Juliet Gardiner - The Edwardian Country House (2nd Hand Hardback)
The Edwardian Country House gives an insight into the romance and reality of Edwardian society and evokes the "golden" years before World War I.
In this illustrated book, Juliet Gardiner explores the key events in the social calendar of a wealthy Edwardian family - a fancy dress ball, a society dinner party, a village fete, a musical evening, a shooting party - from not only the points of view of the family, but also from that of the servants.
Detailed descriptions of the day-to-day activities involved in running a country house are told through diary extracts, letters, advice manuals and recipes, while special craft features enable readers to create a range of authentic Edwardian delights for themselves.
Providing a look at a period that was glorious for a few but certainly not all, this is a book on Edwardian life as seen through 21st Century eyes.
