New York: Simon & Schuster, 1993. 416 Pages Indexed. Three lines of pencil owner's name on front endpaper. Otherwise an as new book with a faultless interior. Nineteenth-century England was long ago and far away. Anglophiles and readers of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Anthony Trollope, the Brontes, and Thomas Hardy know that the intricacies of English daily life are a puzzle. This unique book, which decodes the rituals of the aristocrat and the commoner, is a godsend. ot a history and not a collection of dry footnotes, this is a book of engaging and vivid description that transports you to nineteenth-century England and reveals the facets of daily life as Dickens and Jane Austen and Trollope -- and their readers-actually experienced them. Here are accounts of such major institutions as the dinner party, the army, marriage, the London season, the universities, and proper etiquette. Learn why the cavalry was chic, how a hostess ran a house party at one of the grand country estates, why young ladies avoided second sons, what the tripos and a double first were at Cambridge and Oxford, and when to shout Tally Ho! at a fox hunt In addition, discover the grim reality of farm life in Thomas Hardy's Wessex and the truth about debt and hard times in Dickens's London..
