Jane Austen by the numbers

Thanks to The Guardian newspaper lots of obscure details are available to avid readers in easily understood charts. Did you know that Mr Elton only says 1924 words in Emma?

How Rich was Mr Darcy?

As a frivolous summer entertainment, delve into Could Mr Darcy afford a stately home today?, an investigation by Britain's The Telegraph newspaper.
