The Victorian actress Rosina Filippi was the first person to adapt the vels of Jane Austen for stage. This book contains her stage directions for scenes from Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, Emma and Pride and Prejudice. I am convinced that Jane Austen as a playwright will fascinate her audiences as much as she has her readers as a velist (Rosina Filippi). Reprint of the original edition from 1895. With illustrations from Margaret Fletcher.
