The encyclopedia of the Victorian world : a reader's companion to the people, places, events, and everyday life of the Victorian era by Melinda Corey( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Encyclopedia of the Victorian World is the first encyclopedia to cover the entire world during a period of astounding achievement and change: the reign of Great Britain's Queen Victoria, from 1837 to 1901. While focused on Britain, the book's scope is universal, with entries that represent nearly every nation and region and every field of human endeavor - politics, art, literature, music, science, philosophy, war, business, recreation, architecture, design - as well as everyday life. Here you'll find not only familiar names like Charles Dickens and Benjamin Disraeli but also lesser-known people like scientist Joseph Lister, whose name now adorns mouthwash bottles, or the Earl of Cardigan, whose name will be forever be associated with the Charge of the Light Brigade and the button-down sweater. From cholera to colonies, Lincoln to Lourdes, and Punch to the Punjab, The Encyclopedia of the Victorian world is the one-stop guide to the Nineteenth century
