    Definition "unreserve" in this content


    The following is part of the novel "Emma" by Jane Austen:

    but the intercourse of the last seven years, the equal footing and perfect unreserve which had soon followed Isabella's marriage on their being left to each other, was yet a dearer, tenderer recollection.

    Would somebody elaborate the meaning of "unreserve" here.
