The House of Hadrian Book for Young Ladies is now available for your mobile phone or iPad.
This book is written in the Victoriana style and returns to an age of elegance and long walks through landscaped parks in fashionable dresses. Although written in that style, and in keeping with the attitudes of that time, the advice and information is as relevant today as it was 150 years ago.
It covers all aspects of grooming and includes an extensive list of home made cosmetics. Beautifully bound in cloth covers, this book will be a treasured gift for years to come.
Available for $34.95 AUD (p and h $8.80 in Aust), A4 40 pp, hand bound or $12 e-book for e-readers and mobile phones. Chapters include the art of conversation, deportment, education, toilette, recreations for young ladies, correspondence and the art of courtship.

'If young gentlemen are expected there is a need to take particular care when dressing.'
