Jane Austen's 200th Anniversary

18 July 2017

Two-hundred years ago on July 18th, 1817, Jane Austen drew her last breath just after four in the morning at number 8 College Street, Winchester, England, in “a modest house belonging to a Mrs David” 1 at the age of 41.

In honour of the famed author of a number of literary works still popular today, we have compiled the list below of titles available in our collections to celebrate the life and works of Jane Austen.
