The order of writing

I'm interested that Tomalin is so definite about the order in which JA wrote her first three books (E&M, First Impressions, the revised E&M into S&S, and then NA). I think I've read other commentators who were not so certain of the order.
It's interesting isn't it - I always thought of NA as a much less polished and mature work than P&P. This may of course be reflected in the fact that P&P was rewritten before publication, whereas it seems she didn't touch the manuscript of NA again before she died.
