This review is from: Regency Recollections: Captain Gronow's Guide to Life in London and Paris (Hardcover)
Christopher Summerville has here collected and edited some of Captain Gornow's memoirs, particularly relating to the Regency period. The book is divided into four sections, each with an introduction by Summerville giving some context to the following selection. the anecdotes are varied, but good contemporary account (although written some years after the events in question) of life in the Regency period. This edition also includes a number of black and white plates.

Gornow was a man of a 'good' but unexceptional Welsh family, who fought in the Peninsular War and at Waterloo and became one of London's fashionable elite.
