              Chimney sweeping is an ancient trade dating from the twelfth century. This social history, covering five centuries, draws on source material from original manuscripts and autobiographies by master sweeps. Reference is made to the origin, development, demise and subsequent reinsta...tement of the chimney, the sweeping of which became central to a controversy lasting one hundred years. The book deals with all aspects of the trade the lives sweeps led, the difficulties their apprentices encountered, the way they worked and the invention of sweeping 'machines'.

He lived with his wife in a big house called an Embassy. They had a privileged child who didn't go to school. Tutors came a...nd taught him how to be a gentleman. He paused.
