As the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, 2017 presents an opportunity to showcase not only significant early editions of Austen’s works held in the Special Collections Library, but a much broader swath of materials revealing the historical milieu in which she and her characters lived.

The 1780s-1810s was a tumultuous time period in Britain with effects reaching to the present day, and we are fortunate to be able to draw on a rich collection of sources that illustrate Austen’s historical moment, from A Companion to the Ballroom and The Book of Common Prayer to An Essay on the Slavery and Commerce of the Human Species... and A Vindication of the Rights of Woman.
