What Our Customers Say...
Leather Binding, Signed Binding
Reprint of 1883 First Edition. Essays of Elia is a collection of essays written by Charles Lamb; it was first published in book form in 1823, with a second volume, Last Essays of Elia, issued in 1833 by the publisher Edward Moxon. The essays in the collection first began appearing in The London Magazine in 1820 and continued to 1825. Lamb's essays were highly popular and were printed in many subsequent editions throughout the nineteenth century. The personal and conversational tone of the essays proved to be a big hit. Lamb himself is the Elia of the collection, and his sister Mary is 'Cousin Bridget'.
