1 Martineau, Harriet Illustrations of Political Economy (10 Volumes Only)
London Charles Fox 1832 First Edition Paperback Very Good No Jacket 
London: Charles Fox, 1832. Harriet Martineau (1802-1876) has been called "the first female sociologist." Her 1837 study, "Society in America," which contains a critique of the state of female education, is considered foundational. She was certainly a prominent Victorian public intellectual, friend to J.S. Mill, George Elliot, Carlyle, H.H. Millman, and Bulmer-Lytton. She wrote on history and travel, and translated Comte. She was an activist, and her support for abolition made her unpopular in America. An atheist and in poor health, she had a fascination with Mesmerism. Supposedly, she dated Erasmus Darwin. These booklets are her tutorial on the ideas of Malthus, Ricardo, and Bentham. Very Good copies generally, they are in the original binding, paper wraps secured with thread. The text blocks are excellent, very clear, but these are fragile productions, and some covers are detached. Quercus offers the following volumes. No. III, Brooke and Brooke Farm. A Tale (stated Third Edition), 1833. 140 pages, rear cover not present; No. IV, Demarara. A Tale, 1832. 143 pages, rear cover present but detached, front cover not present; No. X, Homes Abroad.
