Overview

The History of England: From the Reign of Henry the 4th to the Death of Charles the 1st by Jane Austen

The first-ever full-color facsimile edition of one of Jane Austen's early works, with delightful portraits painted by her sister Cassandra, followed by a transcribed version of the text. Sixteen-year-old Jane describes herself as "a partial, prejudiced, and ignorant historian", and her gleeful parody hints at the humor she would later bring to her novels.
