About This Item

NEW YORK: HARPER & BROTHERS, 1898 DARK BLUE-GREEN COVER WITH DESIGN FRONT AND GOLD PRINT SPINE. SLIGHT WEAR AROUND EDGES. 80 SECTIONS, 30 ILLUSTRATIONS. VERY INTERESTING DETAILED BOOK. TIGHT AND CLEAN INSIDE. The Newcomes: Memoirs of a Most Respectable Family is a novel by William Makepeace Thackeray, first published in 1854 and 1855. Perhaps one of the novel's greatest strengths is that it contains hundreds of references to the popular and educated culture of the time and thus gives a better idea than most contemporary novels of what it was like to live in England then — almost a miniature education in the Victorian era. Thackeray mentions poets, painters, novelists (some of the characters are reading Oliver Twist), politics, and other people, events and things both familiar and obscure to the 21st-century reader — and does so in a natural way that enhances the story. There are also plenty of Latin, French language, and even Italian language and ancient-Greek phrases — all untranslated. Colonel Newcome came to be an emblem of virtue for a period, often referred to at the turn of the 20th century. William Makepeace Thackeray ( 18 July 1811 – 24 December 1863) was an English novelist, author and illustrator, who was born in India. He is known for his satirical works, particularly his 1848 novel Vanity Fair, a panoramic portrait of British society, and the 1844 novel The Luck of Barry Lyndon, which was adapted for a 1975 film by Stanley Kubrick.
