        19 Volumes of Sainte-Beuve's works

      Paris - Garnier Freres, 1890 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Nineteen leatherbound volumes with gilt titles to the spine, marble paper covered boards, anddecorative floralpastedowns. Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve (December 23, 1804 in Boulogne-sur-Mer October 13, 1869 in Paris) was a literary critic and one of the major figures of French literary history. After several books of poetry and a couple of failed novels, Sainte-Beuve began to undertake literary research, of which the most important is Port-Royal, while also contributing to the Revue contemporaine. Sainte-Beuve had vast knowledge, wonderful tact, and acute perception of what was vital and significant in his subjects. A selection of the Causeries in English appeared as English Portraits (New York, 1875) and another as Essays on Men and Women (London, 1890). E. J. Trechmann published a translation (eight volumes, New York, 1909-11). Causeries du lundi was first published between 1851 and 1862. Nouveaux Lundis was first published between 1863 and 1870. These volumes bear the bookplate of Elizabeth Sherman. She was the youngest child of Charles Taylor Sherman and Eliza Williams. She was also the neice of the American Civil War General, William Tecumseh Sherman and Senator John Sherman. Considered one of the most beautiful and intelligent women in the Washington of the late 1870s to early 1880s Elizabeth was romantically linked with the American novelist, journalist and historian Henry Adams. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm with all covers and pages attached, although the front outer hinge of Volume 1 of Causeries is split and in need of repair. There is some wear to the extremities including heavy rubbing to the boards and leather, and a few marks to the spines. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and odd spot. There are bookplates to the front pastedowns. Overall the volumes are in good onlycondition..
