Regency Revelations: The Lost Diary of a Dandy

By Mark Hill

This diary was found by accident with books bought on Amazon and covers 2 years of the life of John Margesson from 1831 to 1833. This lively and entertaining lecture explores his life, obsessions, observations of Regency London and a scandal which resulted in his exile. Etchings, illustrations and photographs are used in this lecture about the beautifully copper plated journal.
