Interesting how the Baronetage ( Debretts ?) appears like a handmirror for Sir Walter to admire and reflect on 'the blessing of a baronetcy'.
Yet the satisfaction Sir Walter derives from the Baronetage is in contrast to Elizabeth's distaste for the Book of books with her disappointment over Heir presumptive William Walter Elliot, Esq. handwritten in by her father and shows her uneasiness at age 29, still unmarried.
In Persuasion, I think marriage is an important issue for women.
