Temple Smith London 1974. 8vo. hardcover. 329pp. index, b/w plates. Vedry good, front endpaper trimmed along front edge. / Good, chipped d/w. The British workhouse is the stuff of literature and legend. But what exactly was it? Surprisingly, no full-scale history of the workhouse has ever been written. Here, historian Norman Longmate tells the full story, from its beginnings in Elizabethan times until its demise in the 1940s, though mainly concentrating on the Victorian workhouse in the years of its tarnished glory
