1899-1903 Hypatia Yeast Hereward the Wake
What Our Customers Say...
A nice set of three popular novels by Charles Kingsley.
'Hypatia', published in 1899. An interesting fictionalised account of the life of the philosopher, a touching Christian apologia that shows the Victorian religious sentiments.
'Yeast', published in 1902. Kingsley's first novel, a fraught attack on Roman Catholicism and the Oxford Movement, as well as an attack on celibacy, the social system, bad landlords, and more.
'Hereward the Wake', published in 1902. A popular historical novel, an adventurous tale which follows the Anglo-saxon figure Hereward, as he is leading the resistance against the Normans.
Kingsley was a priest for the Church of England, and was a friend and correspondent of Charles Darwin.
In a half calf binding with cloth to the boards. Externally, smart. A few light marks, and a little rubbing to the boards and spines. Minor bumping to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean.
