Product Overview

Jane Austen collected her childhood writings into three manuscript notebooks, both as a record of her earliest work and for the convenience of reading aloud to her family and friends. Volume the First (as she entitled it) contains fourteen pieces - literary skits and family jokes - dating from about 1787, when she was eleven, to 1793. Amusing in themselves, they give us a direct picture of the lively literary and family milieu in which the novelists juvenilia was formed. This new edtion carries a Foreword by Lord David Cecil, a former president of the Jane Austen Society and Professor of English Literature at the University of Oxford. There is also a Publishers Preface by Brian Southam, author of Jane Austens Literary Manuscripts and other works on Jane Austen. *Author: Austen, Jane/ Austen/ Cecil, David *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 142 *Publication Date: 2001/01/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.51 x 8.50 x 0.49 inches
