Product description

All the Time in the World proffers a miscellany of customs, traditions, and pleasures people have pursued throughout the ages. The book takes its cue from the medieval books of hours, which prescribed certain readings and contemplations for various parts of the day and year. Subjects covered include the daylong ceremony of laying a royal Elizabethan tablecloth, Nostradamus' belief in the aphrodisiac power of jam, the sensuous practice of sniffing incense in fifteenth century Japan, and more. Entertaining, unexpected, and charming, All the Time in the World digs up the forgotten treasures of the past and inspires a passion for good living in the present.
