George Eliot : a life by Rosemary Ashton( Book )
53 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There were other women writers in the nineteenth century, but Eliot alone left the family circle to follow her own devices at a time when unmarried women generally kept house for others. What is more, she moved in unconventional and Bohemian circles. Her long and loving relationship with the previously married G.H. Lewes scandalized even her closest friends. She was generally admired but shunned socially, except by the boldest radicals and feminists. Rosemary Ashton

Victorian Bloomsbury by Rosemary Ashton( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While Bloomsbury is now associated with Virginia Woolf and her early-twentieth-century circle of writers and artists, the neighborhood was originally the undisputed intellectual quarter of nineteenth-century London. Drawing on a wealth of untapped archival resources, the author brings to life the educational, medical, and social reformists who lived and worked in Victorian Bloomsbury and who led crusades for education, emancipation, and health for all. She explores the secular impetus behind these reforms and the humanitarian and egalitarian character of nineteenth-century Bloomsbury. Thackeray and Dickens jostle with less famous characters like Henry Brougham and Mary Ward. This history of nineteenth-century London embraces the high life of the squares, the nonconformity of churches, the parades of shops, schools, hospitals and poor homes alike

Thomas and Jane Carlyle : portrait of a marriage by Rosemary Ashton( Book )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1848 Thackeray told his mother, 'Tom Carlyle lives in perfect dignity' in a little house in Chelsea, 'with a snuffy scotch maid to open the door, and the best company in England ringing at it'. That small house at 5 Cheyne Row contained the most remarkable couple in London: the great sage Carlyle, with his vehement prophecies, and his witty, sardonic wife Jane, at once proud and frustrated 'in my character as Lion's wife'. It was a strong, close, mutually admiring yet often mutually antagonistic partnership, fascinating to all who observed it." "This joint biography describes their relationship with each other, from their first meeting in 1821 to Jane's death in 1866, and also their relationship with the world outside. Rosemary Ashton's blend of rigorous scholarship, warm sensitivity and lively wit makes this not only a portrait of a marriage but a picture of a whole age, elegant, erudite and entertaining."--BOOK JACKET
