Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Was watching The Antiques Roadshow, which, this week came from Blackpool Tower.  I watch it from time to time, but I especially wanted to watch it yesterday because it featured Charlotte Bronte’s Sunday school bible.  Bought from a dealer in the 1920s or 30s for 50.00, the bible is crammed packed with tiny notes by Charlotte.  The expert authenicated the writing as Charlottes, dating the bible from about 1845.    It’s estimated value? between £15,000 and £20,000!
