Unsure? Ask an Expert!

Thomas Day’s ‘History of Sandford and Merton’ was one of the best-selling and most popular children’s books from the late 18th-century. This work is a collection of short stories that loosely follow Tommy Merton and his growing up. While on the surface, it simply tells the story of a boy’s childhood, it is filled with philosophical ideas prominent in the Enlightenment.

 

From 1788 through the early 1790s, editions of ‘Sandford and Merton’ were published in various numbers of volumes. This example is of mixed editions. Still, a highly desirable work of 18th-century children’s literature.
