Miss P. is still tucked away in the future. As for myself, I am very busy in real life. Nevertheless, I have discovered a new Victorian era resource that I just had to share with you. Titled the Encyclopedia of Social Reform and published in 1897, the book provides an account of the history of social reforms as determined by a committee of period experts at the end of the Victorian era. As such, it is something of a retrospective. Often, the language and comparisons chosen by the book’s authors reveal as much about themselves as they do about the issues at hand.
