What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Leather Binding, Prize Binding, Scarce
This work features the letter Samuel Smile sent home during his travels in Australia and America, alongside extracts from his personal travel log. Samuel Smiles was a Scottish author, and a government reformed. Born in 1812, Smiles believed that is was a person's attitude that could lead to progress rather than the implementation of new laws. His work 'Self-Help' championed this idea, promoting thrift, and criticising materialism. The book was a massive success and Smiles went on to write numerous self help books as well as biographical works. With illustrations throughout. In a handsome prize binding, with a prize bookplate to the front pastedown.
In a morocco binding. Externally, sound with some rubbing and minor marks to boards. Prize bookplate dated 1884 to front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright and clean.
