Description
This is the definitive history of the city of Brighton. Divided into five sections – Fishermen and Farmers, Princes and Palaces, Late Georgian, Victorian Marvels and Mysteries, Battle Scene and Transformation – it shows how Brighton grew from a small fishing village. For almost thirty years Musgrave was the director of the Royal Pavilion, the Brighton Library, Art Gallery and Museum. First published by Faber and Faber in 1970, this new edition includes an introduction by the late author’s son, Stephen.
Life in Brighton Mr Musgrave's book does full justice to Brighton's quality and complexity, with a breadth of interest and erudition thoroughly worthy of its subject. TIMES>
