Tagged: Author

(1821-1908) UK author of radical leanings – he was particularly active in the 1840s as a Chartist and as a writer who came close to espousing revolutionary actions – perhaps best known for his first volume of autobiography, Forty Years' Recollections, Literary and Political (1880). The North Pole, and Charlie Wilson's Adventures in Search of It (dated 1876 but 1875) as "By The Author of 'The Realm of the Ice King'" is a Fantastic Voyage tale whose young protagonist, maturing fast on board a whaler, travels into the deep north, somewhat ahead of history.
