Books and other Resources

Post by tyler_roi » Tue Jul 11, 2017 11:01 pm

Did anyone have any particularly juicy resources for London of this era? I've got a shortlist but I'm always on the look out for more!

Here's mine:
What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew by Daniel Pool (extra fluff and flavour)
King of Heists by J. North Conway (how to commit crimes and get away with it in America and the era)
Strangers by Graham Robb (sexual morays and prejudice)
and, finally, just about anything by Henry Mayhew in his series, especially London's Underworld

Interesting, thanks for sharing.
This site is better than the others in the web, imo. I can find vogueplay-com-br-show-ball right there. That's only because there are a lot of them in the internet.

If you're interested in the Bone Wars period, which offers quite a bit of adventuring potential, I suggest the Biodviersty Library. They've got a collection of primary documents by Cope and Marsh here: ... n/BoneWars
