What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Leather Binding, Original Binding

Two volumes bound in half calf with cloth covered boards, with continuous pagination across both volumes.

The first edition of this extensive chronological history of Britain, detailing the constitutional, political, commercial, intellectual and social progress of the country from the first invasion by the Romans to the accession of Queen Victoria.

This is the work of John Wade, an industrious author, writer and journalist who at various periods contributed to periodicals and served as a writer for 'The Spectator'. This and other works from Wade were published by Effingham Wilson, a nineteenth century radical publisher and bookseller, and strong advocate for freedom of the press. Along with Wade's work, Wilson published material which other publishers found too politically dangerous, including works by Jeremy Bentham and William Godwin.
