1 Adburgham, Alison Shopping in Style - London from the Restoration to Edwardian Elegance
London Thames and Hudson 1979 0500012059 / 9780500012055 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A Near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from slight age toning to page edges) with near Fine dustjacket (Fine apart from a hint of wear to lower front edge) which is not price clipped. 192 pages. 174 illustrations. In the two centuries since Adam Smith described England as a nation of shopkeepers, there have been many analyses of the importance of retail trade to the wealth of the nation. Yet few writers have explored the part played by shops and shopping in the everyday life of all the citizens of England's capital city, from poorest to richest. This book is a history of retailing in which trade statistics have given way to a many sided story of shopkeepers and shopworkers, shopping customs and customers. A fully illustrated social history which follows the topographical development of London and its shops from the Restoration to the period before the First World War. **** NOT EX LIB ****
