Description

Life in Regency and Early Victorian Times paints a vivid picture of British life during the period 1800 to 1850. It was a remarkable time, one where change and innovation ran through the whole of society, from the arts, science and architecture to the smallest details of everyday dress, entertainment and manners. As flamboyant dandies held court in fashionable London clubs, others flocked to the booming health resorts. Eventually, the decadence of George IV's reign gave way to the more sober Victorian era. Originally published in 1926, E Beresford Chancellor's survey of the first half of the nineteenth century is a highly readable history, bringing the period to life with a witty, informed style and numerous contemporary illustrations.
