“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”
When it was first published in October 1847, Jane Eyre was a literary sensation. At times it seemed that the whole of the English-speaking world was reading the novel from the mysterious 'Currer Bell' (Charlotte Bronte). Over a century and a half later, the story still enthralls. It is presented here for the first time with the original illustrations by F. H. Townsend from the 2nd edition of 1847.
