227 editions published between 1814 and 2020 in 6 languages and held by 2,856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mansfield Park is the study of three families: the Bertrams, the Crawfords, and the Prices. At its center is Fanny Price, a poor relation adopted into the family of her rich uncle Thomas Bertram, and condescendingly treated. Only her cousin Edmund, a young clergyman, appreciates her fine qualities, and Fanny falls in love with him. Unfortunately, he is drawn to the shallow and worldly Mary Crawford. Fanny's quiet passivity, steadfast loyalty, and natural goodness are matched against the wit and brilliance of her lovely rival. Jane Austen skillfully uses her characters' emotional relationships to explore the social and moral values by which they attempt to order their lives
Sense and sensibility by Jane Austen( Book )

476 editions published between 1833 and 2020 in 24 languages and held by 2,339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Mr. Dashwood's death, his wife and two daughters, Elinor and Marianne, must accustom themselves to genteel poverty.

Northanger Abbey; and, Persuasion by Jane Austen( Book )

211 editions published between 1817 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Northanger Abbey" and "Persuasion" were first published together in 1818, the year after Jane Austen's death. "Northanger Abbey", which combines literary burlesque with a slender but characteristic main plot, contains some of Jane Austen's lightest comedy. "Persuasion", her last completed novel, has been a favorite with many readers, partly because of its heroine Anne Elliott, whom Jane Austen described in a letter as "almost too good for me", and partly because of its vivid evocation of people and places. -- From publisher's description
LADY SUSAN, THE WATSONS, SANDITON by Jane Austen( )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in English and Danish and held by 1,824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These three short works show Austen experimenting with a variety of different literary styles, from melodrama to satire, and exploring a range of social classes and settings. The early epistolary novel LADY SUSAN depicts an unscrupulous coquette, toying with the affections of several men. In contrast, THE WATSONS is a delightful fragment, whose spirited heroine - Emma - finds her marriage opportunities limited by poverty and pride. Meanwhile SANDITON, set in a seaside resort, offers a glorious cast of hypochondriacs and spectators, treated by Austen with both amusement and scepticism

The Watsons by Jane Austen( Book )

129 editions published between 1804 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fragment of a novel was written by Jane Austin about 1803-1805, but was not published until 1871, as part of James Edward Austen-Leigh's Memoir (Jane Austen had left it untitled; the title "The Watsons" was provided by Austen-Leigh). It describes Emma Watson's return, after a long absence, to her family, who are on the lower financial fringes of the "genteel". It is not clear why Jane Austen did not continue this fragment - perhaps because of her father's death; or because she was discouraged by the fact that after she succeed in selling her first novel (Susan, an earlier version of Northanger Abbey, for a nominal sum in 1803), the publisher decided not to publish after all, and sat on the manuscript; or because she did not want to sustain the tone of almost "painful realism" (according to Jenkins) with which she had begun."
