5.0 out of 5 stars Entrancing glimpses of Regency life, 27 Oct 2003

This review is from: Mrs. Hurst Dancing: And Other Scenes from Regency Life, 1812-23 (Hardcover)
The sketches in this book were done between 1812-1823, and give a fascinating picture of Regency life. Diana and her sisters seem to have led very vigorous lives, and to have had far more variety of occupations than you get in, say,the novels of Jane Austen. In this book you see young ladies riding donkeys, riding horses, digging up plants in the garden, fishing, bathing in the river, and doing all sorts of things. One of my favourite pictures shows the sisters trying to geta horse up a steep embankment, one is pulling on the reins, the other two are pushing from behind. Another one shows them getting stuck in the mud while walking to a dinner party, in another you see them experimenting with electricity. Diana Sperling had a very distinctive style of drawing, with spindly figures and a wonderful eye for humorous detail. This book should fascinate anyone who is at all interested in the Regency period. A real gem of a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Bargain, 24 Jan 2012
This review is from: Mrs. Hurst Dancing: And Other Scenes from Regency Life, 1812-23 (Hardcover)
When I saw this book on sale for 1p plus modest postage I thought that it was too good to be true, but it arrived almost by return of post in very good condition. So pleased that I did not buy it for nearly £20.00 from another website!
