More Info

As the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, 2017 presents an opportunity to showcase not only significant early editions of Austen’s works held in the Special Collections Library, but a much broader swath of materials revealing the historical milieu in which she and her characters lived.

The 1780s-1810s was a tumultuous time period in Britain with effects reaching to the present day, and we are fortunate to be able to draw on a rich collection of sources that illustrate Austen’s historical moment, from A Companion to the Ballroom and The Book of Common Prayer to An Essay on the Slavery and Commerce of the Human Species... and A Vindication of the Rights of Woman.
