By the way the Pride and Prejudice edition I linked to is an annotated edition I would love to check out.  Also I got the word list here (which has excerpts with each word) and was inspired by this series of counting books for babies.  The prints in the illustrations come from Regency Period inspired products I found online.  Click on the illustration for info.
