    The further I got in this book, the more interested I became. It's very short and very narrow in scope (as the title suggests) but Lane cleverly interweaves the history of Bath, its appearance in Austen's novels, and Jane Austen's personal experiences with it. The contrast between Bath's portrayal in Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, written years apart but published at the same time, is striking when juxtaposed as it is here. Lane includes a period map/sketch of Bath that I wish were available as a foldout instead of as four book pages. Unfortunately, the narrowness of the subject matter suggests to me that its audience is probably similarly narrow--I suspect it will be of interest only to devotees of Jane Austen or those interested in the history of Bath who want a slightly different approach. 3.5 stars real rating, rounded to 4 because the final chapters captivated me.

    A nice little book. Even though it was written in 1988 and I'm sure there have been a lot of changes in Bath since then, it's nice to know where Jane Austen stayed and what she thought of it.

    Can someone please book me in for a surgery, I would like to have this book sewn onto my body. Oh Maggie Lane! I wish you had an internet presence so I could be your friend and follow you to the ends of the earth!This book shows the fascinating social customs of Georgian era Bath, but more than this, these customs are explored expressly in the context of Jane Austen. This is possibly the most niche book written in the English language.Lane highlights parts of Jane’s letters to Cassandra as well as discussing some of the finer, easily-missed nuances of the two Bath novels—Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. This book will guide you through ‘Shopping’, ‘Walks and Drives’ and ‘Public Entertainment’ as well as my favourite section ‘House-hunting’. You will discover why Sir Elliot prefers Camden place to the lower part of town and why Henrietta Musgrove would prefer a situation that does not involve Queen’s Square (which had grown out of fashion by the time Persuasion was written). I was fortunate enough to have visited Bath last year, staying in the ‘Miss Musgrove disapproved’ Queen’s Square where Jane Austen herself lived (!), and just a short walk away from the Jane Austen Centre. When Lane talks of Milsom Street or Pulteney Bridge, Bath Street, the Abbey, The Crescent or The Circus, I can picture them vividly from having walked there. It feels as if Lane has given me a priceless gift.This is by far the best book I have ever found in a book sale. That is no exaggeration, it truly is. I can’t believe someone was heartless enough to have forsaken it, and I can’t believe my good luck at having found it.Original Review Posted at: https://suspectnarglesblog.wordpress....

    Subtitle, bath in the life and times of Jane Austen. I saw this when I was visiting the Gay st. museum in Bath, and used it to decide which places to visit. As Jane books go, it doesn't really give me much more info about her, but it does have charming illustrations of the various places and gives good contemporary (to Jane) descriptions of the place. I'm enjoying it, but find the library's ILL policies frustrating: it came while I was on vac and I have one day to read it. Which means the loan was all of...2 weeks. Max.

    A very thorough investigation into the City of Bath in the time of Jane Austen. It is beautifully illustrated and written, covering Bath as a Spa Town and Jane's perception of it, both as illustrated through the characters in her novels and her own viewpoint. It should be required reading for all JA fans, visiting Bath.

    This is just a very little bok about one of the most beautiful cities in Europe - Bath, England - and its place in the life and times of Jane Austen. It's very well done and a quick read for anyone interested in either the place or the author.

    I purchased this book in the early 1990's during a trip to bath. It is chock full of useful information about that unique city.
