in consequence of the missive, Spacks 'n' such, penned by Rae Elaine
Indexing an annotation would be a difficult task. The new annotation by Spacks of S&S (available in about a week from amazon; use the RoP link!) will doubtless not be indexed. There are two other annotations of JA's works from the same publisher as Spacks' annotation of P&P, Emma and Persuasion, and they're not indexed.
Nor is the pricey S&S Cambridge Edition of the Works of Jane Austen indexed. (Nor are any of the other five annotations.) I don't have my copy of David M. Shapard's annotation of P&P handy but as I recall it's not indexed.
In short I've yet to see one of JA's novels indexed. I don't see this as any great loss as I don't see how you can index, for example, an extensive historical annotation.
