Through the Keyhole: Sex, Scandal and the Secret Life of the Country House.
This well-researched scholarly work dives into aristocratic scandals of the Georgian period (18th and early 19th centuries). Lives were both made and demolished by scandalous behavior during this period. Primary sources and endnotes satisfy the most serious scholar, but the book reads like a series of novellas, making it well worth your time even if you know the story. In other words, you won't want to skip any chapters. Period illustrations on full color glossy plates. 1st ed. The History Press, Gloucestershire. 2015. Hb, Dj. NEW. $18.00
