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 of Austen’s earliest work—her hilarious brief History of England, illustrated by her favorite sister, which is a worthy forerunner of 1066 & All That to the unfinished Sanditon, the novel of her maturity on which she was writing at her death at age forty-two. Also included are the two epistolary novels, Lady Susan and Love and Friendship, and The Watsons, Catharine, Lesley Castle, Evelyn, Frederic and Elfrida, Jack and Alice, Edgar and Emma, Henry and Eliza, and The Three Sisters.

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.
