About This Item

Ellis and Elvey, London, 1892. 1st edition. Hardcover. Very Good /No Jacket . Carlyle's own brightness now makes him shine as a fixed star in our literary firmament. His radiance may be obscured; quenched it cannot be. His faults and foibles are manifest...His prejudices are vexatious... Amid all [his] prejudices, amid all his denunciations of men and things to be condemned, we see him capable of hope; we feel he sympathises with his fellow creatures. Beneath a mask of ferocity love beams from his countenance." [Preface] Owner name. The book is in Very Good condition with slightly worn corners and top and bottom of spine. There is a smudge on the front cover. The accompanying picture of the book is inaccurate in showing the book with a blue instead of green binding. 1ST EDITION.
