Emma: the volumes

For the next three months of 2015, that is, February, March and April, JASACT plans to do a slow read of  Emma to celebrate the 200th anniversary of its publication. (Emma was published in December 2015, though the imprint date for the first edition is 1816). 

As most modern editions do not present the book with the original three-volume arrangement, here is a guide to the original volume structure:

  • Volume 1: Chapters 1-18
  • Volume 2: Chapters 19-36
  • Volume 3: Chapters 37-55

And here are two sites that provide the original publication structure – as well as e-texts of the novel and other interesting Jane Austen info:
