Jane Austen's 'Outlandish cousin', the Life and Letters of Eliza de Feuillide [1761-1813].
Jane's cousin Eliza brought news of the wide world to her pretty cousins at Steventon. Presented at the French court, married to a French Count (or reasonable enough version of one) who died on the guillotine, eventually married to Jane's own brother Henry, Eliza was a joyful woman who openly loved flirting and fun. One of our favorite books. Eliza's welcoming correspondences brings us into the family, and Le Faye's light additional historical context brings her to life. NEAR FINE condition.
