Where did Jane Austen shop, or eat, or dance? Teresa DesJardien's guide will tell you - and thousands of other facts about early 19th century London. Have you ever wondered:

- What was a lady's reticule? And if you found a shilling in it, what was a shilling anyway?

- When was it possible to touch the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London?

- Why must the barber be included in any list of Regency era doctors?

Not only a rich Regency resource, Teresa DesJardien's compendium includes thousands of fascinating facts from London's long and rich past. Such as:

- The burning down of London's theatres - which happened, time and again.

- The nature of policing ( or not) throughout London's history.

- When London's parks were founded - and why the public usually weren't invited in.

From animals to architecture, cathedrals to crime, the troubles that came with travel, and so much more, JANE AUSTEN SHOPPED HERE is a comprehensive and entertaining reference for any historian, Jane Austen fan, or lover of all things British.

Researcher and bibliophile Teresa DesJardien is an award-winning author of 15 Regency era novels, and featured in six Regency short story collections. Her haunting of bookstores and libraries, and her nearly 30 years of scouring of shelves for resources for her stories, has resulted in this fact-filled, fascinating, and highly helpful directory.
