One of the best places to talk about the Regency with fellow enthusiasts is on the Regency list. There are all sorts of interesting people on the list: readers, writers, librarians, in fact anyone with an interest in the Regency.

Members come from all over the world, and chat includes discussions of favourite books, history and films.

If you want to know anything, a question on the list will usually provide you with the answer. Have you forgotten the title of a favourite book? Are you trying the recall the name of the actor who played Mr Darcy in the 1980 miniseries? Or are you wondering what a pelisse is? The Regency list is the place to find out.

Isn't a pelisse the dress worn by medieval women ?

Laurence Brown said...

Jeff, Yes it was indeed. It is still used in classic French fashion.

Hi - A friend reminded me that this group exists and has for a long time. My name is Teresa DesJardien, a published Regency author, and I may even have belonged here once upon a time...? Anyway, I have a product that might be of particular interest to people here, so I'm being forward and a bit of a chit, and barging in tell you JANE AUSTEN SHOPPED HERE is now available through Amazon and other fine retailers. I spent 25+ years researching the streets and buildings of London, weary of constantly having to look them up to be sure they hadn't burned down or otherwise been destroyed during the Regency era. It has all been compiled into a 980 page resource, and is full of streets and all, but also info on food, theaters, doctors, and all manner of things to do with Jane Austen's era. If you like, please have a look at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. for more information: 9781945458224/HC, and 9781945458217/PB. Thanks for your tolerance, and I look forward to visiting here.
