Best known for his beloved children’s classic ‘Tom Brown’s School Days’, Thomas Hughes was a British jurist, reformer and novelist. He attended Rugby School in the 1830’s and his admiration of the headmaster Thomas Arnold and for games and boyish antics are admirably captured in his famous novel. It enjoyed a phenomenal success, running into nearly 50 editions by 1890. ‘Tom Brown’s School Days’ was responsible for bringing the school story genre to much wider attention, inspiring the fictional schools of Billy Bunter’s Greyfriars, Mr Chips’ Brookfield, the girls boarding school of St. Trinian’s and J. K. Rowling’s Hogwarts. This comprehensive eBook presents Hughes’ complete fictional works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
