Event description

Description

King's College Library’s series of HLF-supported events marking the bicentenary of Jane Austen’s death culminates in this public lecture about the publication of the first and early editions of Austen’s novels by a leading expert, Dr Linda Bree (Cambridge University Press), editor of Jane Austen’s Persuasion (1998) and the Cambridge Edition of Austen’s Later Manuscripts (2008). Dr Bree will talk about the appearance in print of all the first editions: how they were first published, what they looked like and how they were received, her relationship with her publishers, and the posthumous editions of Northanger Abbey and Persuasion.

Those attending the lecture are invited to visit King’s College Library to view first editions of all six novels between 5pm and 6pm on 24th October and after the talk.

Entrance is by ticket only
