I have just bought a book called Journal of a Georgian Gentleman, by Mike Rendell.
It looks fascinating and I will add a further blog when I have finished it.
Mike is very fortunate that he had a large amount of material handed down through his family – almost a time capsule.
It is an extraordinary snapshot of a previously unknown 18th century life and contains wonderful detail which makes it a must for any student of the period and of social history.
Many of the ‘Musings of Richard Hall’ can be found in Mike’s Posterous blog at
I predict this will be come a ‘must follow’ blog!
