Some light browning, rear page a little dusted. 33.5 x 21cm.Daniel Malthus, was born at Lincoln's Inn Fields in Middlesex in 1730. He inherited much wealth and property from his father Sydenham Malthus (died 1757) later residing at The Rookery near Dorking in Surrey for some years. He sold it in 1768, moving to Hadstock in Essex. His comfortable lifestyle enabled him to travel and pursue many interests including the theatre, the arts and sciences. He was a friend and executor of the will of the great philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau, and father of Thomas Robert Malthus, the famous economist. His sister Katherine, married George Eckersall in 1745 (this may be the same George Eckersall who in 1760 was (re-?)granted a lease of Sir Christopher Wren's House near Hampton Court). They had a son, John Eckersall, who in 1774 married his cousin Katherine Wathen, and their daughter, Harriet Eckersall, born in 1777, was to marry her cousin once removed, the Rev. Thomas Robert Malthus.
