Works of Henry, Lord Brougham by Henry Brougham
Book DescriptionHenry Brougham, lawyer, politician and Lord Chancellor of England (1830-34), was also a famous writer on many topics. Brougham lived at the heart of intellectual life in Victorian Britain, counting Hazlitt, Leigh Hunt, Byron and Lamb among his friends. In 1802 he co-founded "The Edinburgh Review" and went on to write more than eighty articles for it. In the 1820s he helped to create the University of London, and to provide libraries for working men. In his public life Brougham supported the abolition of slavery, and brought about radical reform of the legal system. On his retirement from high office, Brougham went to live in France and devoted himself to writing. The horse-drawn "brougham" carriage is named after him. "Works of Henry, Lord Brougham" was first published between 1855 and 1861 in eleven volumes, and contains his many historical and critical works, as well as his writings on social policies and their application. This reprinting gives libraries a chance to acquire a very rare and significant source for many kinds of 19th-century specialist.
