The Rise & Fall of a Regency Dandy: The Life and Times of Scrope Berdmore Davies.
Scrope Davies - dashing dandy, womanizer, athlete, companion of Byron and Shelley, all-around social ornament - ran out of money in 1820 and fled to the continent. He left a trunk full of papers at Barclays Bank that was not rediscovered until 1975. This book explores Davies' life and shares information gleaned from the treasures found in the lost trunk.
