Format: Paperback
I bought this book after being pleased but not satisfied with Maggie Lane's "Jane Austen's World." This book is a much more indepth guide to the world of the Regency. It includes many pictures of the interior of Regency houses and much more on the fashion of the day, including pictures and terms that will be helpful if researching or just very curious about the costuming of the day. While "Jane Austen's World" had much much more on Jane Austen's life and family, this book takes a much more indepth look at the times of the author including entertainment, exterior and interior of the homes and the fashion. I recommend this to anyone interested in learning more about the Regency or interested in writing a story, play, etc. about the period. Visually and factually satisfying.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I was interested in Jane Austen. The book is divided up into sections such as country life, clothing, manners, food, etc. with a lot of details about this time and how it relates to Jane's life and situations. The book is lavishly illustrated with full page color photographs, and smaller pictures of Jane, Cassandra, and articles made or used by the Austen Family. It is well written and fun to read. It makes a good starting point for getting the feel of what life was like in Georgian England.

I am always on the hunt for opportunities to read more about the world that Jane Austen and her characters inhabited so I grabbed this one up when I saw it lying on the clearance shelf. It needed a good home. Haha!

I got so much more than I paid for in this one. It is richly illustrated with pictures, drawings, sketchings and details of the late Georgian and early Regency period particularly as they relation to Jane Austen. There is daily life, society, fashion of home and person, politics, locations, and so much more. It would make a nice reference tool, but also handy to have nearby when reading period books. There is a chronology, bibliography and biggest plus, the index.

Nicely organized and worth the perusal.
