Summary
This book presents eight walks through both the London Jane Austen knew and the London of her novels. Follow in Jane's footsteps to her publisher's doorstep and the Prince Regent's vanished palace, see where she stayed when she was correcting proofs of Sense and Sensibility and accompany her on a shopping expedition - and afterwards to the theatre. From well-known landmarks to hidden corners, these walks allow the curious visitor to discover eighteenth-century chop houses, elegant squares, sinister prisons, bustling city streets and exclusive gentlemen's clubs amongst innumerable other Austen-esque delights
Biographical or historical data
