Sanditon, Lady Susan & the History of England by Jane Austen

Book Description

This rare collection is a must for all Jane-ites. It represents what Richard Church regarded as Jane Austen's literary work-basket, and contains some Austen's earliest work - her hilarious brief "History of England", illustrated by her favourite sister, which is a worthy forerunner of "1066 & All That", to the unfinished "Sanditon", the novel of her maturity on which she was working at her death aged 42. Also included are the two epistolary novels, "Lady Susan" and "Love and Friendship" (sic), "The Watsons", "Catharine", "Lesley Castle", "Evelyn", "Frederic and Elfrida", "Jack and Alice", "Edgar and Emma", "Henry and Eliza" and "The Three Sisters".

Author Biography - Jane Austen

Jane Austen (1775-1817) was one of eight children born to Reverend George Austen (1731-1805) and his wife Cassandra Leigh (1739-1827). Jane attended school with her sister but both became ill and subsequently were educated at home. She spent her formative years at Steventon in Hampshire and wrote much of her juvenilia during this settled period. In 1805 her life changed dramatically when her father died after a short illness. Jane, her mother, and only sister were dependent on friends and family for a roof over their heads, moving several times in a couple of years. In 1809 the three women settled at Chawton in Hampshire, in a house owned by her brother George. While there she lived quietly, seeing modest success from her writing during her lifetime. She became ill around the beginning of 1817 and died in Winchester in July of that year at the age of forty-one.
