"By a partial, prejudiced and ignorant historian." 1791
Written in 1791 when she was only fifteen years old this is Jane Austen's personal and comical look at the history of England. Here she describes English monarchs from Henry IV to Charles I with her customary sharp wit and at times complete disrespect! Let this book provide an insight into Jane's wicked irony and humour. This is a facsimile of the original text written in Jane's handwriting, complete with irregular spellings, and includes the miniature coloured portraits of each monarch by her sister Cassandra. This book will definitely be a worthy addition to your Jane Austen collection.
