Book Description Francis Boutle Publishers, London, 2011. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. John Passmore Edwards was born in Blackwater, Cornwall in 1823. He went on to make his fortune in publishing. He used his fortune to establish hospitals, convalescent homes, institutes, art galleries and museums, as well as libraries in London and Cornwall. Edwards was also involved in campaigns against slavery and was an opponent of the Boer war. He was also a supporter of the Chartist movement and an advocate for Parliamentary reform and also served briefly as an M.P. for Salisbury. Passmore Edwards believed that by 'funding the ladder' he would enable the poor to escape from poverty and his legacy is still to be seen in many of the Public buildings we see today. The book is a detailed look at his life and the buildings and institutes he founded with a review of how his legacy continues to the present day. Includes many colour photographs.
