Images from the Jane Austen Collection

During our semester-long celebration of the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice, we hope to add images of the events and collection. The exhibition aims to chronicle the evolution of Pride and Prejudice, and its adaptations in art, theater, and literature over the centuries. Most significantly as each generation cherishes the novel, new interpretations and illustrations have changed the way we admire and understand Pride and Prejudice. While this is only a small selection of our collection, we hope it inspires and interests you as much as the novel has inspired us for 200 years.

Additionally, we house a selection of images on an online gallery which can be visited through this link.
