What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Illustrated, Leather Binding

The second edition, published the same year as the first edition.

Bound in a wonderful half calf binding with marbled paper-covered boards.

Complete in two volumes.

This informative travel work surrounds the authors three-and-a-half-years spent living and travelling around America. Mrs. Trollope presents the principles, tastes and manners of ordinary Americans, looking at religion, the political system and many more aspects to show the running of day-to-day life.

Written by Mrs. Trollope, or Frances Milton Trollope, who lived and travelled in America, moving her family to live in a utopian community called the Nashoba Commune. After the commune failed, Trollope moved to Cincinnati, but returned to England three years later, having formed an altogether negative view of the country as a whole. 'Domestic Manners of the Americans' was Trollope's best known work, being both popular and controversial at the time of publishing due to the overall unfavourable depiction of the American character.

Illustrated with twenty-one lithographed plates and two frontispieces by Ducote after drawings by August Hervieu. Lacking one plate to Volume I.

Bound with half titles.

With one page of publisher's advertisements to the rear of Volume II.

Condition

Bound in half calf with marbled paper-covered boards. Externally, lovely. Endpapers have been renewed. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, with the odd spot, more prominent to the plates.
