Jane Austen's Real! Live! Stuff!

The Morgan Library & Museum is currently holding a Jane Austen exhibit featuring "more than 100 works, including her manuscripts, personal letters, and related materials". They've got letters both by and about her, the autograph manuscript of Lady Susan (the only surviving complete manuscript of any of her novels) and an unfinished autograph manuscript of The Watsons, and assorted Austen-related tidbits, including the William Blake portrait that Austen said was a perfect representation of how she had imagined Jane Bennet.

I was thinking of going to New York this winter anyhow, so this might have sealed the deal for me.
