Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

19 editions published between 1847 and 2008 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1849, The Quarterly Review noted that "Jane Eyre gives the most stupid something to think, and the most reserved something to say." Charlotte Brontë's masterpiece has captured the imaginations of readers since its publication in 1847, and in the last century alone, the novel has spawned a plethora of film and television adaptations, guided tours of associated Yorkshire places, and even a recipe for Jane Eyre walnut tea sandwiches perfect for book club gatherings. For those unfamiliar with the classic tale of Jane Eyre and Edward Fairfax Rochester or those just interested in revisiting their story, experience the novel as it was initially published with this early edition of the first volume (and then follow up with the second and third volumes, also included in the app)
