"the shabbiest volume being a compilation of the works of Jane Austen"

  Jane Austen was an English writer known for her witty portrayals of 19th Century society. She wrote from 1811 to 1816: Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), Emma (1816), Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, which were both published posthumously in 1818. She died before she could complete her last novel, Sanditon.

Over the years a huge fan base has been built around her work - with many unofficial sequels and movies based on her characters, and their stories.
