1866 Self-Help; With Illustrations of Character, Conduct, and Perseverance
What Our Customers Say...
Leather Binding, Scarce
New edition. Scarce edition. A favourite of the mid-Victorian virtues, rather than relying on others, self-help became an expression of character. In this work, Smiles argues for the removal of major hindrances that prevent the full development of the individual, with an emphasis on the "active" role, stressing self-education. Written by Samuel Smiles, a British author and government reformer who promoted the idea that progress was attributed to new ideas and attitudes rather than new laws.
Bound in full calf. Externally, very smart with light rubbing to the extremities. Fading to the spine and the odd mark to the board. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright and clean with the odd handling mark.
