1 Flanders, Judith The Victorian House - Domestic Life from Childbirth to Deathbed
London Harper Collins 2003 0007131887 / 9780007131884 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. lii + 476 pages. 36 main illustrations and 55 illustrations in the text. Coloured pictorial endpapers. The Victorian age is both recent and unimaginably distant. In the most prosperous and technologically advanced nation in the world, people carried slops up and down stairs; buried meat in fresh earth to prevent mould forming; wrung sheets out in boiling water with their bare hands. This drudgery was routinely performed by the parents of people still living. Running water, stoves, flush toilets - even toilet paper - arrived slowly throughout the century; and most were luxuries available only to the prosperous. An incisive portrait of Victorian domestic, life portrayed through a collage of diaries, letters, advice books, magazines and paintings, the author shows how social history is built up of tiny domestic details. Laid out like a house, following the story of daily life from room to room. **** NOT EX LIB **** **** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.885 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST **** 
Price: 10.00 GBP
