From Marilyn Butler’s Introduction to EMMA

Jane Austen was paid 300 GBP for Emma by the publisher, John Murray.  The title-page states only that it is ‘By the Author of Pride and Prejudice, etc. etc.’ An additional preliminary page gives the dedication to the Prince Regent ‘by his Royal Highness’s dutiful and obedient servant, the Author.’ The date is given as 1816 . . .  Two thousand copies were printed and 1,250 sold in the first year . . .
