Everyone knows that Bath was the /Queen of English watering places' in the eighteenth century and that what has been dubbed as a 'Georgian summer' represented the most brilliant period in the city's history. Moreover, what has been written on the subject of gambling and vice in Georgian Bath fits largely into the context of a literary kind of history that concentrates on famous visitors and the presence of a fashionable company. This essay begins with a traditional focus on the well known/ but goes on to explore alternative approaches that extend the scope of the subject into a broader social and economic analysis and includes the unknown people, outside the ranks of fashionable society, who formed the bulk of the population of Bath. 204pp. Index.
