The Story of the Janes.
Illustrated by Hattie Longstreet Price. Nice thick old book with large print. A chapter is shared on each "Jane" (includes Jennys and Jeannes) with the premise of finding famous women in history who share the name with a girl and her godmother. Jane Austen's chapter is named "A Country Rector's Daughter" and is still a fine introduction to Miss Austen for young people. Her companions include Jenny Lind, Joan of Arc, Jane Addams, Lady Jane Grey. Spine is faded and bowed. Binding is no longer tight. Original owner's inscriptions from 1932. The Penn Publishing Company, Philadelphia. 1928. Hb. USED. $12.00
