Take a romp through the "long" 18th century up to the death of George IV in 1830 in this collection of 25 short tales. Marvel at the Queen's Ass, gaze at the celestial heavens through the eyes of the past and be amazed by the equestrian feats of the Norwich Nymph. Journey to the debauched French court at Versailles, travel to Covent Garden and take your seat in a box at the theatre and, afterwards, join the mile-high club in a new-fangled hot air balloon. Meet actresses, whores and high-born ladies, politicians, inventors, royalty and criminals as we travel through the Georgian era in all its glorious and gruesome glory. In roughly chronological order, covering the reign of the four Georges, 1714-1830 and set within the framework of the main events of the era like the astronomical discoveries of the Herschels, botanist Sir Joseph Banks and Captain Cook's discoveries, new railways and a vaccine for smallpox, these tales are accompanied by over 100 beautiful full page colour illustrations. 17.78 x 25.4cm. 170 pages.
