  • "Essays provide a view of British life during the nineteenth century."
  • "For every frustrated reader of the great nineteenth-century English novels of Austen, Trollope, Dickens, or the Brontës, who has ever wondered whether a duke outranked an earl, when to yell "Tally-ho!" at a fox hunt, or how one landed in debtor's prison, here is a "delightful reader's companion that lights up the literary dark" (The New York Times). This guide clarifies the sometimes bizarre maze of rules, regulations, and customs that governed everyday life in Victorian England. Author Daniel Pool provides countless intriguing details (did you know that "plums" in Christmas plum pudding were actually raisins?) on the Church of England, sex, Parliament, dinner parties, country house visiting, and a host of other aspects of nineteenth-century English life--both "upstairs" and "downstairs". A glossary reveals the meaning and significance of terms ranging from "ague" to "wainscoting," the specifics of the currency system, and countless other curiosities of the day."
  • "Filled with lively essays and a glossary of obscure terms, this unique reference--organized by subject--is a practical and entertaining compendium of information and insight on this time of debtor prisons, bedlam, and that wonderful disease of sense and sensibility, "putrid fever". Illustrations."
