Drawing on contemporary texts from the British Library collections, this book illuminates the ideas and opinions of the Georgian era, 1714 to 1830, and reveals many details of everyday life. The book is in four parts - on homes and gardens; shopping and fashion; culture and ideas; and leisure pursuits - with essays on topics ranging from architecture to dancing, all richly illustrated with reproductions of paintings, prints and pages from popular journals, theatre playbills and dance manuals.
