Jane Austen Manuscripts Online

The website’s been live for a while, but today marks the official launch of Jane Austen’s Fiction Manuscripts. This is a freely-available digital edition of all of the extant Austen manuscripts, with high quality digital pictures and transcriptions. The digital edition represents a ‘virtual reunification’ of a collection which was split up in the nineteenth century.

Also, if you’re in Oxford today is Jane Austen Day at the Bodleian Library, where two Austen-related manuscripts, and various other Austen bits and bobs will be on display.
