1860 The Miscellaneous Writings of Lord Macaulay. In two volumes
What Our Customers Say...
Featuring a portrait frontispiece. Complete in two volumes. Thomas Babington Macaulay, Baron Macaulay (1800–1859), was a historian, essayist, and poet. While ostensibly studying for the bar, he was living in Cambridge, debating regularly in the Cambridge Union, and writing his first articles for reviews. In June 1824 he began, with a few Cambridge contemporaries, writing for Knight's Quarterly Magazine, to his father's distress. In January 1825 he made his début in the Edinburgh Review with an article on West Indian slavery. The following August the Edinburgh published his ‘Milton’ essay, which made him famous. Macaulay has been criticized for using novels and plays as if their characters were based on real people. On the contrary, he thought he could write a history which was as accessible and readable as a novel, yet which told a story that was true, and would on that account, ‘supersede the last fashionable novel on the tables of young ladies'. DNB
In half calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally, very smart with some shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and very clean, with just the very odd spot. Slight off-setting to the title from the frontis, as expected. There are ink school stamps to the title pages.
