        Education of the Children of Clothilde and Clovis - Alma-Tadema, 1861.

      EDUCATION OF THE CHILDREN OF CLOTHILDE AND CLOVISStaalgravure vervaardigd door J.H. Rennefeld naar het schilderij van Lourens Alma-Tadema (Opus XIV) uit 1861. Later met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 32,5 x 44 cm.De gravure behoort tot de vroegste los uitgegeven prenten naar werk van Alma-Tadema. De eigenaar van het schilderij was niemand minder dan de Belgische Koning Leopold. Met deze gravure kwam het ook binnen bereik van een groter publiek.Clovis was een koning uit de Frankische dynastie der Merovingers die 481-511 regeerde over Gallië. Hier zien we hoe Clovis? echtgenote, koningin Clothilde, toekijkt hoe haar kinderen onderricht krijgen in het bijlgooien. De koningin had met de lessen een bijzondere bedoeling: ten strijde trekken tegen Gondobald, koning der Bourgondiërs, de moordenaar van haar ouders.De architecturale aankleding is bijzonder rijk: de diagonale band van de decoratief betegelde vloer van de binnenplaats verbindt op ingenieuze wijze de voor? en achtergrond. De zuilen hebben Corintische kapitelen, overblijfsel uit de Gallo-Romaanse tijd. Education of the Children of Clovis is een van Alma-Tadema?s belangrijkste Merovingische voorstellingen en was van groot belang voor zijn vroege loopbaan. Op de tentoonstelling van 1861 kreeg het lovende kritieken. Toch had Alma-Tadema?s leermeester Henri Leys, in wiens atelier het schilderij werd vervaardigd, wel enige kritiek: ?Ah, het is beter dan ik dacht, maar het marmer lijkt wel op kaas.? Alma-Tadema heeft deze kanttekening ter harte genomen. Het weergeven van marmer zou uiteindelijk een van zijn specialiteiten worden, die hem de naam ?marbellous painter ?opleverde.Alma-Tadema is een van de eerste kunstenaars die het doen en laten van de oude Franken meermaals als thema gebruikte, vermoedelijk juist om de reden dat het zo weinig voorbeelden kende. Hij had een volstrekt eigen onderwerp gevonden waarmee hij zich kon onderscheiden. De Merovingische tijd was een periode in de Europese geschiedenis die als geheel eigenlijk afschrikwekkend en gruwelijk is, maar waarvan de details een rijk scala aan schilderachtige motieven bieden. Alma-Tadema verklaarde over de Merovingers dat het een ?miserabel volkje? was, ?maar pittoresk en interessant?.Prijs: ?1.250,- (incl. lijst).

Mark on lower edge. Spine gilt a little dull. A good copy of an important book. 22.5 x 14cm. Cordier 1225. This excellent book by an exceptional man is well described by Dr James Hayes in his paper 'Shanghai before the Treaty Port Era' (Journal of HK Branch RAS, Vol.48, 2008). "Dr William Lockhart of the London Missionary Society, 1811-1896, has provided a masterly and remarkable account, in a book published in 1861 but covering his many years of medical work among the inhabitants of Shanghai and the surrounding districts. Everything is at first hand, succinct and precise, wide-ranging but also in detail. It makes a most valuable contribution to the history of Shanghai with excellent material on its climate and health, in both town and country, taken from the annual reports of his Chinese Hospital, 1844-1858, and with good descriptions of the sanitary state of the city. In a further note, Dr James Hayes added the following, Described as 'the Nestor of medical missions to China' (D. MacGillivray, A Century of Protestant missions in China, 1807-1907 (Shanghai, American Presbyterian Mission Press, 1907) p.4. Dr Lockhart arrived in Canton in 1838 as China's second medical missionary [the American Dr. Peter Parker being the first]. He was also in Macau and Batavia, in Chusan under British occupation, and arrived in Shanghai on the day the port was opened. The American medical missionary doctor, Charles Taylor (p. 79) called him the 'very skillful, and amazingly energetic English surgeon and physician, Doctor William Lockhart, to whom I was indebted, during the whole of my residence in Shanghai, for many professional and friendly courtesies'. J.M. Tronson, a visiting British naval officer, described Lockhart as 'Talented in his profession, kind and courteous to his patients', and 'being perfectly conversant with the Chinese language and its various dialects, he has gained the esteem and respect of all creeds and classes'. Tronson, p. 203. .

        Autograph letter signed

      1861. First Edition . Signed. GRANT, Ulysses S. Autograph letter signed. Cairo, Illinois, December 20, 1861. WITH: Portrait. No place: Bureau of Engraving and Printing, No date. Single original ivory leaf (7-3/4 by 9-3/4 inches) in manuscript on recto, docketed on verso. Matted and framed with engraved portrait on ivory cardboard stock. Entire item measures 16-1/2 by 18-1/2 inches. $6500.December 20, 1861 Civil War autograph letter entirely penned and signed by Ulysses S. Grant soon after his promotion to brigadier general and his bold foray against Confederate forces at Belmont, this exceedingly scarce letter written to quartermaster Reuben Hatch amidst Grant’s investigation into Hatch’s conduct, ultimately leading his arrest, with Grant later said to believe “many of the stories about his drinking problems… were started by Reuben Hatch” in retaliation.Less than six months before the date of this letter, Grant was placed in command of the Union Army on the Mississippi. With ""the single gold star of a brigadier general on his shoulders… he understood almost at once that the key to winning the war was in the West, not in the East… From Cairo he could see how to win the war"" (Korda, 65). That November Grant led an attack on Confederate forces at Belmont. Ultimately both sides claimed victory, but Grant, who ""had been as green as his raw Illinois and Iowa volunteers…. braved the same dangers as his men and won his respect on the battlefield. Veterans at Belmont were henceforth 'Grant's men,' the core of what would soon become the Army of Tennessee"" (Smith, Grant, 131). In meeting the considerable challenges of his new command, Grant heard of a Chicago newspaper alleging quartermaster Reuben Hatch, the recipient of this letter, was using his ""position for personal gain… Grant ordered Capt. Hillyer, his aide-de-camp, to proceed to Chicago to investigate the allegations."" Hillyer subsequently reported to Grant that Hatch had intentionally hindered his inquiry. When the report was forwarded to General Meigs, quartermaster general, he ""ordered Grant to place Hatch under immediate arrest."" Grant, who informed Meig in early January that Hatch had been duly arrested, reportedly ""believed many of the stories about his drinking problems circulating at that time were started by Reuben Hatch,"" who later avoided court-martial only through the intervention of his brother, O.M. Hatch, Illinois secretary of state and a major supporter of Lincoln (Potter, Sultana Tragedy, 36). In confronting Hatch, Grant came to realize ""he would never fully leave his past behind. Any time he offended someone, that someone was sure to whisper that the general was a drunkard"" (Simpson, 108).Grant's letter to Captain Hatch, written at the height of the investigation, displays a brusque manner that seems to reflect Grant's barely veiled impatience with the captain. Grant's letter reads: ""Head Qrs. Dist S. E. Mo., Cairo, Dec. 20th 1861. Capt. R. B. Hatch, Dist. Capt. The bearer C.E. Atkinson complains of being detained here with nothing to do waiting for a settlement with your department if such is the case give him a settlement and let him go. U.S. Grant, Brig. Gen. Cm."" Docketed on the verso: ""Gen Grant Dec 20, [unclear word] to settle with E.C. Atkinson."" The letter is accompanied by a handsome engraved portrait of Grant (image 2-1/2 by2-1/2 inches) centered on an ivory display card. Portrait card (6 by 8 inches) with ""Bureau of Engraving and Printing"" printed at lower edge. Docketed on leaf verso in an unidentified hand. Two small pieces of tape to leaf verso.Grant's inked cursive clear and dark, light foldlines, faint marginal toning to near-fine letter; portrait fine.

        Herrick, Harrison B. Group of three daily diaries for 1861, 1863, 1865, and two others for 1866 and 1867. Together five diaries

      1861-1867, Various places 1861 - Group of three daily diaries for 1861, 1863, 1865, and two others for 1866 and 1867. Together five diaries. Various places: 1861-1867. Each 12mo morocco wallet style bindings, four black one red. Diaries for 1861 and 1863 in pencil, others combination of pencil and ink. All bindings are worn, 1863 is more so, and a couple have some tears along edges and hinges. The 1866 diary has more significant wear,m and some cracks along the edges. Group of 10 pages are loose in 1863. Condition of writing varies, but generally fairly legible. Overall the group is in very good condition.Herrick was from Syracuse, New York and served in Company D of the 110th Regiment of the New York Volunteers. However, information from the National Park Service archive suggest he served with the 12 Regiment out of New York. He appears to have served during the siege at Port Hudson, and did garrison duty at the infamous Union prison Fort Jefferson in Florida. The first diary covers his enlistment in April 1861 to the end of that year. The diary describes training and the trip to Washington, where the regiment was reviewed by President Lincoln. It appears that in July 1861 he was discharged for medical reasons, but for some reason he re-inlisted in August 1862. The diary for 1863 covers the entire year, and includes descriptions of the siege and assault on Port Hudson. Herrick seems to have been ill during this period and stayed in camp a lot.

        Fine early autograph letter as Prince of Wales, signed 'Albert Edward', (1841-1910, King of Great Britain)

      1861 - to 'My dear Keppel', his equerry Lt. Col. Henry Keppel, who was with him at the Curragh Camp, saying "I don't think that I answered your letter, enclosing Mansfield's, but I mislaid them . The photographs of myself arrived quite safely & are very well done, but the others of the Battalion have not yet arrived, & I trust that he will keep his promise & send by the end of the month - I wish you could remind all those who promised me their photographs in cartes de visite, that they have not yet kept their promise & that I hope they will do so; I think I sent you the list of those which I had not got - On Tuesday I am going over to Kimbolton [the Duke of Manchester's, in Huntingdonshire], & if the frost does not continue, shall hunt on Wednesday with Lord Fitzwilliam's hounds [at Milton Park, near Peterborough], and on Thursday with the Oakl[e]y [in Bedfordshire]. On Friday we had a very good day with the Cambridgeshire; we had a run of nearly two hours, some parts of which were very fast; Burnaby [Frederick Gustavus, 1842-1885, later commanded the Household Cavalry] was out and rode very well [altered from 'quickly']. Now I must conclude & remain Yours very sincerely", 3 sides 8vo black-edged, Madingley Hall, Cambridge, [Sunday] 24th November very small defect at bottom right corner and one small closed edge tear in engraving The Prince had been at Trinity College Cambridge, since the beginning of 1861, living a mile or two away at Madingley Hall. In August he joined the 2nd Battalion, The Grenadier Guards, stationed in Ireland and he was determined to get some army experience, so he attended manoeuvres in Ireland, during which an actress, Nellie Clifton, was hidden in his tent by his fellow officers. Prince Albert, though ill, was appalled and visited Edward at Cambridge to remonstrate with him on his style of living. Albert died two weeks after the visit, in December 1861. Queen Victoria blamed Edward for his father's death and regarded him with distaste as frivolous, indiscreet and irresponsible. She wrote to her daughter Vicky, "I never can, or shall, look at him without a shudder." In September he visited Germany, where he met Princess Alexandra for the first time. He returned to Cambridge in October. This letter was written the day before Prince Albert's fatal visit. With a fine contemporary engraved print of the Prince , full length, full face, in dress uniform including the Garter star (awarded 1858), plumed bicorne in his right hand, the edge of Windsor Castle in the background, margins trimmed, 9

        Long Autograph Letter Signed to Alexander MITCHELL (Sir Austen Henry, 1817-1894, Archaeologist, M.P. & Diplomat, Excavator of Nineveh)

      1861 - (of Stow, Midlothian, and Carolside, Berwickshire, Captain Grenadiers Guards, M.P. for Berwick-on-Tweed, 1865-1868), thanking him for writing instead of "enjoying the country and all the rest, I hope, you are getting", Layard's work has almost cut him off "from society. The price of office is not a small one" (as Under-Secretary to Russell at the Foreign Office), he hopes to get a holiday in the middle of September, and is thinking of North Italy, "but if I could manage to get to Scotland . I should require no workroom I promise, but devote myself to play" at Carolside, however "I like to get clear out of Great Britain, so as to have no temptation to return to London before my time. If I am within reach I always feel anxious . & fancy I ought to be at headquarters", he is grieved to find "poor Sir John Harding," (the Queen's Advocate), "so ill. I much fear that he will never be able to attend to business of any kind again . In the United States the Confederates seem now to be gaining ground, and the summer months work in their favor. Unfortunately I see no prospect of an end to this terrible war", he points Mitchell to the 'Daily News' of the 28th for "a most interesting account of the last moments of Cavour" (who had seen Vittorio Emanuele II proclaimed King of Italy but whose health had given way), "furnished by his niece who was with him . Friday is the Ministerial Irish Dinner - the harbinger of the end of the season. I shall be truly glad when I am released from Derby Griffith and Col. Sykes", and asks to be remembered to Mrs Mitchell (Fanny Georgiana Jane, née Hasler, afterwards wife, 1877, of the 11th Lord Reay), 7 sides 8vo., House of Commons, 30th July In the 1840s Layard, supported by the British ambassador at Constantinople, made astonishing discoveries in ancient Assyria. Later, as M.P., he visited the Crimea and was an outspoken critic of the conduct of the war. Between 1857 and 1860 he was out of the Commons and devoted his energies to causes dear to his heart, the Risorgimento in Italy and the art of the unsophisticated early Renaissance, visiting Italy and buying pictures for himself and the National Gallery. Sir John Harding, (1809-1868), was Queen's Advocate, 1852-1862, then the senior Law Officer of the Crown. His continuing illness from overwork was a critical factor in the 'Alabama' incident a year later. The American minister, Mr Charles F. Adams, had complained that the vessel being built on the Clyde was clearly intended as a man-of-war to support the South. The papers remained on Sir John's desk till the 29th July 1862 - it seems they may have given him a stroke - but the 'Alabama' had slipped away on the 28th.

        The Woman In White.

      London: Sampson Low, 1861. First Single Volume edition, first Illustrated Edition, with a new preface by the author. Octavo, pp.viii; 494; [1], advertisement; [1]. With photogravure frontispiece of Collins plus engraved title-page. Bound in original blind-stamped purple cloth with gilt title panel to spine, coated yellow endpapers. With a publisher's prospectus for '12 Great Battles of England' tipped to flyleaf. Internally clean, faint name to second blank, bookseller blind-stamp and ticket to endpapers, contents shaken within case, cloth faded to brown at spine and extremities, gilt dulled to back-strip, moderate wear to same with spine-tips frayed. A very good copy. Collins's epistolary novel is considered to be amongst the earliest pieces of mystery fiction, and is certainly a fine piece of 'shocker' writing. You can't go wrong with a sinister warning from a seemingly mad woman encountered in Hampstead (a daily event these days), a bit of a mismatched love story and a shady character who goes by the truly fantastic name of Sir Percival Glyde. Admittedly in later years it has been overshadowed by the horrific spectre that is Andrew Lloyd Webber, but despite such attacks the original tale holds up remarkably well.

        Civil War "Across the Lines" private express mail envelope with special instructional label

      Richmond, Virginia 1861 - This 5.5" x 3.25" envelope has two Richmond, Virginia postal markings: a circular city postmark dated "Jul 26 1861" and a circular "Paid 10" handstamp indicating Confederate postage was paid at the time of mailing. There is also a bold strike of circular datestamp that reads, "Adams Ex. Co. * Louiville, Ky. * Jul 31 1861". The envelope additionally has 3 cent Dull Red, Type II (Scott #26) postage stamp tied with a blue grid cancel and matching blue double-circle blue postmark that reads Louisville KY. Aug 1 1861. A light blue label headed "The Adams Express Company, S. A. Jones, Agent. Louisville, Ky." that provides instructions to northern recipients for sending letters to the South. The stamp, postal markings and labels are in nice shape. The envelope has been split at the sides and bottom to facilitate display of the blue label. The lower third of the envelope front containing most of the address has been removed. The reverse of the flap fold has old tissue or archival reinforcement. In June of 1861, federal north-south mail routes were suspended, creating opportunities for private express companies to carry letters for higher fees (usually 15¢ -25¢ per letter) than formally charged by the post office. Adams Express Company had been the primary express service throughout the South and Middle Atlantic states before the war, and captured almost 80% of the relatively small "across the lines" mail service after the post office abandoned its north-south routes. Northbound letters, like this one from Richmond, needed to be enclosed in a plain unstamped envelope and addressed to the Northern recipient. They were then delivered by hand to an express office in Nashville, Tennessee. Confederate postal fees were paid at the express office or enclosed in the outside envelope. From Nashville, express couriers carried the mail across the lines to an express office in Kentucky, in this case the Adams Express Company office in Louisville where U.S. postage was applied and letters were dispatched through the postal service to their destination. Express companies only provided this service for less than three months for on 26 August, the Louisville Daily Journal reported President Lincoln directed that "Officers and agents of the Post Office Department will . . . lose no time in putting an end to the written intercourse with [the Southern states] by causing the arrest of any express agent or other person who shall after this order, receive letters for transmission to or from said states. . . ." (See the Spiegel catalog of 27 May 2010.) This is an important documentation of written communication between northern and southern civilians during the Civil War. All "across the lines" express mail is exceptionally scarce, and mail with the blue instructional label is truly rare as only four known examples have survived. (See Knowles at the Frajola website, 2017.) The last envelope with a blue instructional label (albeit in better condition than this one and with an equally rare provisional postmark) sold for $16,000 at Spiegel's auction of the Stephen C. Walske Collection in 2010.

        A Pilgrimage to My Motherland. An Account of a Journey among the Egbas and Yorubas of Central Africa in 1859-60

      London: W.J. Johnson. (1861). First. First English edition, the first with this introduction, and the first with Campbell's note to his Preface with additional biographical information, neither of which appeared in the American edition. Introduction by Sir Culling E. Eardley, Bart. Octavo. 145pp. Frontispiece portrait, tipped-in map. Publisher's brown cloth stamped in blind, titled in gilt. Gilt a bit faded, modest loss of cloth at the spine ends and a small split at the front joint, else very good or better. Inscribed by the author: "Rev. J. S. Martin, with the best respects of the Author. Sept. 20th, 1861." The very important account of Campbell's expedition with Martin R. Delaney to Africa exploring the possible return of African-Americans to the African continent. Indeed Campbell, a Jamaican of mixed race, moved to Africa after the expedition. The English edition is much less common than the American. OCLC records are confusing, but they appear to locate about a half dozen copies, only a single copy in the U.S. at Harvard. Inscribed copies are rare. .

        Lettera autografa firmata a ''Caro Enrico'' (probabilmente Mayer) (Londra), 26 aprile (s.d. ma 1861-1872), 18 Fulham Road

      1861. Biglietto (mm 110x90) scritto in minuta grafia firmato amichevolmente ''Gius.'' in cui prega probabilmente Enrico Mayer (pedagogista e scrittore italiano, di origine franco-tedesca) di voler anticipare 400 fr. A Pellegrino Rosselli: ''..dirò a Giannetta che cosa devono farne. E a voi li darò mercoledì o prima se prima vi vedo'' . Janet Nathan Rosselli (1842-1911).è ricordata come la "gentile infermiera" di Giuseppe Mazzini che lo accolse malato, sotto il falso nome di John Brown, nella sua casa livornese e dove il celebre pensatore italiano morì nel 1872. Janet si fece interprete con il marito Pellegrino Rosselli degli ideali mazziniani del Risorgimento italiano. La lettera è quindi probabilmente da datare agli ultimi anni di vita di Mazzini: il matrimonio di Giannetta risale al 1861 e l'ultima visita di Mazzini a Londra è del febbraio del 1871, dunque la missiva è collocabile in questo arco cronologico. Perfetto esemplare.

Grazie delle nuove dei bagni quando ne parlo mi vengono le lacrime pensando chi sa quando li rivedrò.. tutti qui lo salutano, il Granduca Ferdinando doveva venire qui a passare questi giorni con noi, ma la rosolia del Re di Sassonia lo ha trattenuto a Dresda.. la bambina è con la Regina stà bene e mi dicono tanto carina, io è dia dal 28 luglio '59 che non l'ho veduta; come la troverò cresciuta la prima volta che la vedrò..''.

        A pilgrimage to my motherland. An account of a journey among the Egbas and Yorubas of Central Africa. In 1859-60.

      8vo (18 x 12 cm), pp. 145, with a small double-page map mounted on the reverse of the front free endpaper, with a lithograph frontispiece of the author; recent half calf, marbled boards, gilt-lettered maroon leather labels.£2000 First edition (a London edition also appeared in the same year). Robert Campbell [1829-84] was a Jamaican-born printer, journalist and teacher who, along with Martin Robison Delany [1812-85], made up the Niger Valley Exploring Party of 1859-60, an expedition organized by free African Americans to explore the possibility of colonizing parts of West Africa with black immigrants from North America. Campbell initially travelled to England in early 1859. He then sailed from Liverpool to Lagos and then travelled northwest to Abeokuta, where he met up with Delany, a journalist, political activist and graduate of Harvard Medical School. Acting in their capacity as commissioners of the Niger Valley Exploring Party, the pair concluded a treaty with the king and chiefs of the Egba, giving them the right to establish settlements within Egba territory. A Pilgrimage to my Motherland is Campbell's account of the expedition, and includes descriptions of Abeokuta, ethnographic material, and the text of the treaty he and Delany negotiated.The treaty ran into political resistance among the Egba and was never implemented, but Campbell himself did settle in Africa. With his wife and four children, he settled in Lagos in 1862, where he founded and published a newspaper, The Anglo-African, and was involved in numerous commercial, civic, and scientific ventures that contributed to the early development of Lagos.

        Report Upon the Colorado River of the West, Explored in 1857 and 1858 by Lieutenant Joseph C. Ives.

      Washington, D.C. Government Printing Office. 1861. Senate Edition. Cloth bound volume, 11.25 x 9 inches, in five parts: General Report (131 pp); Hydrographic Report (14 pp); Geological Report (154 pp.); Botany (30 pp); Zoology (6 pp); Appendices. Triangular water stain on plates running from the free edge to page bottom; 5.5 inches along the diagonal. Cover and first two dozen pages detached, as are the two maps and the plate entitled Profile of Route. Discoloration and tears to several of these pages; one very short tear to each map. Front cover and spine badly abraded. A pair of tinted geological maps called for not present in Part III. The damp stain to the plates is a conundrum, as the text pages adjacent appear virtually undamaged. It is almost as if the plates were damaged prior to binding--admittedly an unlikely scenario. Equally strange, the eight scenic panoramas and the frontispiece maps, the work of F. W. v. Egloffstein, are likewise undamaged. (Additional artwork by Heinrich Möllhausen.) There are seven color lithographic plates of indigenous Native Americans: the Cocopa, Yuma, Moqui, Navajo, etc. The volume is in poor condition, given the problems cited above. However, once past the first two dozen pages, the single remaining fault is the water stain that appears on plates throughout the volume.

        Golden Treasury, The

      Cambridge: Macmillan and Co., 1861. "Not Just a Book - But a Monument" Beautifully Bound by W. Root & Son [ROOT & SON, binders]. PALGRAVE, Francis Turner. The Golden Treasury of the best songs and lyrical poems in the English language. Selected and arranged with notes by Francis Turner Palgrave. Cambridge: Macmillan and Co., 1861. First edition. Small octavo (6 1/8 x 4 1/8 inches; 151 x 105 mm.). [xii], 332 pp. Bound ca. 1900 by W. Root & Son (stamp signed in gilt on rear turn-in). Full dark blue morocco, each cover decoratively bordered with a double gilt frame enclosing long lines of pointille work and sixteen inlaid small red morocco dots. Front cover with an elaborate design, within the double gilt border of ornate flowers and stems with fine gilt pointille work. twelve of the flowers have an inlaid red morocco center. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, six of the flowers having a total of another twenty circular red morocco inlays. Gilt ruled board edges and multi gilt ruled turn-ins. Blue silk liners and end-leaves, top edge gilt. Original cloth covers bound in at end. With the the circular leather bookplate of Robert Ludlow Fowler (noted landscape artist and architect) and the armorial bookplate of Bronson Winthrop on front liner. A very attractive and fine binding on the scarce first edition of Palgrave's famed "Golden Treasury". This is "not just a book but a monument. The Golden Treasury of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems in the English Language, edited by Francis Turner Palgrave, first appeared in 1861, and it quickly came to define Victorian taste in poetry. Palgrave sifted 300 years of English verse, from the Elizabethans to the Romantics, for poems that embodied his timeless ideal of lyric poetry: 'neither modern nor ancient, but true in all ages, and like the works of Creation, perfect as on the first day.' "Palgrave's Golden Treasury, as it came to be known, was as influential as any anthology ever published. It not only decided which poems the literate Briton should know; it embodied a whole conception of poetry that is still a large part of what we mean by 'poetic.' Palgrave poetry is sincere, direct, and beautiful; it approximates song rather than speech; it deals with the most sweeping subjects-in particular, love, death, and nature-rather than the merely personal and local. Palgrave poetry is almost never urban, ironic, obscure, or verbally ambiguous" (Adam Kirsh, Palgrave's Revenge. Slate, Nov. 2, 2002). The London bindery of W. Root & Son consistently turned-out excellent work, both on fine bindings as here, and on trade bindings and sets. Packer lists the firm in business in Red Lion Square in 1899-1901, and the December 1942 issue of The Rotarian notes with regret that W. Root had been bombed out (uprooted?) of their premises on Paternaster Row during the 1941 Blitz.

        The Spectator

      New York: D. Appleton and Company,, 1861. A new edition, carefully revised in six volumes; with prefaces historical and biographical by Alexander Chalmers, A. M. 6 volumes, octavo (225 x 140 mm). Contemporary dark brown calf, burgundy and black morocco labels, elaborate tooling to spines in compartments separated by flat bands, single rule to boards, marbled endpapers and edges. Pages nice and clean, boards slightly marked, an excellent set. The Spectator was one of the first British periodicals, originally published daily in 1711 and 1712. Appealing to the growing numbers of middle class traders and shop keepers in London, Addison estimated it to have been read by a tenth of the city's population, primarily in coffee shops. The content was innovative and made the gentlemanly culture of letters accessible to a wide audience for the first time. The Spectator was reprinted in book form many times and remained popular through the 19th century.
