About this Item

2nd Edition ( published in same year as 1st Edition ) Illustrated with 24 tissue-guarded lithographs. 2 Volumes. 8vo. Bound in period 3/4 gilt-tooled calf and marbled boards. Elaborately gilt-tooled spine compartments with ornate border motifs and decorations. "When Fanny Trollope set sail for America in 1827, she took with her three of her children and a young French artist. She left behind her son Anthony, growing debts and a husband going slowly mad from mercury poisoning. But, her hopes of joining a utopian community of emancipated slaves were soon dashed, and she and her children were forced to live by their wits in Cincinnati, then a booming frontier town on the Ohio River. What followed was a tragicomedy of illness, scandal and failed business ventures that left them destitute. Nevertheless, on her return to England, Fanny turned her misfortunes into a remarkable book. The Domestic Manners was a sensation on both sides of the Atlantic; it rescued the family fortunes and launched a remarkable literary dynasty. But more than that, it is a masterpiece of 19th-century travel writing, a timeless satire on a society torn between high ideals and human frailties. The Domestic Manners is as perceptive and funny today as it was when it was first published.
