Jane Austen and children by David Selwyn( )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book ... looks at both the real and the literary children in her life--children seen and unseen (and dead); children as models of behaviour, good and bad; as objects of affection, amusement, usefulness, pity, regret, jealousy, resentment; children in the way; children as excuses; children as heirs. In the process it casts fascinating light on a hitherto largely ignored aspect of her work and the age in which she lived."--Book flap
Jane Austen and leisure by David Selwyn( )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jane Austen's novels portray a leisured society of gentlemen and ladies who do not need to work. Yet leisure, the distinguishing mark of a gentleman, was not meant to be an excuse for idleness. The proper use of leisure to fulfil duties, to read and to think, and above all to pursue social relations in a world where family and marriage for the propertied was of central importance, was a vital test of character."--Jacket
The poetry of Jane Austen and the Austen family by Jane Austen( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As in many households in the late eighteenth century, writing verses was a pastime with the Austen family, and the composition of ingenious riddles and charades provided a source of lively entertainment. This volume of verses by Jane Austen and her family contains all the known poems by Jane herself as well as a selection of work by her mother, her sister Cassandra, four of her brothers, her uncle James, her nieces Anna and Fanny, her nephew James Edward and other relatives. David Selwyn provides an introduction and full explanatory notes; his transcriptions, taken from autograph manuscripts or from the earliest copies, are precise in terms of spelling punctuation and layout

Jane Austen : a celebration( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we enter the third millennium, Jane Austen is more popular than ever. Not only her six novels, which have been dramatised, televised and filmed, but her letters and poems are alive and well. Her style, her distinctive sensibility and her no-nonsense but subtle sense of character and motive, keep her a the heart of our concerns. Maggie Lane and David Selwyn bring together in this celebration over a century of individual testimony to the abiding value of Jane Austen. They include, too, a few dissenting voices. Other novelists, teachers, politicians, actors and general readers share our passion for the 'comedian' (Bruce Chatwin), the 'unpretentious philosopher' (Lord David Cecil), the 'calm gaze' (David Kossoff), the 'genius' (Barbara Pym) that she was. There is nothing tame about her mannerly world; as W.H. Auden says, 'Beside her Joyce seems innocent as grass.' -- Book cover

Edmund Geste and his books : reconstructing the library of a Cambridge don and Elizabethan bishop by David G Selwyn( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edmund Geste, probably pronounced 'Guest', (c. 1515-1577) studied at King's College, Cambridge, where he became a fellow in 1536 under Henry VIII, rising to become Vice-Provost under Edward VI in 1550 before being expelled under Queen Mary. With the accession of Queen Elizabeth, he embarked on an ecclesiastical career, becoming Archdeacon of Canterbury (1559), Bishop of Rochester (1560), and finally Bishop of Salisbury in 1571. During all this time, he gradually amassed a considerable library which he left to his cathedral of Salisbury on his death. Dr Selwyn presents an account of Geste's career as a book collector, with a detailed study of his confessional journey from the 'old religion' to Elizabethan Protestantism. As well as the documentary sources, Dr Selwyn examines the evidence of the books themselves and Geste's use of them as shown by his often extensive annotations. He presents studies of the earlier provenance of the books, the bookbinders he used, and his theological interests in so far as these can be inferred from the range of authors, English and continental, in his collection. The book has indexes of publishers and printers, bindings, provenances and annotations, and also the pastedowns, many of which have been identified by Dr Christopher de Hamel and include many leaves from medieval manuscripts and printed books, some of considerable significance."--
