HRC "Austen in Austin" Gallery Talk

Thu, November 21, 2019 | Harry Ransom Center

7:00 PM


In The Lost Books of Jane Austen, Professor Janine Barchas champions cheap nineteenth-century reprintings and their unsung role in Austen’s early reception history.  In the current gallery exhibition entitled “Austen in Austin,” she has gathered together Jane Austen copies owned by the Ransom Center to see if the holdings of a single author can reveal the prides and prejudices of book collecting.  Join her in an illustrated talk-and-walk through the Ransom Center’s wealth of first editions, unique family and association copies, as well as some Janeite surprises.  The event will be followed by a book signing.
