Sandford and Merton was enormously popular for a century and a half after its first publication. The novel is enlightenment for beginners, offering a course of education in class, race, and gender to its six-year-old protagonists: the robust farm-boy Harry Sandford and Tommy Merton, the spoilt boy from the big house. One of the first novels written about children, for children, the novel offers entertaining and practical lessons in manners, masculinity, and class politics.
This edition includes the original illustrations, along with contemporary reviews and other material on childhood by Thomas Day, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Mary Wollstonecraft, and others.
