Spotlight on the Internet - Jane Austen Fiction Manuscripts

Jane Austen Fiction Manuscripts

An ongoing joint project of the University of Oxford and King's College London whose mission is the creation of a digital resource reuniting all the known holograph surviving manuscripts of Austen’s fiction in a virtual collection. They represent every stage of her writing career and a variety of physical states: working drafts, fair copies, and handwritten publications for private circulation.  The site includes transcriptions as well as high quality facsimiles.
