Abstract

A scholarly edition of two works left in manuscript before Defoe's death. The Compleat English Gentleman sets out Defoe's view that anyone could become an English gentleman, regardless of birth. All that is needed is a good education, and sufficient wealth. Of Royal Education stresses the importance of education for the children of noble families.
