Description:

Original blindstamped publisher's cloth, author and title in gilt on the spine, covers have minor wear; interior excellent. With the bookplate of Arnold Thackray on the paste-down and the signature of E.H. Hall on the endpaper. An attractive copy of this work, first published in London the prior year, and issued here as the second volume in the International Scientific Series of noteworthy science-related volumes in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Applying Darwinian ideas to human civilization and government, Bagehot examines the evolution of nation-making from our earliest days where military strength was key, up through "the age of discussion." According to a review written by Alfred Russel Wallace in Nature, Bagehot provides a "variety of topics connected with the progress of societies and nations, and the development of their distinctive peculiarities; and his book shows an abundance of ingenious and original thought." The book "is a very remarkable illustration of the dread of eagerness inspired by the doubts of a reflective mind. The eager nations, he held, had had their day. The time for deliberating, hesitating and slowly resolving nations, had arrived" (DNB, I, pp. 868-869).Bagehot (1826-1877) was a brilliant journalist and essayist who founded the National Review and later became editor of The Economist. He had a knack for witty criticisms and wrote extensively on politics and economics throughout his career. Bookseller Inventory # 14828
