About this Item

English Poor Laws Royal Commission on the Poor Laws and Relief of Distress. Memoranda by Individual Commissioners on Various Subjects. Presented to both houses of Parliament by Command of his Majesty. Appendix volume XII. London: His Majesty's Stationary Office, 1910. iv, 461 pp. Later cloth, lettering piece to spine. Light soiling, negligible shelfwear, outer margins of a few leaves repaired with tape, internally clean. $75. * Treatises composed by Commissioners of the Royal Commission on the Poor Laws and Relief of Distress (appointed 1905 to inquire into the effects of the poor laws upon the poverty-stricken inhabitants of England). Many are supported by maps, charts and statistics that address the history of poor law from as early as 1601, when the Poor Relief Act was enacted, which allowed parishes to oversee the poor in their areas. During the nineteenth century, many parishes gathered funds and administration into poor law unions, and in 1834 the new 'Poor Law' placed control of the poor and the relief funds into the hands of the Commissioners. A fascinating look at the relief system in England before national assistance programs replaced the laws. Walker, Oxford Companion to Law 968. Bookseller Inventory # 31730
