Brolliology

A History of the Umbrella in Life and Literature

Marion Rankine

Once a mark of royalty designed to shield pharaohs from the sun, umbrellas have also been used to signal class distinctions and as status symbols, talismans and defensive weapons. This illustrated volume explores their history and cultural significance, and examines their treatment in literature, art and film, including 120 appearances in the works of Dickens.
