Descripción

Two volumes complete - Volume One - 392pp and Volume Two - 498pp. Full calf, raised bands spines in six panels, (remnants of) leather title labels to second and third panels, central flower device to centre and volute corner pieces in gilt to remaining panels. Outer joints rubbed, split to foot of front outer joint of volume one which is quite weak, leather labels to spines effectively absent. Some light browning/foxing to portrait frontispieces and titles, front inner joint to volume one slightly cracked between pages 2 and 3, some light sporadic foxing to text, but generally fairly bright and clean. Engraved portrait frontispieces to each volume, with two further engraved portraits to text and five facsimiles of drawings by Charlotte Edgeworth to the rear of volume two. Richard Edgeworth, 1744-1817, was the father of the novelist Maria Edgeworth, "Edgeworth was a man of boundless energy, both physical and intellectual. In youth an accomplished dancer, at sixty he could still demonstrate his agility by jumping over a dining-room table. Too miscellaneously inventive to become a major figure in either science or manufacture, he was the co-author of an educational manual [Practical Education] which enjoyed an international reputation, especially in France, and in the British Isles still remained in use in the latter part of the nineteenth century" (Oxford DNB).
