It depicts, further, the various classes of society, the fashions, the entertainment, and the social institutions of the time.

--- excerpt from book's back cover.
Condition is very good pages 539 and 2 for notes which are blank, all are clean and clear. There is browning on outside edges and very minimal shelf wear, inside first page has coffee ring but with the age of this book it is in excellent condition. Great for the social history buff or for the researcher as this book leans more to a reference book of the 18 century times.
