9780140240436: High Society in the Regency Period: 1788-1830

'Full of wonderful social titbits and interesting pieces of information' - Amanda Foreman, "Mail On Sunday". The Regency is synonymous with a style unique in the English monarchy's history. A time of transition and paradox, elegance and vulgarity; when Lady Caroline Lamb stabbed herself for love of Byron and Stephenson invented the locomotive; when a mistress cost the equivalent of GBP100,000 a year and a farm labourer kept a family on 15 shillings a week. Murray chronicles the life of the beau monde during this extraordinary period. The book is lavishly illustrated with satirical prints of the period.
