The Spirit of the Age Contemporary Portraits William Hazlitt Originally published in 1846, this American edition of William Hazlitt's early work is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It comprises a collection of portraits of the author's contemporaries, friends and people that he particularly admired. The collection includes poets, authors, politicians and journalists as well as preachers and philosophers. Hazlitt uses razor sharp wit to both celebrate and criticise the subjects of his portraits. This is an unusual book whose 273 pages contain a wealth of information, anecdote and cutting humour that is a fascinating read today. Contents: Jeremy Bentham, William Godwin, Mr. Coleridge, Rev. Mr. Irving, The late Mr. Horne Tooke, Sir Walter Scott, Lord Byron, Mr. Southey, Mr. Wordsworth, Sir James Macintosh, Mr. Malthus, Mr. Gifford, Mr. Jeffrey, Mr. Brougham-Sir F. Burdett, Lord Eldon-Mr. Wilberforce, Mr. Cobbett, Mr. Campbell-Mr. Crabbe, Mr. T. Moore-Mr. Leigh Hunt, Elia-Geoffrey Crayon. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.
