Very Good + No Jacket. From the inside cover: "First published in 1919, this classic account of seventeenthcentury women's working lives in Britain is now reissued with a new Introduction by Miranda Chaytor and Jane Lewis. Alice Clark brought to her subject a breadth of experience and sympathetic understanding of the position of women of all social classes which would be unusual today and was even more remarkable in her own time. The book describes the life and work of women from all socioeconomic groups in both town and country, and the detailed account it gives of what wives and widows actually did has remained unsurpassed. Using memoirs, letters and household account books, it documents the activities of gentry women who managed vast households and supervised the administration of family estates; it also draws on less accessible sources, such as quarter sessions' petitions, court leet records and church wardens' and workhouse accounts, to uncover the reality of poorer women's working lives. It reconstructs the conditions of sweated labour in the silver-spinning sheds and over-crowded tenements of the towns, the meagre wages of the proto industrial textile workers and the destitution of the labouring poor in the countryside. However oppressed, the women in Alice Clark's book are more than passive victims of the brutalised conditions in which they lived, for their endurance and resourcefulness clearly emerge from her account of their destitution."
