Product description
The Lost Lives of the Quaker Eddisons 1805 - 1867. A chance discovery of a trunk of documents by the author opened up a window onto the rapidly expanding cities of Leeds and London in the nineteenth century. Cholera epidemics, Luddite disruptions, hopeless medical interventions, the birth of the railways, a discovery of a murder, the discovery of an ancestor belived to be unknown great-great grandfather of the renowned inventor Thomas Alva Edison, a great Quaker bank crash and travel in America newly recovering from the Civil War, all were intertwined with the story of the painful life of a Leed's lawyer, Edwin Eddison.
