The Life and Letters of Lord Macaulay [2 Volumes, 1961]

£29.99

Product description

Published by Oxford University Press in 1961. Two Volumes with dust jackets.

The Life and Letter of Lord Macaulay is a biography of Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay written by his nephew Sir George Otto Trevelyan. Lord Macaulay was a Whig politician in the mid 19th century. He served on the supreme council of India between 1834-1838. He was instrumental in the introduction of English as the medium of instruction for higher education in India, which led to this policy being known as Macaulayism.

Both volumes are in good condition. The dust jackets, which are not price-clipped, are a bit yellowed and both have tears at the top of the spine. The blue boards are in bright and clean condition and the bindings are tight. There are a few pencil underlings, primarily in the second volume.
