     The author proposes for the educated reader or for the one who is only passionate for historical writing an incursion in the collective imaginary of “ the first Romanian modernity”,  through a language that mingles scientific rigor with fictional subtlety, offering an attractive lecture about the everyday life in yesterday’s world, representing diversely: food, social prestige and life, body hygiene and beauty, odors and parfums, parties and anguish or the allegorical trip to “burial ground”.
