Dead Yesterday: An Edwardian Childhood

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

An 'account of an Edwardian upbringing with two Victorian families as background' is how David Footman describes his latest book. Dead Yesterday, however, is a great deal more than what this modest description suggests; it is a mixture of biography, reminiscence and social history in miniature. The author has created a rich and fascinating tapestry of English country life spanning four generations. Into it he has woven a wealth of detail on the people, places and events which shaped the evolution of two families, the Footmans and the Kennards. Drawing on diaries, letters and other documents, Mr. Footman portrays his ancestors and their way of life in a manner that recalls Dickens.

Dust jacket fair/good, has a few small tears along the edges, boards good.
Pages very good, very little edge wear.
Inscription on flyleaf, possibly author's.
Highlights on inside of jacket.
