What's the best book on life in England during the 18th century? I would like to read musings on the empire, observations about society and generally the daily life of men. It would be nice if it was written by someone who is philosophical and highly literate.

Thank you.

Spectator, Rambler and Idler essays are exactly what you are looking for.
You can get a collection of Johnson's essays easily, might have to do a bit of hunting to get Addison and Steele

Which one out of those is most essential?
