Product description

In June 1858, soon after the new Court of Divorce began sitting, Henry Oliver Robinson brought a divorce suit on the grounds of his wife's adultery, submitting her diary as evidence. Read aloud in court, the diary was more sensational than anything in contemporary fiction. Kate Summerscale tells the story of romance, scandal, the boundaries of privacy, and a diary in which Isabella Robinson 'seemed to have invited, and lovingly recorded, her own disgrace'.Slightly off-mint.
