Jane Austen's letters by Jane Austen( Book )
43 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,625 libraries worldwide
Jane Austen's letters afford a unique insight into the daily life of the novelist: intimate and gossipy, observant and informative, they bring alive her family and friends, her surroundings and contemporary events with a freshness unparalleled in modern biographies. Above all we recognize the unmistakable voice of the author of Pride and Prejudice, witty and amusing as she describes the social life of town and country, thoughtful and constructive when writing about the business of literary composition. R.W. Chapman's ground-breaking edition of the collected Letters first appeared in 1932, and a second edition followed twenty years later. For this third edition Deirdre Le Faye has added new material that has come to light since 1952, and re-ordered the letters into their correct chronological sequence. She has provided discreet and full annotation to each letter, including its provenance, and information on the watermarks, postmarks and other physical details of the manuscripts, together with new biographical, topographical and general indexes

Jane Austen : the world of her novels by Deirdre Le Faye( Book )
19 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 794 libraries worldwide
"Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park, Emma, Persuasion - all present delicately crafted contemporary observations of life in early nineteenth-century England. In Jane Austen: The World of Her Novels, renowned Austen scholar Deirdre Le Faye brings this world to life, imparting an understanding that enormously enriches our appreciation of the work of this best-loved of English novelists." "Le Faye begins with a meticulously researched overview of the period, from foreign affairs, fashion, and social ranks to transportation, candle etiquette, and sanitation practices. She goes on to consider each novel individually, explaining in detail its action, its setting, the reaction of public and critics, and Austen's own feelings about the book. The witty and pertinent illustrations, many never published before, allow the reader to visualize not only Austen and her surroundings, but also the people and places that appear in these beloved novels." "Jane Austen: The World of Her Novels is essential reading for students of literature and social history and for all Jane Austen enthusiasts who want to gain a new insight into her work."--Jacket

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 405 libraries worldwide
One of the first of Jane Austen's novels to be written, and one of the last to be published, Northanger Abbey is both an amusing story of how a naive girl enters society and wins the affection of a witty young clergyman, and a high-spirited parody of the lurid gothic novels that were popular during Austen's youth. In the process it features a vivid account of social life in the late eighteenth-century Bath, and Austen's famous defence of the novel as a literary form. This edition, based on the text of the novel as published posthumously in 1818, is accompanied by explanatory notes and an appendix summarizing the plots and situations of the gothic fictions that form the basis of much of Austen's comedy. In addition there is an extensive introduction covering the context, publication, and critical history of the novel, a chronology of Austen's life, and authoritative textual apparatus.--Book jacket
The Jane Austen cookbook by Maggie Black( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and Polish and held by 402 libraries worldwide
This book has authentic recipes associated with Jane Austen, now modernized for today's cooks, including buttered prawns, wine-roasted gammon and pigeon pie, broil'd eggs, white soup and salmagundy, pyramid creams and Martha's almond cheesecakes. Jane Austen wrote her novels in the midst of a large and sociable family. Brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, friends and acquaintances were always coming and going, which offered numerous occasions for convivial eating and drinking. One of Jane's dearest friends, Martha Lloyd, lived with the family for many years and recorded in her "Household Book" over 100 recipes enjoyed by the Austens. A selection of this family fare, now thoroughly tested and modernized for today's cooks, is re-created here, together with some of the more sophisticated dishes which Jane and her characters would have enjoyed at balls, picnics and supper parties. A fascinating introduction describes Jane's own interest in food, drawing upon both the novels and her letters, and explains the social conventions of shopping, eating and entertaining in late Georgian and Regency England. The book is illustrated throughout with delightful contemporary line drawings, prints and watercolors. - Back cover
