Jane Austen was born in 1775 and died, aged 41, in 1817. Whilst many of her novels are set in the country or Bath, she passed through London often on her travels or went there to visit her brother Henry or her publishers. Her vivid letters to her sister Cassandra are full of illustrative details about her shopping expeditions and visits to the capital’s galleries and theatres.
