Overview and metadata sections

R. Brimley Johnson (1867-1932) was an English biographer, critic, and editor who specialized in nineteenth century English authors and literature. Johnson was the youngest son of William Henry Farthing, a schoolmaster. He entered Corpus Christi College at the University of Cambridge in 1886 and established a small publishing business in London and Edinburgh by 1900. In 1909, Johnson founded The Gownsman and served as its editor from 1912-1913. He also published and edited extensively. Notable works include, Jane Austen, a critical study; Jane Austen, her Life, her Work, her Family and her Critics; and The Women Novelists Fanny Burney to George Eliot.

Typed sheets have been pasted into a bound volume dated 1927. The text is the same as Johnson's published work on Jane Austen. This item may be the typescript draft for the printed book.
