Letters on Literature. Richardson - Lang (Leonora Blanche, Mrs. Andrew) - 1887. [1273147]
1887 - holograph manuscript in ink on feint ruled paper, written on rectos only, marked up in blue crayon by a printer, slightly soiled in places, pp. 19, 4to, unbound, a hole near the top left hand corner (for a Treasury tag), good. The vast bulk of the MS is in Mrs. Lang's hand, with a number of corrections and the concluding paragraph in Andrew Lang's hand - including the signature Leonora B. Lang. A withering critique of Sir Charles Grandison: 'it is worth wading through to understand the kind of literature which could flutter the dove-cots of the last century in a generation earlier than the one that was moved to tears by the wearisome drama of Hannah More.' Leonora Blanche collaborated with Andrew throughout, especially on the Fairy Books. Practically unacknowledged at the time, her reputation has revived recently. Published in Letters on Literature, 1892. (Plus VAT in the EU)
