Jane Austen's Journeys.
Preface by Maggie Lane. In spite of difficulties we would cry about, travel was all the rage in Britain during Austen's lifetime. People hopped into carriages at a whim, or after well-laid out travel plans, and visited watering holes, famous houses, the City, and scenic wonders. Jones examines this zest for travel, diving into journals, letters, and other first-hand accounts to take us right into that world. Robert Hale Ltd., London. 2014. Hb, Dj. NEW. $25.00
