In May, my husband, Randy, and I took a trip back east to attend Family Weekend at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, where our youngest daughter, Angela, goes to school. While we were at Dartmouth we visited the Rauner Special Collections Library, which houses original editions of many books, including the supremely popular English novel Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, which was first published in 1813. Here are a few photos I was lucky to take with my iPhone (I say this because there was a crowd of people gathered for this special book viewing at the library). If you look at the third photo (click to enlargen it), you'll see that Jane Austen was referred to as the author of "Sense and Sensibility". After the photos, I've added a proper "nametag" that I devised from a later (1907), edition of Pride and Prejudice, illustrated by C.E. Brock, that I found on Wikipedia.
