"Whether you wish to model a flower in wax; to study the rules of etiquette; to cure a headache; to make a will; I hope you will not fail to 'Enquire Within'."
First published in 1956, Enquire Within Upon Everything was created as the ultimate household reference guide and remains a real gem of cultural history. Including thousands of fascinating entries, such as how to dance the polka, bake partridge pudding or even declare bankruptcy, this book provides rich insight into the day-to-day life of people living in Victorian Britain.
This encyclopaedic guide inspired Tim Burners Lee to invent the internet, influenced by the book's huge array of knowledge contained in one place. It also records some games and customs that would have otherwise been lost to history, such as the English version of trucco, a croquet-like lawn game.
