2 UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT FAIRY TALES BY CATHERINE GLADSTONE STEWART 1863 UNIQUE
1863. THIS IS A USED BOOK - PLEASE SEE DESCRIPTION FOR DETAILS. A PAIR OF UNIQUE MANUSCRIPTS : Stewart, Catherine Gladstone. (Catherine of Wickham.) Two Unpublished Manuscript Fairy Tales : The Fairy Tale of the Ugly King & Princess Liliola. 1863 & 1865. Two Volumes. Small quarto; 225p + 403p. Full brown morocco Oxford style bindings, blind panelled, bevelled edges. Spines blind ruled with small motifs, without lettering. Pages are numbered and executed in fine copper plate script. The Ugly King bears a dedication to "My Dear Sister". A pencil note at the front of each volume records that the author died of cholera in Italy in 1869. It has thus far not been possible to identify the authoress, even taking into account the different possible spellings of Catherine/Catharine - Stewart/Steuart - Gladstone/ Gladstones etc. The stories appear to be tales of medieval chivalry of a style and content popular in the mid nineteenth century, with characters such as King Benvenuto and Fidelio. Extensive online searching of union catalogues show these to be almost certainly unpublished.
