Antique Georgian Book ~ (1826) ~ Political History

A handsome Georgian leather-bound book: The Constitution of England, by Jean-Louis de Lolme (the Swiss/English political theorist); published in London (1826). An historically important book, in which de Lolme advocates a constitutional form of government - with a balance between monarchy, aristocracy and democracy. He praises representative democracy, and urges an extension of suffrage; the work influenced many of the framers of the United States Constitution. An attractive antiquarian book, which will bring character and atmosphere to any home library. Half-calf binding, with marbled boards, gilt lettering/decoration to spine, and beautifully engraved frontispiece/title page. 188 years old.
