Life in the Country
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
'We were happy to see Edward,' wrote Jane Austen of her nephew, 'and he makes himself as agreeable as ever, sitting in such a quiet comfortable way making his delightful sketches'. His charming silhouettes have remained in the family ever since and are published here for the first time, with an explanatory introduction and appropriate extracts from the writings of his celebrated aunt. His witty, acutely observed vignettes of rural life remain as beguiling as the day they were sketched. Slightly off-mint.
