Later manuscripts of Jane Austen

I just received a notification from about this very expensive but also very interesting book about the later manuscripts of Jane Austen. The hardcover book is appropriately titled Later Manuscripts (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Jane Austen), edited by Janet Todd and Linda Bree, and we can see the table of contents here. It combines the three unfinished novels of Jane Austen (Lady Susan, The Watsons and Sanditon), with opinions on Mansfield Park and Emma. We also have extra poems and charades in the 872 pages book.

Anyone interested? I might just wait 1-2 years for the decently priced second hand version, $ 126 is too much for a student...
