Abundance by Sena Jeter Naslund: Naslund traces the life of Marie Antoinette from her "birth as a citizen of France" at age 14 to her execution, told from her own point of view. The novel provides a wealth of detail as Toinette savors life at Versailles, indulges in hair and clothing rituals, gets acquainted with the French court, and experiences motherhood and loss. The outcome is known, but the account is riveting.

She appear to be wearing stays of some sort but there are also stays the dog is inspecting? Purple shoes with pointed over top of foot. His coat has no cuffs just side buttons.
'A morning frolic, or, The transmutation of sexes', 1780, hand-coloured mezzotint after John Collet. The woman's stays lie on a chair to the right; an copy of Ovid's 'Metamorphoses' lies open on the floor. The print is thematically and compositionally related to Collet's 'An actress at her toilet, or, Miss Brazen just breech'd' of the same year.

In Restoration England, it was believed that if the cervix was ‘too often and unreasonably opened by too frequent coition, or in over moist bodies, or by the whites, it makes women barren". Therefore, prostitutes were not believed to be at high risk for pregnancy. This meant that the more customers a prostitute had, the less likely it would be that she would become pregnant.

Lydia and Wickham eloping. 'I am going to Gretna Green, and if you cannot guess with who, I shall think you a simpleton, for there is but one man in the world I love, and he is an angel. I should never be happy without him, so think it no harm to be off. You need not send them word at Longbourn of my going, if you do not like it, for it will make the surprise the greater, when I write to them, and sign my name "Lydia Wickham." ' (P+P, ch47)
