Originally published in 1851, this volume was created to mark the centenary of The Great Exhibition, an event which came to epitomise the Victorian age through its celebration of British manufacturing and cultural achievements. Through a highly readable narrative, together with numerous illustrations, the reader is given an insight into the contemporary context of the Exhibition and the excitement it engendered in the general public. Highly informative, as well as being accessible, the text contains appendices, abundant quotations, and is notable for the inclusion of Queen Victoria's Exhibition Journal. This fascinating book will be of value to anyone with an interest in nineteenth-century British history.
