Capital Capital

Does anyone else’s copy have all the capitalized words mine does? I just find it amusing what gets a capital (it’s not every noun, as in German). Here’s one:

“[Lady Denham’s] Character served to lighten the tediousness of a long Hill, or a heavy bit of road, and to give the visiting Young Lady a suitable Knowledge of the Person with whom she might now expect to be daily associating.”

It might be part of why I find the writing so funny – the capitals make everything a bit portentous but the sentiments are funny so it all seems more comic on contrast.

“She was as thoroughly amiable as she was lovely, and since having had the advantage of their Sanditon Breezes, that Loveliness was complete.”
