There’s lots of good stuff around about the new exhibition at the Morgan Library in New York City, A Woman’s Wit: Jane Austen’s Life and Legacy, which opened last week, and we’ll have all of it eventually, but particularly wanted to share this short film produced by the Morgan as an enticement.
We’re guessing they’re not going to let us plebes handle the merchandise quite so freely. 😉 (GLOVES! WHY ISN’T SHE WEARING GLOVES! AAAAAAAARGH!) And doesn’t the Lady Susan manuscript make a lovely little stack? The size of the pages reminds us of our facsimile ms. copy of The History of England. *squeeeee*
The exhibition runs through March 14, 2010, so you still have time to make plans to see it. We are looking forward to seeing it at some point! Maybe more than once!
