Bill Bryson's room-by-room journey of discovery around his home, an old rectory in Norfolk, was a bestseller on first publication. This handsome new edition of his chronicle of domestic history is illustrated with over 300 photographs, reproductions and advertisements. Delving into topics such as electricity, food preservation, crinolines and toilets, Bryson reveals that there is a huge amount of history and interest - and even a little danger - in every home.
