Biographical and Critical Essays. Reprinted from Reviews, with Additions and Corrections. In two volumes
London - Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, and Roberts, 1858. London - Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, and Roberts, 1858 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A smart first editionset of this collection of Hayward's essays. First Edition. Complete in two volumes. Abraham Hayward (November 22 1801 February 2 1884) was an English man of letters. After education at Blundell's School, Tiverton, he entered the Inner Temple in 1824, and was called to the bar in June 1832. He took part as a conservative in the discussions of the London Debating Society, where his opponents were J. A. Roebuck and John Stuart Mill. The editorship of the Law Magazine, or Quarterly Review of Jurisprudence, which he held from 1828 to 1844, brought him into connection with John Austin, G Cornewall Lewis, and such foreign jurists as Savigny, whose tractate on contemporary legislation and jurisprudence he rendered into English. In 1833 he travelled abroad, and on his return began contributing to the New Monthly, the Foreign Quarterly, the Quarterly Review and the Edinburgh Review. Political ladies first, and statesmen afterwards, came to recognise the advantage of obtaining Hayward's good opinion. The old reviewing hand became an acknowledged link between society, letters and politics. Collective editions of his articles appeared in volume form in 1858, 1873 and 1874, and Selected Essays in two volumes, 1878. Condition: In full calf bindings. Externally, excellent with just minor shelfwear only. Some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Spotting to the endpapers but otherwise bright and clean. Ink inscription to first blank of Volume I reading: 'W. J. S. Kevill Davies, from his affectionate friend Maurice Duff Gordon. On his leaving Eton, Xmas 1865'. Overall: NEAR FINE..
