Abstract

The author, Isaac D'Israeli (1766 – 1848) was a British writer, scholar and man of letters. He is best known for his essays, his associations with other men of letters, and as the father of British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. Curiosities of Literature, his most popular work, was a collection of essays about historical persons and events, unusual books, and the habits of book-collectors. The book was very popular and sold widely in the 19th century, reaching its eleventh edition (the last to be revised by the author) in 1839.
