About this book
Bloomsbury is now associated with Virginia Woolf and the early 20th century circle of writers and artists, but it was also the undisputed intellectual quarter of 19th century London, an area where great writers and social reformers resided. This major contribution to the history of 19th century London explores this varied community and those who lived there.
Drawing on a wealth of untapped archival resources, this book brings to life the educational, medical, and social reformists who lived and worked in Victorian Bloomsbury and who led crusades for education, emancipation, and health for all.
