Unfinished Jane Austen Manuscript Sells at Sotheby's Auction print
July 14, 2011

An unfinished manuscript written by Jane Austen around 1804 sold at the Sotheby's auction for almost 1 million pounds. The incomplete work titled "The Watsons" is the earliest surviving manuscript for a novel by Austen and is exceptional because it contains the corrections of the author. The story centers around a widowed clergyman's four daughters. Sotheby's book specialist emphasized that the heavily corrected draft "has afforded an extremely broad audience an insight into the author's writing process and reworkings".

The fantastic novels written by Jane Austen, including the published version of The Watsons are available in English in the web shop of Hungaropress!
