 Edwards, In the steps of Jane Austen
Lane tells us that Jane Austen’s “travels took her through fourteen counties, some of them repeatedly; she knew three cities intimately, and she was acquainted with many stretches of the English coastline.” Anne-Marie Edwards in her book, In the Steps of Jane Austen, provides just the guide for the serious Janeite.
In the Steps of Jane Austen is the first American edition of Edwards’ work; however, the book was first published in 1979 in England and has gone through three editions there.
From my own experience with In the Steps of Jane Austen, I find that the maps are fairly simple and accurate, and the discussions in each chapter explain succinctly what the tourist might encounter of the actual places where Jane Austen went during her lifetime.
