Foundation of association

Nearly 15 years have passed since we went to see a movie and fell in love with the fashion and life around 1800. What has been our common hobby in the recent years, we now want to share with others. Therefore we decided to found an association that deals with the life and works of Jane Austen, and also with the history and life of the early and late modern period with focus on the early 19th Century.

Biography

What are men to rocks and mountains? Oh! What hours of transport we shall spend! And when we do return, it shall not be like other travellers, without being able to give one accurate idea of any thing. We will know where we have gone; we will recollect what we have seen. Let our first effusions be less insupportable than those of the generality of travellers.
