A Treatise of the Laws for the Relief and Settlement of the Poor : Volume I Hardback
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: The History of Social Welfare series
First published in 1805, this work summarises the vast array of laws at the time on the relief of the poor in Great Britain.
Split across two volumes, it not only condenses the laws themselves but also disentangles the theory and doctrine of each law and explains how the theory should have been applied in practice.
This work will be a valuable primary source for those studying 19th poor relief and welfare.
