Charles Kingsley (1819-1875) was a broad church priest of the Church of England, a university professor, social reformer, historian, novelist and poet. He is particularly associated with Christian socialism, the working men's college, and forming labour cooperatives, which failed, but encouraged later working reforms.
Bound in half calf with cloth covered boards by The Hansard Publishing Company, with their small binder's sticker to the rear pastedown of each volume. Externally, very smart, with just some light shelf wear and a small amount of rubbing to the spines and extremities. Internally, both volumes are firmly bound. The odd spot to the pages, which are otherwise bright and clean.
Very Good Indeed
