"If I had served myself, with half the zeal that I have served the world, I should not now be thus forsaken!--I have sacrificed reputation, happiness--every thing, to the love of frolic--All frolic will soon be at an end with me--I am dying--and I shall die unlamented by any human being. --If I were to live my life over again, what a different life it should be!--What a different person I would be! --But it is all over now--I am dying."

Library Journal

In these two volumes published in 1801 and 1795, respectively, Edgeworth pokes fun at London upper crust. In addition to their humor, these volumes are noteworthy for their early feminist leanings. These Everyman editions include scholarly introductions, textual notes, and a chronology of the author's life. A big package for a small price.
