A Fine unmarked copy with VG+ dustjacket which is not price clipped. 208 pages. 74 illustrations. Second impression corrected for errors in the first edition. Lord David Cecil's book is intended neither as a straightforward biographical narrative of Jane Austen's life, nor as a study of her as author; but rather as an attempt, with the help of material drawn from her letters, her novels and other people's memories of her, to reconstruct and depict her living personality and to explore its relation to her art. Auberon Waugh, in reviewing the book, states ' a masterpiece which ought to be in every educated home.'
