Two volumes. Modern green buckram. 8vo. 439 & 455pp. Second edition. Ex-Library. Illustrated. A popular history of this era with an emphasis on the fashions, customs and entertainments of the upper class. It was first published in 1845. There are chapters on: banquets and food, manners, "stars" of fashion, habitations, carriages and other modes of transport, amusements, costume, theatrical performances, fashionable watering places, Bath and Beau Nash, and much more. The work is illustrated with 15 fine engraved portraits of celebrities including Charles II, the Countess of Carlisle, the Duke of Buckingham, the Duchess of Devonshire, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Queensberry and Beau Brummell. A very good set in attractive cloth bindings with a minimum of wear. The only library markings are gilt shelf numbers at the bottom of each spine. The text is very good with some light foxing and wear. 6 pages in the middle of Vol. 1 have been reinforced with Scotch tape at the top. Each volume has a bookplate at front, a small perforated stamp at the foot of the title page, a tiny ink number at the top of the Preface page, a circulation sheet and card pocket on the rear endpapers. These are the only library markings to the text which is fine and bright for its age. Scarce. Postage extra. N° de ref. de la librería 5194
