George Allen & Unwin, London - first edition, 1971. hardcover, 8 3/4" x 5 1/2", with dust jacket. Ours is an tired ex-library copy in transparent protectivive covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. Some pencil under-lining & notes to Contents pages. Shelf-wear to boards. GOOD book in GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Maroon cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, maroon tinted top edges, 57 b&w illustrations (drawings & photos), index. This extremely readable book sets out to describe the conditions - psychological, physical, emotional, legal, social, economic - under which more than half of the population of the UK and the USA lived during the 64 years of social adventure which was the Victorian era. The author incorporates the life stories of many famous and not so famous women who lived through that ambivalent age, including some who helped change those conditions.
