The latest addition to the Juvenilia Press catalogue is particularly fascinating:
The Diary Papers of Emily and Anne Brontë
Edited by Christine Alexander, with Mandy Swann
Juvenilia Press
ISBN: 978-0-7334-3715-1

The Diary Papers provide a rare insight into the early creativity, everyday affairs and anxieties about the future of two of the famous Brontë sisters. Written in minuscule script over a span of eleven years and illustrated by lively sketches, the fragments record details of Emily and Anne’s imaginative Gondal world amongst references to sewing, cooking, pets, servants, family travels, and future plans that reveal their personal differences despite their intimacy.
A few years ago we already posted about the publication of Branwell Brontë's juvenilia piece, The Pirate.
