It dawned on me today, as I reading the intro to the book The Letters of Sarah Harriet Burney (more later on that excellent source) that I’ve TONS of books to share with readers listed in the bibliography to Two Teens in the Time of Austen.
I’ve been researching Mary Gosling (left) and Emma Smith (right) — also known as Lady Smith and her sister-in-law Emma Austen Leigh, for five years now. The bibliography may be a bit out of date (ie, I’ve MORE to add), but there you will find some online books as well as books you’ll discover in used bookstores or in the library.
Books range from Jane Austen — Emma after all married Jane’s nephew, James Edward Austen — to James Woodforde, the Country Parson. Scroll down till you get to SECONDARY (PUBLISHED) SOURCES.
**I’m always LOOKING for such bibliographic lists — can never have enough books! Always at least one hidden gem… Email me (smithandgosling [at] gmail [dot] com) if you’ve come across some useful finds. Keep in mind, I’m looking for “scholarly” primary editions, good biographies, and travel- or art-related items => no fiction please.
