Rare Charlotte Bronte book will return home

A book written by Charlotte Bronte at the age of 14 will return home after being bought by the Bronte Society at auction in Paris.

The miniature work, called The Young Men’s Magazine, will go to the Parsonage Museum in the Brontes’ old home in Haworth, West Yorkshire, reports BBC.

It was bought for €600,000 (£512,970) after a fundraising campaign by the Bronte Society, which runs the museum.

The work is one of six “little books” written by Charlotte, the eldest of the three sisters, in 1830. Five are known to survive, and the Bronte Parsonage Museum already holds the other four.

Charlotte is best known for her 1847 classic novel Jane Eyre.
