The musical world of Jane Austen seen through the manuscripts and printed editions held by the Jane Austen Memorial Trust at Chawton, with brief histories of contemporary composers and a catalogue of more than 300 muiscal works..

By Gammie, Ian & McCulloch, Derek

St.Albans: Corda Music Publication , 1996. "An appraisal of the 8 books of music which are held by the Jane Austen Memorial Trust. These have never been fully catalogued and on closer inspection proved to have 300 musical items, featuring almost every type of vocal and instrumental music available at the time (the pieces range from the late 1750s to approx 1810).... It contains an introduction to the music and its background, a catalogue of all the pieces, with RISM or other reference numbers to identify where the same music can be found in museums and libraries around the world, biographies of the 70 composers represented, indexes of all the songs, and incipits for more than 60 works which either have doubtful attribution or have not yet been identified at all. The purpose of this publication is to encourage academics and musicians around the world to help in the task of identifying all the music and expand our knowledge not only of Jane Austen's personal musical taste but of domestic music-making in Georgian and Regency times. It will also alleviate the pressure on the Jane Austen Memorial Trust who do not have facilities for microfilming nor even much space for scholars and musicians to study the books in person. The books themselves are not all in good condition and further handling of the pages is detrimental to their survival....There are other music books still in private collections which are known to have belonged to the Austen family, and it is hoped to include details of those in a future publication.. 64p.. 1st UK Edition. Original Wraps.. Fine.

Vanity and Vexation: A Novel of Pride and Prejudice

By Fenton, Kate

St. Martin's Griffin, 2005. A clever and cunning modern day retelling of the adored Jane Austen novel "Tall, dark, and arrogantly handsome --not to mention distinguished, powerful, and rolling in money. Mr. Darcy? No, that's just the woman director of Pride and Prejudice," reports Nicholas Llewellyn Bevan, impoverished novelist and occasional (reluctant) journalist, when a TV production company trundles into his sleepy North Yorkshire valley. Amusedly he watches these glamorous invaders combine the filming of Jane Austen's romantic classic with the much less modest pursuit, off-camera, of real-life romances with the locals. Under his very nose, his bashful handsome neighbor John is plucked out of a village dance by the famously gorgeous (and wealthy) leading actress, Candia Bingham, with whom he at once falls completely in love. Our would-be hero manages only to trip over the black-booted foot of the intimidating and imperious director, Mary Dance. So he's amazed---and a little bit alarmed -when her steely eye seems to be straying his way. A witty and entertaining update on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Austen fans old and new will adore Vanity and Vexation's modern take on her sublime blueprint of the romance game complete with sex, money, and power. With an assured and respectful hand, in the context of the contemporary world, Kate Fenton has penned a riveting story with a hilarious twist.. First Pbk.Ed... Softcover. Fine.

Austenland: A Novel

By Hale, Shannon

New York: Bloomsbury USA, 2007. Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined. Decked out in empire-waist gowns, Jane struggles to master Regency etiquette and flirts with gardeners and gentlemen?or maybe even, she suspects, with the actors who are playing them. It's all a game, Jane knows. And yet the longer she stays, the more her insecurities seem to fall away, and the more she wonders: Is she about to kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own?. 1st US Edition.. Hardcover. New/New.

Northanger Abbey, Lady Susan, The Watsons, Sanditon

By Austen, Jane

Persuasion (Arcturus Classics)

By Jane Austen

London: Arcturus, 2009. As is often the case with Ms. Austen's fiction, "Persuasion" deals with the social issues of the times and paints a fascinating portrait of Regency England, especially when dealing with the class system. Rigid social barriers existed - and everyone wanted to marry "up" to a higher station - and, of course, into wealth. This is also a very poignant and passionate story of love, disappointment, loss and redemption. The point Austen makes here, is that one should not ever be persuaded to abandon core values and beliefs, especially for ignoble goals. There are consequences, always.. First Thus. Softcover. New.

By Austen, Jane

London: ArCTURUS, 2009. Jane Austen wrote some of the most remarkable romantic novels in English, and Emma is said to be written at the height of her powers. Like all her novels (Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility), the narrative is simple, straightforward and the story develops through seemingly commonplace conversations and events. Emma is twenty one year old daughter to rich Mr Woodhouse, "full of trivial communications and harmless gossip." The story captures how Emma comes to terms with her own errors of judgement, and how she discovers her liking and love for one of the chief characters of the novel.. First This.. Softcover. New.
