Lives of the English Rakes.
Born in the raucous days of Charles II's Restoration, the rake lives on in our imaginations. The romantic view of the rake falls short of reality, as Linnane shows in this highly entertaining tour of the rogues, lechers, and profligates of the 18th & 19th centuries. The Earl of Rochester, the Duke of Buckingham, Colonel Charteris, and others famous and infamous are intimately portrayed. 2010 Paper. List price in Pounds Stirling 9.99. NEW. $10.00
