Bygone London Life: Pictures From A Vanished Past

{Spyderwort Classic Reprints}

G. L. Apperson

Originally published in 1903

In Bygone London Life, antiquary and social historian G.L. Apperson gives us glimpses of a day-to-day London that was already long gone when his book was first published in 1903—the raucous, vibrant city of Elizabethan eating-houses, literary taverns, private museums, mincing Restoration fops, and rowdy Georgian rakes. Here are types and institutions from the late sixteenth to the early nineteenth centuries: playwrights and sedan-chair operators; coffee-house wits and night watchmen; “pretty fellows” and shoeblacks; kickshaws, macaronies, ordinaries, bucks and bloods, and cabinets of curiosities—a kaleidoscope of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century life for the historian, the historical novelist, or anyone who takes delight in the gone-but-not-forgotten past of a great modern city.

G. L. Apperson (1857–1937) was a British school inspector and man of letters. He was editor of The Antiquary from 1899 to 1915, and a major contributor to the Oxford English Dictionary.
