Practical Education. Volume I
Special Collections LB1025 E69 1801
London: Printed for J. Johnson
The Anglo-Irish writer, Richard Lovell Edgeworth (1744-1817), and his daughter Maria (1768-1849) staunchly advocated for children’s literacy. Despite their sometimes disaffected relationship, the father and daughter collaborated on several educational and moralist projects. In his Memoirs (1820) Richard wrote, ‘[Maria] is my pupil, my literary partner, and my friend’. Richard influenced Maria’s novel writing. As a teenager, she recorded her father’s stories about an imagined Irish family, later reworking them into her novel Patronage (1814).
