Thomas Carlyle: A History of His Life in London (Vol. II) by James Froude

£10.99

Product description

In Volume 2 of his biography of famed philosopher, historian and essayist, Thomas Carlyle, Froude explores the 'London Period' by utilising Carlyle's own journal to discuss his development as a public figure and an individual . Although primarily a biography, Froude's 1902 work offers an insight into the reception of Carlyle's philosophies by a society bridging the flux between traditional religious doctrine and emerging scientific fascination.

The copy has a maroon cloth cover without a dust-jacket, and is intact with a few, small dust smudges due to age. There is gilt lettering on the spine itself, which is worn but relatively strong and structurally unbroken. There is slight bumping to the head and tail. The page blocks demonstrate some foxing and discolouration, but the interior pages of the book are all clean, bright and undamaged, with an attractive swan and ship print on the spine.

An interesting read: not only for those interested in Carlyle himself, but also the reception of late Victorian/Edwardian society towards his philosophies.
