These volumes, first published in 1877, contain Martineaus unusual autobiography. Written in three months in 1855 when Martineau believed herself to be dying of heart disease, the original two volumes remained unaltered despite her recovery. The third volume, covering the remainder of Martineaus life, was written by friend literary executor Maria Western Chapman, using her first-hand knowledge and access to Martineaus private papers. These volumes were the first substantial published account of Martineaus life and work, and remain a remarkable example of the genre for Martineaus vivd descriptions and candid, outspoken opinions of Victorian society.
