A tiny, unpublished manuscript written by 19th century English writer Charlotte Brontë at age 13 will be put on sale for US$1.25 million at the New York Antiquarian Book Fair. Titled “A Book of Ryhmes” by Charlotte Brontë, Sold by Nobody, and Printed by Herself, the manuscript contains 10 poems written by Brontë, including such titles as The Beauty of Nature, Song of an Exile, and A Bit of a Ryhme. According to Henry Wessells, an associate at James Cummins Bookseller, “The Book of Rhymes” (or “ryhmes,” as Charlotte spelled it on the title page), dated December 1829, has not been seen in the public eye since it was sold in 1916. The 15-page work shows the rich imagination of Charlotte and her sisters Emily and Anne, according to a press release from the dealers. The Brontë sisters wrote some of the most beloved English novels, including “Jane Eyre” (1847), “Wuthering Heights” (1847), and “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall” (1948).
