] Jane Austen's Town and Country Style, Susan Watkins,0-8478-1232-4 I suspect this one has been mentioned before, but I've included it because I've been enjoying it so much. Includes notes on fashions, architecture, some on estate grounds, entertainment, manners. Has some great photos and uses lots of quotes from JA and draws on the history of her family for understanding her perspective and the period. A must read for JA fans!
This book was reissued in 1996 under the title Jane Austen In Style. It is listed on the bibliography here, and is a great book! I have seen it at both Borders and Barnes Ignoble stores.
