    • Hello James – Lot 5 was the Pride and Prejudice 1st edition – it sold for $35,000 [includes buyer’s premium] – the other Austen lots were 50 – 54. I have added the final results in red on my post to include the buyer’s premium and the results of Lot 5 – I had signed on after Lot 5 sold and could not get the results until the auction was over.

      Sorry this was so confusing! – and thanks for stopping by and helping out…
