The reasons why it isn't in the bibliography are as follows:-
1. No-one has given a review of it yet,and I haven't seen it, so there isn't anything to say about it yet!Anyone who does read it is welcome to give theor opinion of it here.
2. The books in the bibliography are designed to further our understanding of Jane Austen's life and works. If that book does a good job of that, it'll go in. If it is merely a rough guide to the Regency and Victorian periods so that other people can write novels, then it probably doesn't qualify. At the risk of sounding harsh,I feel I must remind you that Pemberley costs $800 per month to run, and we cannot afford to expand into generic romance and historical writing. I keep the focus of this board extremely narrow for this reason.
3. If I were to make an exception to reason number two ,it would be for one person only, and that's for Patricia Bingham, who came onto this page to finish off her book on the same subject, and has stayed to hand on her knowledge to us all, free, gratis, and for nothing.:-)
