Restoration London

From Poverty To Pets, From Medicine To Magic, From Slang To Sex, From Wallpaper To Women's Rights

Liza Picard

St. Martin's Press

How did you clean your teeth in the 1600s?
What make-up did you wear? What pets did you keep?
 
Making use of every possible contemporary source, Liza Picard presents an engrossing picture of daily life in London in the decade between 1660 and 1670: the streets, houses and gardens; cooking, housework, laundry and shopping; medicine, sex education, hobbies and etiquette; law and crime, religion and popular belief. The London of 300 years ago is brought vividly (and sometimes horrifyingly) to life.
