Today’s gift is a lovely book – Mrs Hurst Dancing and other scenes from Regency Life 1812-1823

This is an old book published in 1981 but it is beautiful with some stunning illustrations! There are seventy of them and they were painted by Diana Sperling between 1812 and 1823.

Di, as she was known in the family was born in 1791 and until she married lived with her parents, brothers and sister at Dynes Hall near Halstead in Essex.

 She loved to depict the daily events of the family – many are humorous and all are charming!
