Sanditon, Lady Susan & The History of England by Jane Austen- small hardback (Macmillan Collector's Library Edition)
Sanditon, Lady Susan, & The History of England: The Juvenilia and Shorter Works of Jane Austen is a rare collection and a must for all Jane-ites. This edition features an introduction by Kathryn White.
Representing what Richard Church regarded as Jane Austen's literary work-basket, this collection contains not only her hilarious History of England, illustrated by her favourite sister Cassandra, but the unfinished Sanditon, the novel of her maturity on which she was working at her death, aged forty-two. Also included are the two epistolary novels, Lady Susan and Love and Friendship [sic], and other, shorter works: ‘The Watsons’, ‘Catharine’, ‘Lesley Castle’, ‘Evelyn’, ‘Frederic and Elfrida’, ‘Jack and Alice’, ‘Edgar and Emma’, ‘Henry and Eliza’ and ‘The Three Sisters’.
This elegant and diminutive edition is from the Macmillan Collector's Library collection. Beautifully produced with gilt edges, a ribbon marker, bespoke illustrated cover and real cloth binding, every Macmillan Collector’s Library hardback adheres to the same high production values. They're small enough to travel with and striking enough to take pride of place on your bookshelf. These much-loved literary classics also make the perfect gift.
Hardback, 504 pages.
