Northanger Abbey

by Jane Austen

Condition: As New in As New dust jacket


Tally Hall Pres. As New in As New dust jacket. 1997. Hardcover. 0681220678 . 5.0 x 0.75 x 7.5 in; 268 pages; "No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy would have supposed her to be born an heroine." So starts this satirical coming of age novel by the great writer Jane Austen. Seventeen year old Catherine is invited to Northanger Abbey where her wild imagination concocts a murder mystery. .

Northanger Abbey was the first of Jane Austen's novels to be completed for publication, though she had previously made a start on Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. According to Cassandra Austen's Memorandum, Susan (as it was first called) was written about the years 1798-1799. It was revised by Austen for the press in 1803, and sold in the same year for £10 to a London bookseller, Crosby & Co. , who decided against publishing.
