Unfinished Jane Austen manuscript up for auction

LA Times Jacket Copy blog: Jane Austen’s unfinished manuscript goes up for auction

Jane Austen’s novels are so beloved that her fans debate which is best. “Emma” or “Pride and Prejudice”? “Sense and Sensibility” or “Persuasion,” or the underappreciated “Mansfield Park” or “Northanger Abbey”?

Seldom does anyone stand up for “The Watsons.”

It’s going to sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars, naturally. But, as Jacket Copy points out, you can view them for free online at Jane Austen’s Fiction Manuscripts
