Description

The Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne were prolific English writers of the mid nineteenth century, who like many contemporary female writers, originally published their poems and novels under male pseudonyms: Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Their poetical and prose work immediately attracted attention for their passion and originality, and subsequently became accepted into the canon of great English literature. This set contains the following works: 'The Professor', by Charlotte Bronte. 'The Life of Charlotte Bronte', by E. C. Gaskell with an introduction and notes by Temple Scott and B. W. Willett. 'Agnes Grey', by Anne Bronte. With a memoir of her sisters by Charlotte Bronte. 'Wuthering Heights', by Emily Bronte with a preface by Charlotte Bronte. 'Shirley', in two volumes, by Charlotte Bronte. 'Villette', in two volumes, by Charlotte Bronte. 'Jane Eyre', in two volumes, by Charlotte Bronte. 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall', in two volumes, by Anne Bronte. This set was edited by Temple Scott. Collated, with: Four illustrated plates to 'The Professor'.
