About this Item: Caliban Books, Firle, Sussex, 1977. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First published by Richard Carlile's radical paper 'The Lion' in five weekly episodes in 1828, this is a new edition, first edition thus, first impression, published by Caliban in 1977. Some slight edge wear and a couple of short closed tears to top and bottom of jacket and spine, corners slightly rubbed, some overall time staining to largely white jacket, endpapers and flaps slightly foxed and damp cockled. Not price clipped (£6.00), no inscriptions, internally clean tight and square, overall a vg+ copy for its age. 104pp. From a parish workhouse to the heart of the industrial revolution, from debtors' jail to Cambridge University and a prestigious London church, Robert Blincoe's political, personal and turbulent story illuminates the Dickensian age like never before. In 1792 as revolution, riot and sedition spread across Europe, Robert Blincoe was born in the calm of rural St Pancras parish. At four he was abandoned to a workhouse, never to see his family again. At seven, he was sent 200 miles north to work in one of the cotton mills of the dawning industrial age. He suffered years of unrelenting abuse, a life dictated by the inhuman rhythm of machines. Like Dickens' most famous character Oliver Twist, Blincoe rebelled after years of servitude. He fought back against the mill owners, earning beatings but gaining self respect. He joined the campaign to protect children, gave evidence to a Royal Commission into factory conditions and worked with extraordinary tenacity to keep his own children from the factories. His life was immortalised in this most remarkable biography. Quite a scarce book. Seller Inventory # 004953
