Full Employment for Everyone - but nobody listened!

On May 20, 1854 the above advertisement appeared in the Bucks Herald newspaper, advertising a book "Pauperism Abated" by Thomas Tearle, and published by Ebenezer Charles Bird, and bookseller and printer of Tring, Hertfordshire.

Unfortunately what I am sure was the solution to the problem of poverty seems to have been ignored by the disbelieving world - as I can find no other adverts for this book, or references to it, or its author. It would seem that whatever Thomas Tearle had to say has been lost for ever. ... or has it?

Does anyone know where a copy might be obtained?

  1. Gerrard contacted me to say there is a copy in the Bodleian Library, at Oxford.
