Jane Austen (1775-1817) died nearly two centuries ago, but she still remains arguably our most beloved novelist. That affection persists but the world in which she lived vanishes more with each passing year. This richly informative book rescues Austen's England by gathering previously unpublished manuscripts, diaries, and letters pertinent to almost every aspect of everyday life of the period. Its topics include everything from birth, education, work, sex practices, courtship, marriage, social activities, crime, punishment, and superstitions. Scores of windows into a lost era.
