This is an auction for THE VICTORIANS by A N Wilson.

"Victorian philosophers, scientists, economists, entrepreneurs, and politicians ushered in an era of rapid and unprecedented change. Twentieth and twenty-first century sensibilities were shaped and foreshadowed by a daring group of radical thinkers who belie the common notion that nineteenth-century Britons were, for the most part, staid and conservative thinkers and workers. Attempting to paint a "portrait of an age" that transformed the world and spawned an increasingly global point-of-view, Wilson provides a decade-by-decade overview of the Victorian era, animating those men and women whose actions and ideas helped define and characterize one of the most innovative and influential ages in history. Wilson's background as a biographer and a novelist enables him to vividly capture and communicate the texture and the flavor of Victorian Britain."
- Booklist (US) reviews:

"FIVE STARS!!! The full panoply of the Victorian Age is put on display in this essential book: royalty idiotic and benign, doubting divines, philosophers materialistic and otherwise, artists, authors, politicians and aristocrats, all supported by a working class (and farmers) who toiled and, surprisingly to followers of the sorry tale of revolutionary socialism on the continent, did not rise in revolt."
