“The dusk spreads from the river. Candles are lit all over London. The clatter of shuttering echoes and answers as every house in the Georgian metropolis fortifies itself against the advancing dark.”
And so begins this atmospheric volume on living in Georgian England, the England of Eliza Bennet and Mr Darcy, of dances at Almack’s and exquisitely decorated country houses.
With chapters entitled “His and Hers”, “Wallpaper and Taste” and “A Nest of Comforts” Amanda Vickery brings the English Georgian household to life with engaging literary style and interior illustrations.
