Jane Austen

Juvenilia – Volume III

Perhaps as early as 1787, Austen began to write poems, stories, and plays for her own and her family's amusement. Austen later compiled “fair copies” of these early works into three bound notebooks, now referred to as the "Juvenilia,” containing pieces originally written between 1787 and 1793. (from Wikipedia).

The 3rd volume of juvenilia includes:
* Evelyn
* Catharine.
