About this Item

First American edition, following the London first of 1861, and taken from the second (London, 1872), "revised and corrected, with considerable additions." NOT a modern reprint. Discussion includes, inter alia, "criminal states," "decline of art," "education," "colonies," "slavery," and "steam engines." And yes, female enfranchisement.

Ex?social club library: call number on endpaper, pressure-stamp on title-page, paper call number label on spine, no other markings. Bookseller Inventory # 27904
