I am in the last few days of finishing the book I’m calling (for want of a good title) Gaming Hell One, so I have little time to write a blog!
Here instead are some Gambling-related images:
This image is from 1792 by Thomas Rowlandson and depicts a gaming den and a hazard table. Hazard plays a big part in my book. A little early for the Regency but the idea is the same.
Here is an 1800 gambling image, featuring a woman gambling, which is in my book (but not the roulette table shown here)
For more detailed reading here are some posts from the files of Risky Regencies all about Regency Gambling.
