Appeal to 'save' Charlotte Bronte treasure

Appeal to 'save' Charlotte Bronte treasureA museum dedicated to the Bronte sisters has launched an appeal for funds to buy a "lost" Charlotte Bronte manuscript and put it on public show. Young Men's Magazine Number 2 is valued at up to £300,000 by Sotheby's. The Bronte Parsonage Museum, based in the literary family's home in Haworth, West Yorkshire, already has a number of the other volumes in the series. It is "the most significant manuscript to come to light in decades", museum director Andrew McCarthy said
