Memoir of Jane Austen by James Edward Austen-Leigh( Book )
162 editions published between 1870 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,686 libraries worldwide
"James Edward Austen-Leigh's Memoir of his aunt Jane Austen was published in 1870, over fifty years after her death. Together with the shorter recollections of James Edward's two sisters, Anna Lefroy and Caroline Austen, the Memoir remains the prime authority for her life and continues to inform all subsequent accounts. These are family memories, the record of Jane Austen's life shaped and limited by the loyalties, reserve, and affection of nieces and nephew recovering in old age the outlines of the young aunt they had each known. They still remembered the shape of her bonnet and the tone of her voice, and their first-hand accounts bring her vividly before us. Their declared partiality also raised fascinating issues concerning biographical truth, and the terms in which all biography functions." "This edition brings together for the first time these three memoirs, and also includes Jane's brother Henry Austen's 'Biographical Notice' of 1818 and his lesser known 'Memoir' of 1833, making the collection a unique biographical record."--Jacket

"In taking R.W. Chapman's Oxford Illustrated Edition as my copy-text, I was willingly complying with received opinion. In the sixty or so years since it was first issued, Chapman's edition of Jane Austen has been corrected in some particulars and surpassed in the treatment of the 'Minor works'. But none of its successors has displaced it as a model among scholarly editions and the world-wide point of references for the study of this author."--Page 2 of Manual
