Product Description

Publisher: Workman

Author: Gail MacColl and Carol McD. Wallace

The book that inspired the PBS hit, Downton Abbey.

From the Gilded Age until 1914, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles - just like Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, the first of the Downton Abbey characters Jullian Fellowes was inspired to create after reading To Marry an English Lord. Filled with vivid personalities, gossipy anecdotes, grand houses, and a wealth of period detail-plus photographs, illustrations, quotes, and the finer points of Victorian and Edwardian etiquette - To Marry an English Lord is social history at its liveliest and most accessible.
