Jane Austen. A Play by Helen Brown (her great-great-grand-niece).
This play was inspired by a remark of A.A. Milne about how Jane Austen talked - like Elizabeth Bennet, "of course" - and of a desire to see Jane walking and talking. Based largely on Austen's letters, augmented by family tradition and the letters of Eliza de Feuillide. Very well preserved, with some light wear to the jacket (now in mylar) and a bookplate of a previous owner in the front. Duckworth, London. 1939 first edition. Hb, Dj. USED. $50.00
