Jane Austen's Worthing

£4.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

When Jane Austen visited Worthing in 1805, it was a ramshackle little harbour town; by 1817, when she made it the setting for her last, unfinished novel Sanditon, it had been transformed into a fashionable resort by her friend Edward Ogle. Generously illustrated with period images, this book records Worthing's development, its connections with the novel, and other literary visitors such as Byron and Shelley.
