyright and gained at least as much again from the subscription. The sale was even more rapid than it had been for Cecilia, with almost all the 4,000 copies disposed of by November 1796. The profits enabled the newly-married D'Arblays to build their own house, which they called Camilla Cottage. Rothschild 550.
