The Four Georges: The English Humorists

£9.99

Product description

The Four Georges: Thackeray's lectures on the Georgian reigns have usually been published in connection with other of his shorter works, and in consequence have often failed to receive the attention of the general reader. These pictures of English life in the eighteenth century are charming, piquant, and accurate - sketches of the manners, morals, court and town life during the reign of George I, George II, George III and George IV.

The English Humourists of the Eigteenth Century: The first of Tharckary's Lectures on the English Humorists was given at Willis's Rooms, London, on May 21 1851. It was atteneded by a large audience, which included most of his friends, among the number being Carlyle, Hallam. Kinglake, Macaulay and Milman. The last lecture was delivered on July 3. The whole series was an unqualified success. so that invitations for a repitition poured in from across the country.

Condition commensurate with age.
