Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Price Clipped.
In this delightful collection of pictures and writings from the period, by turns poignant, amusing and nostalgic, Antony and Peter Miall have recreated the sheltered and genteel atmosphere which permeated the life of the middle class Victorian child. They explore every facet of this very special, child-centred existence preparations for the new baby, life in the nursery and schoolroom, the trappings of the nursery itself and the industry that supplied them, the vital role of the nanny and governess and all the hazards, the trials and the pleasures, of growing up in that far-off and privileged world.
