Northanger Abbey was one of Jane Austen’s earliest novels and the first that she sold for publication. However, it was only published after her death, along with Austen’s last completed novel, Persuasion. In this talk, discover the story of Northanger Abbey from pen to print; from its early beginnings at Jane's family home at Steventon to eventual publication in 1818. A first edition of the novel, along with a contemporary newspaper advertising its publication, will be on display in the museum as part of our Family, Friendship and Northanger Abbey displays.
