Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Victorian England measured social acceptability in terms of the number of servants employed in a household. It is perhaps unsuprising then that this frequently overlooked body of workers actually formed the largest occupational group in the country at the end of the nineteenth century. In this illustrated account, Pamela Horn draws upon a wealth of contemporary sources and 'servants' books' as well as personal reminiscences by servants and employers. She presents a comprehensive record of recruitment and training; the duties expected by servants, and the wide range of conditions under which they worked, some of which led to happy retirement, others to prostitution or squalid death. It is a compelling picture of a vanished social system. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Victorian England measured social acceptability in terms of the number of servants employed in a household. This frequently overlooked body of workers actually formed the largest occupational group in the country by the end of the 19th century. In this account, the author draws on contemporary sources, including "servants' books" and personal reminiscences of servants and employers, to offer a record of recruitment and training; the duties expected of servants; and the range of conditions under which they worked - some of which led to happy retirement, others to prostitution or squalid death. Complemented with photographs, "Punch" illustrations and other ephemera, the book offers a picture of this vanished social system.
Über den Autor: Pamela Horn has lectured for over twenty years at Oxford Brookes University as well as being an external examiner for a number of educational institutions. She has also written Life Below Stairs. The Victorian Country Child, Ladies of the Manor and Women in the 1920's.
