No spine or cover creases, bumped bottom corner; faint edgewear; looks unread. A very nice copy.; Convinced that his fiancee is playing him false, Sir Harry Hawthorne disguises himself as a woman in order to keep her under his watchful eye, with unforeseen complications.; 'A light and lively romp written with humor and grace...in a tone just right for comedy and romance. For readers new to the Regency novel which devolved from Jane Austen via Georgette Heyer, Miss Darby's Duenna could be taken as a textbook. It details many of the places and customs familiar to readers of this sub-genre. From the weak lemonade and stale bread at Almack's Assembly to the thinly sliced ham at Vauxhall Gardens; from the betting books at White's Club to Covent Garden, we're given a tour of the early nineteenth century London of the 'beau monde.' All the while, we're treated to a classic Regency romp.'
