Tolstoy in London, by Victor Lucas

Tolstoy in London
Victor Lucas

In 1601, Tolstoy arrived in London as part of a European tour to study education. He visited a number of schools, in particular St Marks’s Practising School in Chelsea where he asked the boys to write an essay about their daily lives – letters which Tolstoy took back to Russia. The author writes a detailed account of life and education in London in the 19th century and of Tolstoy’s understanding and delight in his relationships with children.

Hardback with dust jacket in good condition. A dozen or so pages have what looks like rust-coloured fingerprints on the bottom of the pages.
