empirical scholarship at its best... De Bellaigue succeeds in calling attention to correcting, extending, and refining modern understanding of nineteenth-century private education by, for, and about women on both sides of the Channel. * Gina Luria Walker, Journal of British Studies *
This ambitious comparative study of the education of middle-class English and French girls before the start of more active intervention by national governments later in the nineteenth century is an important addition to the existing historical literature. * Linda L. Clark, Paedegogica Historica *
Bellaigue's study fills an important gap in our understanding of the development of girls' education in the nineteenth century. Her book is clearly written, well-paced, and provided with useful tables and illustrations. Her comparative approach also proves a valuable way of capturing the essence of boarding-school education in the two countries. * Laurence Brockliss, English Historical Review *
