This volume examines the manuscript Austen was writing at the time of her death in 1817, providing an easy-to-read printed transcription of that 120 page manuscript, including all stages of revision. Used in conjunction with the facsimile edited by B.C. Southam (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1975), it allows readers unfamiliar with Austen's hand access to the unique insights into her creative processes. The analysis following the transcription describes in detail all stages of Austen's revisions, including slips of the pen. There is also a discussion of her style and her insight into human nature. The "Sanditon" manuscript is of literary value because it is the largest existing specimen of an Austen original working draft.
