P&P2 also had a shocking lack of parasols. The only one I remember was held over the head of Anne deBurgh by Mrs. Jenkinson. I thought that ladies used parasols frequently, to keep the sun from making them a little tanned when traveling in the summer.
I remember it was mentioned in the book, too. Didn't Lizzy go and fetch her parasol before "taking a turn in the prettiesh sort of little wilderness" with Lady Catherine?
Yes indeed that shocked me as well(the lack of parasols).
Also yes, in the book Lizzy went and fetched her parasol before leaving to take a walk with Lady Catherine...
