Jane Eyre : titre manuscrit

Charlotte Brontë reçoit une lettre de son éditeur Smith and Elder en août 1847, rejetant son premier roman (The Professor) mais l'encouragent à écrire. Elle envoya alors ce manuscrit de Jane Eyre — c'est le seul manuscrit connu à ce jour. Edité en octobre 1847, le roman est un succès immédiat.

Le manuscrit de Jane eyre

Publié en trois volumes

Élégamment écrit de la main de Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre, dont l'action se déroule au Nord de l'Angleterre pendant le règne de George III, est le roman d'apprentissage par excellence de la littérature Anglaise.

Ce manuscrit de 824 pages est un des trésors les plus précieux de la British Library. Il n'a jamais été publié auparavant en raison des difficultés techniques que cela représentait.

Une édition en 3 volumes

Édition limitée : 1000 exemplaires numérotés

Les trois volumes de ce manuscrit sont présentés dans un luxueux coffret, accompagnés d'une collection de gravures par Edmund Garrett.

A beautiful book

This is such a beautiful manuscript and a must for Jane Eyre fans. It is high quality and beautifully presented. I feel honoured to own one


I am in deep love for the pure soncere soul of charlotte


I am so happy to own a copy of this unique manuscript. I live near Haworth so it was even more exciting to be able to buy it from the Haworth Parsonage itself.

Jane Eyre

We came across this title in the Bronte Parsonage gift shop in Howarth to our total surprise and delight and bought a copy there and then. Fabulous quality in this reproduced masterpiece and would recommend this treasure to anyone who has an interest in the works of the Bronte's, or simply a collector of books. Complete with the actual changes to words that were made before sending to publication this truly is a wonderful piece.

A must for all Brontë enthusiasts

Heard about this edition on Open Book and immediately proceeded to order my own copy. Quick shipping. Beautiful book, inside and out. The handwritten text is legible and fascinating to read through. A must for all Brontë enthusiasts.
