From poverty to pets, from medicine to magic, from slang to sex, from wallpaper to women's rights. A glorious portrait of life in London from 1660-1670 by the bestselling author of ELIZABETH'S LONDON. Making use of every possible contemporary source - diaries, memoirs, advice books, government papers, almanacs, even the Register of Patents - Liza Picard presents an enthralling picture of how life in London was really lived in the 1600s: the houses and streets, gardens and parks, cooking, clothes and jewellery, cosmetics, hairdressing, housework, laundry and shopping, medicine and dentistry, sex, education, hobbies, etiquette, law and crime, religion and popular beliefs.

Return of the Stuart's.

Poor grammar, lack of research. Nothing new here. Just a well worn history book. Lazy.
Do some research and give us some interesting facts that everyone didn't know before.
Excellent reader. Made the book listenable, till the frustration set in with all of the above.
Re-write and do sone research instead of gleaning the work of others.
