The Crabtree Orations 1995-2003

£14.99

Product description

Purple cloth cover with gilt titles on the spine, in very good condition. Internally the book is clean, bright and tightly bound. The Crabtree Foundation was set up in honour of Joseph Crabtree, an 18th-19th century polymath, spy and poet. An extraordinary curriculum vitae is printed at the back of the book which makes astonishing reading. Joseph Crabtree was born on 14 February 1754 and died exactly 100 years later on 14 February 1854 whilst visiting Charlotte Bronte in Haworth and is buried at Haworth Church. In the CV it states that he met and influenced or aggravated many of the leading figures of the day in both America and Europe. He was an inventor, a poet, a scholar, a scientist and a spy. The Crabtree Orations are held each year at University College London as near as possible to his birthday and in each a member of the Foundation speaks about one aspect of this man's life. This is the second volume of such orations, the first was published in 1997 and covers the period of 1954-1994.
