Five Letters from Jane Austen to her niece Fanny Knight.

SKU: 90723-1

Printed in facsimile. Letters sewn into the book lining that "approximate as closely as possible to the originals, except that the inner margin has been somewhat exaggerated, to allow the sheets to be sewn." These letters were printed by Lord Brabourne in the1884 edition of Jane Austen's letters. This is as close as most of us will get to having some of Jane Austen's letters in our hands. Marbled paper on boards, cloth spine, paper label to front cover. Top outer corner of the boards with chipped, missing material. Otherwise this is a very clean copy, with a very clean cover and clear, clean letters with almost no foxing. Limited to 250 printed, of which 200 were for sale. Oxford at the Clarendon Press. 1924. USED. $275.00
