More Information
Anne Bronte has always been eclipsed by her sisters Charlotte and Emily, born in 1820 and died in 1849 far less is known about her than her 2 sisters. She also lived in a romantic fantasy world until she awoke to the real world due in no small part to her taking the position of a governess and her brothers relationship with her employers wife, this infatuation lead to his dismissal and to her resigning. Her first novel, Agnes Grey, was published as part of a 3 volume edition along with Wuthering Heights, only 300 copies were produced and they had to contribute 50 towards the cost which would be refunded should they sell 250 copies. The book made up the 3rd volume and the set is by far the rarest and most sought after of all the Bronte publications. Such was the magnitude of Wuthering Heights that Anne's work was overlooked somewhat but this did not seem to discourage her from starting work on the Tenant of Wildfell Hall. This time it was published independently in a three volume edition with Anne receiving 25 on publication and a further 25 upon sales of 250. The cost of the set was 1 11s 6d a considerable sum at the time and was well beyond the reach of the average working man. She died tragically shortly after her sister Emily aged on 29. The books of course live on, collectors are only too well aware of their scarcity and value in first issue state though there is plenty of scope for collecting early impressions and period copies.
