Making use of every possible contemporary source-diaries, memoirs, advice books,government papers, almanacs, even the register of Patents - Liza Picard presentsan entralling picture of how life in London was really lived in the decade between 1660 and 1670: the houses and streets, gardens and parks, cooking, clothes and jewellery, cosmetics, hairdressing, housework, laundry and shopping,medicine and dentistry, sex, education, hobbies, etiquette, law and crime, religion andpopular beliefs. The London of 300 years ago is brought wonderfully (and sometimes horrifyingly) to life.
