Title: Memoirs of Richard Lovell Edgeworth, Begun by Himself and Concluded by
Description: 1820. EDGEWORTH, Maria. THE MEMOIRS OF RICHARD LOVELL EDGEWORTH, BEGUN BY HIMSELF AND CONCLUDED BY HIS DAUGHTER. London: R. Hunter/Baldwin Cradock & Joy, 1820. First edition. 2 vols. Rebound in later 3/4 brown leather by Riviere. A bit of foxing to preliminary pages, otherwise a lovely pleasing set. Edgeworth (1768-1849) was the eldest daughter of Richard Lovell Edgeworth (1744-1817), a wealthy Irish landlord. "He was an eccentric, radical and inventive man, deeply interested in the practical applications of science and in education. His influence on Maria was profound; he frequently 'edited' her work, managed her career, and imparted to her many of his own enthusiasms." (Oxford Companion to English Lit.). Ill.: FE.
