Français : Frontispice de l'édition d"Emma" de Jane Austen parue chez Macmillan. Il illustre un épisode du chapitre 4, quand Emma a l'occasion de voir à quoi ressemble Robert Martin, le jeune fermier amoureux de Harriet.English: Frontispiece for "Emma" by Jane Austen: Miss Woodhouse and Harriet met Mr. Martin as they were walking on the Donwell road. He was on foot, and after looking very respectfully at Emma, looked with most unfeigned satisfaction at her companion. Emma was not sorry to have such an opportunity of survey; and walking a few yards forward, while they talked together, soon made her quick eye sufficiently acquainted with Mr. Robert Martin.

Jane Austen (1775—1817), the world renowned English author, completed just six works during her time and yet manages to command a legion of fans around the world. Her timeless stories have been turned into a plethora of movies, television shows, and modern adaptations in addition to being translated into multiple languages to cross cultural boundaries. Today she remains as popular as ever and is revered as much as any literary figure in the history of the English language.
