Even those with just a passing interest in Bronte orliterary research can become trapped in this book for hours.Looking up one entry leads to looking up another, and thenanother." "This book has references to the important and thearcane and the obscure, references to places the Brontes visited,people they knew; in short, everything."
(Bronte Studies, March 2008)
"Approximately 2,000 meticulously researched entries arealphabetically arranged in clear, page-wide columns, accompanied bysixty carefully selected illustrations. Although intended as a workof reference, the authors' lively style and 'originalliterary judgements' make for an entertaining read. Ahandsome volume which will be a valuable reference tool for manyyears to come, for the general reader and scholar alike."
