About This Item

London: B. T. Batsford, 1964. A Very Good+ clean, tight and unmarked copy with dustjacket which is not price clipped. 21 illustrations. Shaftesbury's long career was largely devoted to relieving the condition of the destitute of Victorian England, yet just as his many other achievements have been overshadowed by his work on behalf of the poor and oppressed, so the complexity of his motives and personality has been hidden by the popular legend of a simple, genial, pious and soft-hearted philanthropist. Dr. Best shows the many achievements of Shaftesbury and is particularly succesful in revealing the true man. *** NOT EX LIB **** 204. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
