112 AUSTEN, Jane) LE FAYE, Deirdre Jane Austen's Letters. Third Edition, in dustjacket
Oxford University Press, Oxford / New York, 1996, ISBN:0198117647 
(AUSTEN, Jane). Jane Austen's Letters. Third Edition. Collected and Edited by Deirdre Le Faye. Oxford / New York : Oxford University Press, (1996). Fourth Impression. Pp (4),v-xviii,1-643,(1). Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Jane Austen's letters afford a unique insight into the daily life of the novelist: intimate and gossipy, observant and informative--they read much like the novels themselves. They bring alive her family andfriends, her surroundings and contemporary events with a freshness unparal leled in modern biographies. Above all we recognize the unmistakable voice of the author of such novels as Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. We see the shift in her writing from witty and amusing descriptions of the social life of town and country, to a thoughtful and constructive tone while writing about the business of literary composition. R.W. Chapman's ground-breaking edition of the collected Letters first appeared in 1932, and a second edition followed twenty years later. Now in this third edition of Jane Austen's Letters, Deirdre Le Faye has added new material that has cometo light since 1952, and re-ordered the letters into their correct chronol ogical sequence. She has provided discreet and full annotation to each letter, including its provenance, and information on the watermarks, postmarks,and other physical details of the manuscripts, together with new biographi cal, topographical, and general indexes." (from the dustjacket flap). Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 50.00

"'Mixed Doubles,' 'an entertainment on marriage,' was originally presented at the Hampstead Theatre Club in February 1969 and was presented in this final version at the Comedy Theatre, London in April 1969. It takes the form of eightshort plays, each for two characters, written by Alan Ayckbourn, John Bowe n, Lyndon Brook, David Campton, Alun Owen, Harold Pinter, James Saunders and Fay Weldon. Each is an independent play in its own right but the whole sequence, linked by a series of wickedly anti-authoritarian monologues written by George Melly adds up to an amusing if acid picture of the progress of married life from honeymoon to cemetery." - from the dustjacket.
