Reader's note

This beautiful blue book from publisher Smith, Elder & Co. adds a real sense of class to any library! Mrs. Elizabeth Gaskell writes of Cranford, loosely based on a small town in Cheshire and the characters who live there. The following is taken from the first chapter - The Cranford ladies have only an occasional little quarrel, spirited out in a few peppery words and angry jerks of the head; just enough to prevent the even tenor of their lives from becoming too flat. Their dress is very independent of fashion; as they observe, “What does it signify how we dress here at Cranford, where everybody knows us?” And if they go from home, their reason is equally cogent, “What does it signify how we dress here, where nobody knows us?” The materials of their clothes are, in general, good and plain, and most of them are nearly as scrupulous as Miss Tyler, of cleanly memory; but I will answer for it, the last gigot, the last tight and scanty petticoat in wear in England, was seen in Cranford—and seen without a smile. - full of old time charm and wit!
