For more than thirty years Deirdre Le Faye, one of the world's leading authorities on Jane Austen, has been gathering and organising every single piece of information available about the Austen family before, during and after Jane's lifetime. Her unique chronology, containing some ten thousand entries, is now available in paperback. For the first time, those interested in Jane Austen can discover where she was and what she was doing at many precise moments of her life. The entries, many taken from hitherto unexplored and unpublished documents, are presented in a clear and readable form and each item of information is linked to its source. The volume includes family trees for the extended Austen and Knight families from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. This is a key work of reference that every scholar and reader of Austen will find fascinating and indispensable.

Review:

Review of the hardback: 'It is extremely thorough, like a form of advanced surveillance ... the effect ... is of an extraordinarily detailed and rich sense of daily life going on before, during and after Jane Austen's time ... meticulous ... the layout of the book is dazzlingly clear and efficient.' The Times Literary Supplement
