Description:

Nice leather bound set of Lytton's work with frontispieces!Edward George Earl Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton (May 25, 1803January 18, 1873) was an English novelist, playwright, and politician. ÂÂ He was one of the great novelists of his day, probably as famous as his friend and contemporary, Charles Dickens, and the range of his works give a fascinating insight into the Victorian world. Lord Lytton coined such phrases as The pen is mightier than the sword, the great unwashed and pursuit of the almighty dollar. Bulwer-Lyttons literary career began in 1820, with the publication of his first book of poems, and spanned much of the nineteenth century. He wrote in a variety of genres, including historical fiction, mystery, romance, the occult and science fiction. In 1828 he attracted general attention with Pelham, an intimate study of the dandyism of the age that kept gossips busy in identifying the characters with the leading men of the time. By 1833, he had reached the height of his popularity with Godolphin, followed by The Pilgrims of the Rhine (1834), The Last Days of Pompeii (1834), Rienzi (1835), and Harold: Last of the Saxon Kings (1848). The Last Days of Pompeii was inspired by the painting on the same subject by Russian painting Karl Briullov (Carlo Brullo) which Bulwer-Lytton saw in Milan. Pelham had been partly inspired by Benjamin Disraelis first novel Vivian Grey. Bulwer-Lytton was an admirer of Benjamins father Isaac DIsraeli, himself a noted literary figure, and had corresponded with him. Bulwer-Lytton and Disraeli began corresponding themselves in the late 1820s, and met for the first time in March of 1830, when Disraeli dined at Bulwer-Lyttons house. Also present that evening were Charles Pelham Villiers and Alexander Cockburn. Although young at the time, Villiers went on to an exceptionally long parliamentary career, while Cockburn became Lord Chief Justice of England in 1859. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are firmly attached. Â There is some wear to the extremities and the spine label on Zanoni is becoming loose. Â Internally the books are generally clean and bright apart from the some spotting in places particularly to the end papers and frontispieces. Â There is an ink signature on a front end paper in mostÂof theÂvolumes. Bookseller Inventory #
