Collecting Jane Austen

Jane Austen in Vermont blog posts on Collecting Jane Austen:

My plan: to post each week [when possible!] a book by or about Jane Austen that a collector should have in their growing library. The first post is about the David Gilson Bibliography because if your plan is to actively collect Jane Austen, this book is your starting point, an absolute must-have. I hope each week to give short snippets on the various books in my own collection, as well as books that never made it to my shelves but should be there…I welcome your comments on what your favorite books are, the essentials in your collection, or any questions you might have about how to go about starting such a collection. It’s a lifetime endeavor!
