In The Jane Austen Handbook: A Sensible Yet Elegant Guide to Her World, author Margaret C. Sullivan enlightens readers on all the aspects of a young Regency ladies upbringing in polite society with step-by-step instructions for proper comportment in the early nineteenth century. You’ll discover: 

  • How to Become an Accomplished Lady

Jane Austen was one of the greatest English novelists in history. Despite a rather sheltered life, she was able to capture the subtleties of human interaction so perfectly that her novels continue to be immensely popular to this day. This 5-1/4″ tall, hard vinyl action figure comes with a book (Pride & Prejudice) and a writing desk with removable quill pen!
