Britannia Mews by MARGERY SHARP (w/Jacket!) 1946


Britannia Mews. By Margery Sharp, Little, Brown and Co., Boston, 1946.


Fiction Novel - Historical

Vintage from the 1940s


A passionate heroine defies the English class system in this novel set in 1875 London—perfect for lovers of Edith Wharton and Downton Abbey. A novel about social manners and mores reminiscent of Edith Wharton, this story of love, family, and the price one must pay for throwing off the shackles of convention is also a witty and incisive dissection of the “upstairs, downstairs” English class system of the last two centuries.


Sharp wrote twenty-six novels, three of which—Britannia Mews, Cluny Brown, and The Nutmeg Tree—were made into feature films, and fourteen children’s books, including The Rescuers, which was adapted into two Disney animated films.


Nice condition with a secure binding and clean pages. The jacket has small edge tears. Hardcover book.
