Tom's Attic

Just a random collection of stuff

404 notes


The undoubted highlight among Houghton’s miniature books is a collection of nine tiny manuscripts created by Charlotte Brontë and her brother Branwell in their early teens. Handmade and extremely delicate, the books have now been conserved and completely digitized. For more on these remarkable volumes, see this story in the Harvard Gazette.

Brontë, Charlotte, 1816-1855. Juvenilia, 1829-1830.
