As is well known, Jane Austen via James Stanier Clarke received a royal command to dedicate her next novel to the Prince Regent. Jane's then publisher John Murray advised her on suitable wording of the dedication to the Prince Regent which was to be included in that novel, Emma, and arranged for an early copy of the First Edition to be sent to the Prince Regent's library. This unique and important book has this past week been lent by the Royal Collections to Jane Austen's House Museum (JAHM) at Chawton and is now on public display there. If you are intending to visit the Jane Austen House House Museum this year, why not go soon and see this particular exhibit.
