1898. Illustrated. With a Prefatory Memoir by Thomas Hughes. Charles Kingsley was an English clergyman and novelist. He was the founding member of the Christian Socialist movement and was known for his controversy with Cardinal Newman. He was a chaplain to Queen Victoria, a rector at Eversley, Hampshire and was sympathetic to the Chartists. With his novel Alton Locke, Kingsley attempted to expose the social injustice suffered by agricultural laborers and workers in the clothing trade. It also describes the Chartist campaign that he was involved with in the 1840s. Contents: A Poet's Childhood; The Tailor's Workroom; Sandy Mackaye; Tailors and Soldiers; The Sceptic's Mother; The Dulwich Gallery; First Love; Light in a Dark Place; Poetry and Poets; How Folks Turn Chartists; The Yard Where the Gentlemen Live; Cambridge; and The Lost Idol Found.
