Georgian Cheltenham by Edith Humphris
Book DescriptionFirst published in 1928 as "At Cheltenham Spa"; or, "Georgians in a Georgian Town", "Georgian Cheltenham" is a celebration of this historic spa town at the height of its fashionable splendour. Starting with a brief history from roughly the Roman Conquest up to the accession of George III, it focuses on the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, beginning with the visit of King George in 1788, which really brought it to prominence. As a spa town it was visited by thousands seeking the solace of its healing waters, but as a pleasure resort it attracted some of the most distinguished and/or fashionable people of the day, such as Edward Jenner, Mrs Siddons, Charles James Fox, the Prince Regent, Edmund Kean, Lord Byron, the Duke of Wellington and Sir Walter Scott, all of whose visits are catalogued here. Illustrated with pictures of both people and places, it is a must-read book for anybody interested in the history of this elegant spa town.
