The three Bronte sisters have become three of the most renowned female authors of their time. They were very close during their lives, and spent their childhoods feeding each other's avid imaginations. Emily and Anne both died sadly young, both suffering from ill health, both dying within a year of their brother, Branwell. Charlotte survived all of her siblings.

These editions were edited by Temple Scott.

This set contains a selection of newspaper and magazine clippings regarding the Bronte sisters and their works.
