1 Cross, Maurice, editor. Contributing writers include Jeremy Benthem, M. V. Cousin, Ugo Foscolo, Thomas Macauley, John Stuart Mill, David Ricardo, John Russell, et. al. Selections from the Edinburgh Review, Comprising The Best Articles in That Journal, From Its Commencement to the Present Time. With A Preliminary Dissertation and Explanatory Notes. (6 volumes)
Paris Baurdry's European Library 1835 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good 
Book. 1835 to 1836, 6 volumes. The Edinburgh Review, begun in 1802 (and continuing until 1929), was a leading political and literary quarterly especially in its earlier decades, and a beacon of "liberalism" as the word was traditionally understood, and thus generally advocating laissez-faire policies, championing liberties, and supporting of free trade and less governmental tampering with the marketplace. Its stable of contributors is perhaps unrivaled among such publications, then or now, and indeed, it is virtually inconceivable that any one publication would draw upon so many thinkers whose ideas would have an indelible and lasting effect on society. As an anthology of the "best of" up until the publication date, the six volumes are organized around topics, with generally several pieces, some of them extended, on each of the covered larger themes. The first volume begins with a "Preliminary Dissertation on The Progress of Periodical Literature: and The History, Principles and Tendency of The Edinburgh Review", which is a summary of the review and what it stood for, as well as a synopsis of its highlights. Following comes the thematic sections. Starting with volume one, these are: Poetry and the Drama, Character of Distinguished Poets, Sketches of the Old English Dramatists, Character of Eminent Divines, Philosophers, Statesmen, Orators, Historians, Novelists and Critics; Miscellaneous Literature (German, Historical Writing, etc.); Metaphysics and Moral Science; Education; Political History; Foreign Politics; Miscellaneous Politics; Civil and Religious Liberty; Reform in Parliament, Church Reform, Liberty of the Press, West India Slavery; Political Economy -- Laws and Jurisprudence, Ireland. With all these broad categories, there are several, or even many, shorter pieces by different authors. There is scattered foxing, sometimes heavy. Most of the interior is clean, however. Modern green half calf over contemporary marbled boards. Some edge wear to the boards. Marbled endpapers. Overall a very good copy.
