About this Item

First Edition. Pages Unpaginated.12mo. One quarter calf and marbled boards and end papers. Red leather spine label with gilt titling. T.e.g. First Edition. Pearl 171. Gaines 89a, 89b (for American issues, 1830Ð3). Osborne. Bookplate of John Bolton.William Cobbett (1763Ð1835) was a politicaljournalist, ever polemical and controversial, both in England and America, where he traveled extensively at two periods. Many critics consider this his best writing. It was originally issed in fourteen monthly parts and in book edition in 1830 (here noted as 1829). A work with charm and warmth, it is an apotheosis of family life. In this presentation, Cobbett's prose lacks the rancor and criticism of his other writings, but is rather naive and unaffected with a learning-centered family life, an extension in the family of schooling, which, in its more formal institutions was so austere and grim in Cobbett's time. Cobbett commends his mode of life to others. Wear atedges of spine and boards. External cracks for 1" at head of spine. Wear at corners. Abrasion of boards. front hinge cracked with detachment of front end paper (present). Scattered mild foxing and browning. Else, Very Good.`. Bookseller Inventory # 9127
