Charlotte Brontë is best known for her classic novel, “Jane Eyre.” But the 19th-century English writer started small — like, really small. An auction in Paris today sold off a miniature manuscript that Brontë wrote in 1830 when she was 14 years old. The 4,000-word book measures barely 1 inch by 2 inches.
