Domestic Manners of the Americans (1832), Paperback / softback Book

Domestic Manners of the Americans (1832) Paperback / softback

Edited by Sara Danger


The writer Frances Trollope's Domestic Manners of the Americans, complemented by Auguste Hervieu's satiric illustrations, took the transatlantic world by storm in 1832.

An unusual combination of realism, visual satire, and novelistic detail, Domestic Manners recounts Trollope's two years as an Englishwoman living in America.

Trollope makes the civility of an entire nation the subject of her keen scrutiny, a strategy which would earn her ""more anger and applause than almost any writer of her day."" Auguste Hervieu's twenty-six original illustrations, placed and scaled as in the first edition, are included in this Broadview Edition, inviting readers to experience the original relationship of image and text.
