Advance praise for The Time Traveler's Guide to Regency Britain
"British historian Mortimer, who has already struck gold with delightful guides to Elizabethan and medieval Britain, takes on the Regency. Deliciously revealing research... No reader should miss his take on the era's hygiene, diet, medicine, treatment of women, fashion, travel, theater, and music. There was even a musical superstar: Beethoven. Anglophiles will love it all. Everything you ever wanted to know about Regency life."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Mortimer walks readers through the cities, towns, and rural landscape of Britain as if presenting a down-to-earth, how-to guide for time-travelers to the era. The sounds, smells, textures, and nightscapes are brought to incredibly vivid life, fully immersing readers into the quotidien worlds of everyone from the monarchy, aristocracy, and landed gentry to the middle classes, working classes, and the destitute. Written in very accessible language, this is sure to be a favorite for history lovers, historical fiction readers, and fans of all sorts of travelogues."-- "Booklist"
