Review: Movable Feasts: A Reconnaissance Of The Origins And Consequences Of Fluctuations In Meal Times, With Special Attention To The Introduction Of Luncheon And Afternoon Tea

User Review  - Cassandra - Goodreads

This was charming, and I enjoyed it, but I could not help thinking throughout how much easier (and more accurate) the book would have been if Palmer had had access to Google Books & ngrams. I am left wanting to read some recent scholarship on the same topics, to see how accurate he was. Read full review
