Jane Austen and her Publishers – Prof. Chris Browne
In a return visit to JASA, Chris will tell the stories of the four most important publishers of Jane Austen from the
perspective of the roles they have had in the publication and dissemination of her works. He will also
discuss two of her might-have-been publishers and will cover some of the economic difficulties of
publishing novels in the early eighteenth century. Chris is a longtime collector of Jane Austen and the books of other 19th Century English authors. If he had been an Austen hero, he would have chosen to be Henry Tilney!
