Gladstone, Politics and Religion From the dust-jacket: This unique collection of Gladstone Memorial Lectures indicates the continuing interest in the great Victorian statesman, William Ewart Gladstone, who was four times Prime Minister. They reveal the influence of the new material now accessible with the publication of The Gladstone Diaries and the vast collection of Gladstone manuscript material now deposited at St Deiniol's Residential Library, which is both Gladstone's own foundation and a national memorial to him. The lectures were all prepared and delivered during the period when the Diaries were being published, from 1968 to 1982, eight volumes so far, covering the period 1825-74. Together they provide some non-partisan twentieth-century reconsiderations of the statesman who dominated the nineteenth-century political scene and whose powerful influence and interest touched many other areas of life during that period. The ten lecturers and the editor include leading academics, politicians, churchmen and a librarian and they help us to understand Gladstone's relationship with politicians, churchmen and scholars, and also with his own family. They explain the importance of the Diaries for Gladstonian study, the influence of Dante, and what other books he read, his interest in librarianship, how he remained a friend of Manning in spite of their opposing views on church and state, his precarious relationship with Palmerston, and why he and Disraeli could never have been friends at all. His political life is examined in several lectures, and also the religious convictions which lay behind his politics. Gladstone's tremendous drive and extraordinary ability, combined with a versatility rare even in his day, make him a fascinating subject of the studies to which these lectures are a notable contribution. Please note: to avoid opening the book out, with the risk of damaging the spine, some of the pages were slightly raised on the inner edge when being scanned, which has resulted in some blurring to the text and a shadow on the inside edge of the final images. Colour reproduction is shown as accurately as possible but please be aware that some colours are difficult to scan and may result in a slight variation from the colour shown below to the actual colour. In line with eBay guidelines on picture sizes, some of the illustrations may be shown enlarged for greater detail and clarity.

(please note that the book shown is for illustrative purposes only and forms no part of this auction) Book dimensions are given in inches, to the nearest quarter-inch, in the format width x height. Please note that, to differentiate them from soft-covers and paperbacks, modern hardbacks are still invariably described as being ‘cloth’ when they are, in fact, predominantly bound in paper-covered boards pressed to resemble cloth. Fine Books for Fine Minds I value your custom (and my feedback rating) but I am also a bibliophile : I want books to arrive in the same condition in which they were dispatched. For this reason, all books are securely wrapped in tissue and a protective covering and are then posted in a cardboard container. If any book is significantly not as described, I will offer a full refund. Unless the size of the book precludes this, hardback books with a dust-jacket are usually provided with a clear film protective cover, while hardback books without a dust-jacket are usually provided with a rigid clear cover. The Royal Mail, in my experience, offers an excellent service, but things can occasionally go wrong. However, I believe it is my responsibility to guarantee delivery. If any book is lost or damaged in transit, I will offer a full refund. Thank you for looking.
