Sarah Prescott, Literary Archivist at the University of Leeds, said: "The display features some of the most significant Brontë items to come to light, and it’s unlikely that they will be on public display together again in our lifetimes. These items give us intimate insight into the lives, hopes and ambitions of some of the most famous and well-loved writers in English literature.”
Ann Dinsdale, Principal Curator at the Brontë Parsonage Museum, added: “The Brontë Parsonage Museum is proud to have been part of the consortium that fought to save the Blavatnik Honresfield Library for the nation. These wonderful manuscripts offer an unique insight into the intense collaboration and creativity that bound the Brontë children together, making clear their long apprenticeship as writers.”
Becoming the Brontës runs through October 28.
