This set covers the expansion of suffrage to middle class and working class men, and their efforts to extend these reforms to women and the colonies. It traces the evolution of parliamentary reform from its beginnings with the Levellers of the seventeenth century, concentrating on the arguments for and against expansion of the franchise in the eighteenth century, and the debates which led to the First Reform Act of 1832 and the Second Reform Act of 1867, and culminating in a discussion of the failure of the women's suffrage in 1873. The set includes a historical introduction, and six volumes of reprints of original and often rare pamphlets from metropolitan and provincial sources, tracts, caricatures, parliamentary debates, and other material on suffrage. New editorial material includes a general introduction, volume introductions, headnotes, endnotes and a consolidated index. It will appeal to historians studying the history of suffrage and the labour movement throughout the long nineteenth century.
