SYNOPSIS: A new reference just published! This is an invaluable resource for any writer who sets their work in Nineteenth Century England. From the basics of everyday life to major historical events of the era, this book covers such topics as Body Snatchers (grave robbers,) Minted Coins, Home Remedies and Sample Menus for dinner parties. Because of the large time span this book covers, each topic is only touched upon. But there is an extensive bibliography at the end of every section for further research. Complete with illustrations, this book also includes a list of museums in the British Isles that feature Regency and Victorian materials. A long-anticipated book by me, it is finally here for you, too!
