Tom Brown's School Days [c. 1910s]

£14.99

Product description

A scarce edition, published by George Routledge & Sons, Ltd, undated but likely to be in the 1910s. Bound in red canvas with black lettering, with illustration and embellishment to the spine and front board.

Thomas Hughes' classic schoolboy novel follows the adventures of Tom Brown as he leaves his home in the Vale of the White Horse, Berkshire, and begins life at Rugby School in the 1830's. Tom's time at Rugby starts well, but he begins to find himself in many scrapes and difficulties with the school bully - Flashman, the masters, local landowners and the other pupils. He finally appears before the man Tom fears most, the headmaster Dr Arnold. Dr Arnold is faced with whether or not to expel Tom from the school, and if not how to stop Tom's downward spiral.

Thomas Hughes (1822-1896), was a student at Rugby School and wrote this classic work in the mid-1800's. Hughes later went on to write a sequel (Tom Brown at Oxford), and also became a Member of Parliament. Dr Thomas Arnold is the only person in the novel who is a true historical figure, the other characters, Hughes said later, were composites of boys whom he knew at school.

In Fair condition. The boards are marked and worn. The canvas on the spine is faded and worn, with the lettering and embellishment fading. The corners of the boards are bumped. The front end paper has an inscription written in pencil: "To Billy, with love from J. Miles. Xmas 1918". The pages are somewhat yellowed and have foxing. The binding is sound.
