The Victorian era in both Europe and America saw mourning rituals elevated to an art form expressing not only grief, but also religious feeling, social obligation, and even mourning fashion. This concise, illustrated work explores how 19th-century Americans viewed death and dying as a result of the profound historical events of their time. Paperback; 56 pages.
