Summary
"Regency England is, at least in the popular imagination, the world of Pride and Prejudice and Vanity Fair. Elegant terraces were populated by beautiful women and handsome men who read the works of Byron and Keats and discussed the latest offering by Constable to be seen at the Royal Academy. But in the shadows of these upper-class pursuits there lurked a pulsating urban underworld where crime and vice of every kind flourished."--BOOK JACKET. "The Regency Underworld takes us into this often forgotten world, and draws on a wide range of contemporary sources, including unpublished notebooks, to provide a vivid picture of criminals at work during the period 1800-30. It was a world of sometimes startling contrasts in which the aristocracy, even royalty, rubbed shoulders with all manner of crooks, vice-pedlars and 'unfortunates'. This revised edition has a new introduction by the author, and is extensively re-illustrated, with a variety of contemporary prints, portraits and cartoons to bring the period and the characters to life."--BOOK JACKET
