Shapely Ankle Preferrd review ☆ 103 Francesca Beauman â 3 read & download read & download Shapely Ankle Preferrd What do women look for in a man And what do men look for in a woman And how and why has this changed over the centuriesEvery week thousands of people advertise for love either in newspapers magazines or online But if you think this is a modern phenomenon think again the ads have been running for over three hundred years In 1695 a popular London pamphlet published the brave plea of a young gentleman who 'would willingly Match himself to some Good Young Gentlewoman that has a Fortune of £3000 or thereabouts'This was just the beginning In the 1. This was a fascinating book It was not just a history of lonely hearts ads themselves but also a snapshot of social s at the time with regard to relationships sex marriage gender roles etcIt s a British history spanning the period from the first personal ad placed in 1695 to today And it s interesting to note that people have been getting catfished for hundreds of years There are plenty of amusing touching worrying and intriguing moments arising from the ads The context in which they occur is fleshed out well That said the 20th and 21st centuries are all suashed into a comparatively little section at the end If the author wasn t as interested in this period perhaps she could ve omitted it from this study Alternatively she could ve devoted time and research to it As it is it seems a bit strange feels a bit like the publisher insisted on it so sent her away to tack it on before publication The author strikes a nice balance between a popular read and a well researched history that is it s factually sound and presented in a sophisticated manner without being dry and academicAnd interesting social history with well selected uotes from primary sources woven into an easy narrative style
