] ] Jane Austen's World; The Life and Times of England's Most Popular Author by Maggie Lane. I couldn't find in the L& T links either. It is listed under "suggestions".
This is a nice book. It has has some wonderful pictures including illustrations from Jane Austen's time and photographs from all the adaptations. But it is not just a picture book; there is some real substance to the text. Although it is not a scholarly work, it is well researched and interesting.
