A Note of Interest:
“When Jane Austen wrote her first novel, a novel about the Bennet family of Longbourne, she called it FIRST IMPRESSIONS, but she couldn’t find a publisher. However, once SENSE & SENSIBILITY, Austen’s second novel, became a popular success, T. Egerton of Whitehall, the publisher of SENSE & SENSIBILITY, agreed to release FIRST IMPRESSIONS with a new name: PRIDE & PREJUDICE. In this early instance of successful branding, a novel called FIRST IMPRESSIONS went nowhere, but given a new title, PRIDE & PREJUDICE quickly became one of the great classics of Western literature.”
