Epigraph
Dedication
For my mother, without whose existence, and my wife, without whose persistence, this book could never have been written.
First words
Just as Stephenson invented the steam engine and Arkwright the Spinning Jenny to keep pace with the demands of the Industrial Revolution, so Victoria invented the English Lady to supply a need created by the developing British Empire.
