SYNOPSIS: Although this book is a dictionary, it is filled with useful information about life in London in 1888.  Charles Dickens has compiled facts, figures and definitions that will infuse your novels with those historical details your readers love.  For instance, find out Omnibus schedules--the times and routes they ran, as well as the fares for each line.  Learn the names of hospitals, their specialties, and the names of the physicians on staff.  Of course, theatres might be more applicable to your story line.  Included here are the names of the theatres, along with the types of seating available and the cost of each section.  Even if you're not writing a book set in 1888, this dictionary is a researcher's delight and worth reading just for fun.
