Northanger Abbey was published posthumously in December of 1817, a few months after Jane Austen's death in July of that same year. Austen's brother, Henry, bought back the rights to the book from Crosby & Co in 1816 and supervised its publication.
Northanger Abbey was the first book that Austen completed, and she sold it to Crosby & Co in 1803. They decided against publishing the book, but it was published by a different company more than a decade later.
The book is a satire of the Gothic novel, and follows the heroine, Catherine Morland, as she projects formulas and tropes from Gothic novels onto real life situations and histories.
