Index to "In Memoriam
London: Bradbury and Evans for Edward Moxon, , 1862. Small octavo. Original purple ribbed cloth, titles to front cover gilt, border to covers blocked in blind, cream coated endpapers. Housed in a velvet-lined red cloth solander box. Ownership inscription of the journalist Charles J. Hadfield (1821–1884) to verso of front free endpaper, bookplate of Thomas Hutchinson (Morpeth) and small bookseller's description to front pastedown. Inscription identifying Lewis Carroll as author to front free endpaper, facsimile of Dodgson's signature tipped-in to rear pastedown. Some wax stains to cloth, text block separating between pp. 40 and 41, an excellent copy. First edition of one of Dodgson's earliest publications in book form. Endorsed by Tennyson, this anonymous index to his Elegy on Arthur Hallam was suggested and edited by Dodgson, though "one or more of his sisters chiefly compiled the work." The Index was also issued in sheets for binding with In Memoriam, by then in its eleventh edition, having been first published in 1850.
