Summary
COI synopsis: By an odd quirk of fate, a diary written in 1906 came to be published seventy years later. Entitled ‘The Diary of an Edwardian Lady’ it has featured in the British best seller lists ever since, as well as being translated into eleven languages. Vicki Luke looks at the merchandising of the Diary and its numerous spin-offs ranging from fine porcelain to record albums.
Researcher Comments
Includes an interview with Rowena Stott, Edith Holden’s great niece who inherited the diary. NB: Information drawn from the Australian version
