A super little book for fans of Jane Austen and anyone wanting to know more about the world she lived in. The chapters are easy to dip in and out of, and there are some lovely colour and black and white plates included.
This is a history book that describes England in the time Jane Austen was alive. It uses many quotes from Jane's own books, and other authors of the time, to illustrate customs and manners and much more.

a great "curiosity" book, that, from the premisses of Jane Austen's books, and other people's (fictional and real) quotations, gives us a taste of Georgian life in England. Highly recommend it!
