About the Author

Anthony Howe specialises in the history of nineteenth and early twentieth-century Britain. His books include Free Trade and Liberal England, 1846-1946 (Oxford, 1998) and, with Simon Morgan, he has edited Rethinking Nineteenth-Century Liberalism: Richard Cobden Bicentenary Essays (2006). Dr Morgan graduated with a PhD from the University of York in 2000. From 2002-2005 he was Research Officer at the Letters of Richard Cobden Project, and since 2007 he has been Senior Lecturer in Social and Cultural History at Leeds Metropolitan University. His publications include A Victorian Woman's Place: Public Culture in the Nineteenth Century (2007) and, with Anthony Howe, he has edited Rethinking Nineteenth Century Liberalism: Richard Cobden Bicentenary Essays (2006). He is currently studying the relationship between popular politics and a nascent culture of celebrity in the early nineteenth century.


Cobden the correspondent found himself in these years obliged to comment on a widely disparate series of agendas set by other people. This may explain why the editors' notes in this third volume are appreciably longer than before. No matter. These notes - extensive, scholarly, yet eminently readable - are a joy. * Boyd Hilton, English Historical Review *
