@ -  | The library at @chawtonhouse is small yet perfectly formed.  The main collection focuses on women’s literature in English during the period 1600-1830 and includes rare editions.
.
When we visited there were two exhibitions in the house - Writing Women's Rights and Jane Austen's Reading. Austen regularly used the library it was fascinating to see which books influenced her writing.  If you pay a visit to @janeaustenshousemuseum then you definitely need to make time to see this important collection too (it's just down the road). I've posted more photos and links on the blog (see profile). Chawton House opens to the public today.
