To hide that it was by her. • During 1816 Jane suffered from Addison's disease, became increasingly ill, and though she did continued to work on her novels, it was clear that she did not have much time remaining. • She died on 18 July 1817, and was buried in Winchester Cathedral six days later. • Jane's brother Henry prepared "Northanger Abbey" and "Persuasion", the last of her novels, for publication, and they appeared after she died at the end of 1817.
