New book on the 18th Century

The Washington Post's Book World today reviewed a new book
"The Pleasures of the Imagination--English Culture in the Eighteenth Century" by John Brewer, published by Farrar Straus Giroux, 721 pp. $40.
The review is, generally, favourable with some minor exceptions, especially those concerning proofreading and spelling errors! It doesn't cover the Regency, itself, but the century leading up to it and the Augustan period, which is actually Jane Austen's influence.
