No, he wasn't period.  I was just being silly, because the title is similar to the one you wanted
a review of.  This book is interesting, the title is hysterically funny, but will not give you
period information at all.

Here is a decent summary of Mr. Crapper:


After thinking about it, I can recommend this book:

Wright, Lawrence, 1906-  
Clean and decent : the history of the bath and loo and of sundry habits, fashions & accessories of
the toilet, principally in Great Britain, France & America / by Lawrence Wright. 
Rev. ed. / with additional material by Dave Larder. 
London ; Boston : Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1980. 
x, 211 p. : ill. ; 22 cm. 
ISBN: 0710006470 (pbk.) 

I have read this, but it was 20 years ago.  Lawrency Wright also wrote a book called "Warm and
Snug : the History of the Bed."
