About the book
A funny and beautiful gift book for the adult - (though not quite grown-up) - market. Celebrated inventor of the double-gusset underpant and inveterate traveller, Lady 'Bulldog' Burton's previously unpublished diaries (Volume 1) provide a fascinating account of the grand tour of Europe that she and her maid Jinks undertook together in the late 1880s. Editor, Sandi Toksvig has selected from the detailed journal entries that 'Bully' made throughout her extraordinarily colourful trip to bring her, her peers and the Victorian age vividly to life. In addition, a selection of Jinks' original sketches have been carefully restored by illustrator, Sandy Nightingale. Of particular interest to historians are the episodes involving her initiation into the murky world of French opium dens, her entirely accidental (but triumphant) involvement in the running of the bulls in Pamplona, a curious sojourn at the Italian lakes where she spent a happy time mistaken for Queen Victoria and a rather tiresome week on a Greek shipping vessel where, it is believed, designs for her trademark double-gusset underpant first began to take shape...
