Book Suggestion: The Jane Austen Handbook

The Jane Austen Handbook: A Sensible Yet Elegant Guide to Her World by Margaret C. Sullivan
A delightful indulgence for self-avowed “Janeites,“The Jane Austen Handbook elucidates the day-to-day practicalities of life for proper young ladies of the Regency era. Within the charmingly illustrated pages of this little volume, you‘ll find how-to advice for riding sidesaddle, paying a morning call, indicating romantic interest without seeming forward, avoiding dancing with an undesirable partner, and much more—all with graceful aplomb, of course! An appendix offers a short biography of Jane Austen, a summary of her works, and a glossary of period terms— particularly useful for readers just beginning to make acquaintance with Austen‘s Catherine Moreland, Emma Woodhouse, or Elizabeth Bennet. From Bas Bleu Booksellers.
