The Complete ServantThe Complete Servant by Samuel Adams

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Every Regency writer NEEDS TO READ THIS.

It's not just advice for servants and explanations of their duties, although that in itself is brilliant. But it has recipes, and weights and measures, and HACKNEY FARES IN LONDON including a table of fares from the major theaters to various locations, and information on the London post, and where the mail-coaches leave from for outlying parts... THIS IS YOUR SECRET WEAPON FOR AUTHENTICITY.

note: free on Google Books.
