Description: Here is seventeenth-century London as you've never seen it. Using diaries, almanacs, newspapers, government papers, personal documents and more, Liza Picard brilliantly portrays the human side of both ordinary daily living and catastrophic events. From the splendor of lovely English gardens to pollution filled air and streets clogged with waste and rubbish; from graceful living, fashionable clothes, and elegant decor, to medical risks, plagues, accidents and early deaths, this unique book describes the simple pleasures and the overwhelming difficulties of the time. Discover the craft of cabinet-making, the art of embroidery, the practice of the arts, and the revival of theater; the importance of astrology, magic, and superstition; the labor of housework and shopping, the pleasures of music and dancing, the hazards of sex, the limitations of education, the nature of the laws, the conflicting views of the churches, and the extremes of poverty and wealth. With meticulous detail and vivid descriptions "Restoration London" takes you back to another time.
