To peruse this lovely volume is to step back in time and experience the world of Georgian and Regency Britain -- the world of Jane Austen's enduringly popular fiction. From grand country houses to humble villagers' cottages, from formal dinners to intimate family suppers, from the streets of Bath to the Cobb at Lyme Regis, the author revisits the places familiar to Austen and her characters as she explores in depth the social and physical environment that formed the backdrop for such classics as Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Sense and Sensibility.Using archival materials, Deirdre Le Faye, an acclaimed Austen authority, clarifies for the modern reader the myriad references in Austen's novels and letters to the places and social customs of her time. With its wealth of illustrations, many never before published, this meticulously detailed account is an essential source of background information for all students and enthusiasts of Jane Austen's books.
