Overview

Covering the period from the 1630's to the 1690's, this delightful book continues the style of the other two in the series. It follows the fortunes of a fashionable family through three generations. Clothes were vital to their success and in their diaries we gain insight into the pleasures and problems of fashionable life during such toublesome times. Lucy Townsend writes about the lavish entertainment given in honor of King Charles I. Her son comments on the Battle of Edgehill and her grandson deals with the after effects of the Great Fire of London. Never the main actors, the Townsends record their reactions to events played out before them and so let us see the concerns, preoccupations, and clothes of the world of high fahion in the Stuart period.
