SKU: 15014

A vivid portrait of a talented woman who lived an incredibly interesting life, both as an author and simply as an observer and participant in Georgian England life. Growing up she hobnobbed with the likes of Dr Johnson, Garrick and Reynolds. She served in the court of Queen Charlotte, was in Paris during Napoleon's rise to power, and wrote some of the most entertaining diaries to be found from that or any era. This book is used but very clean. Chatto & Windus, London. 1998. Hb, Dj. USED. $8.00
