Why We Love This

The Rise and Fall of the British Nanny by Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy. London: Hodder Stoughton, 1972. Second printing. The classic study of the central place held in Britain by the fearsome and often indispensable nanny. Unsung heroine of much children's fiction, representing all that was best and worst in British life up to about the 1980s, this book identifies the curious rituals and respect that surrounded her role in upper class families. Marks to first end page from tape removal.
