1 6264 PULLAR, Phillipa Gilded Butterflies : The Rise and Fall of the London Season
Hardcover Hamish Hamilton: London; 1978; First British Edition B&W Illustrations: Very Good+ in Very Good dust wrapper 
Spine ends lightly bumped, clean purple boards faintly faded at edges; no binding problems, pages clean and bright. Unclipped dust wrapper lightly edgeworn and creased, one tiny closed tear.; Profusely illustrated with black and white drawings, photographs, and paintings. This history "has a serious intent but is also an entertainment. Pullar has caught and analyzed the manners of society during four centuries" including the author's experiences during her own two seasons. "It is doubtful whether the London season now has any significance, although as the author says 'snobbery is as intrinsic to the British as it ever was when Elizabeth I was rampant, or James sold titles in return for gold.' But its history is both fascinating and salutary."
