It is a vision of chaos and devilry as depicted in a variety of sources: the illuminated borders of medieval manuscripts, eighteenth-century prints of urban life, and even the illustrations of children's books. Barlow reveals the shifting meanings behind such images, as they were often symptomatic of larger cultural trend such as rapid industrialization and urbanization, an emerging class system, and the moral movements of the late nineteenth century.
