Overview

The Jane Austen Handbook by Margaret C. Sullivan

Long before Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Quirk published this guide to life in Regency England to the delight of Austen fans everywhere. Newly published with a revised cover, The Jane Austen Handbook offers step-by-step instructions for proper comportment in the early 19th century. Readers will discover: 

     •  How to Indicate Interest in a Gentleman Without Seeming Forward
     •  How to Ensure a Good Yearly Income
     •  How to Ride Sidesaddle
     •  How to Behave at a Dinner Party

Full of practical directions for navigating the travails of Regency life, this charming illustrated book also serves as a companion for present-day readers, explaining the English class system, currency, dress, and the nuances of graceful living.

Bought this for my friend for her birthday. I can't attest to how good the content is, since I didn't read it. But the book is very nice and looked like a fun read. Needless to say, my friend loved it!
