T. Fisher Unwin. Hardcover. London, 1905. 8vo, cloth with jacket, 295 + 312 pp. The first edition of Holyoake's memoirs in their scarce jackets. A fine set in very good minus examples of the dustjackets, which show some wear and closed tears to extremities. A somewhat uncommon collection of Holyoake's writings, published just before his death. "His writings are readable but unreliable, and he frequently overestimated his own importance. His reputation, overstated during his lifetime, thereafter suffered undeserved neglect. In the later twentieth century historians have rediscovered his importance in the making of Liberalism and a liberal society in Victorian Britain." - Oxford DNB . Fine. 1905. First Edition. (Inventory #: SET3005)
