Anglo Saxon Review. A Quarterly Miscellany.
London and New York, John Lane, 1899 /1901 - 10 volumes, quarto. Original full sheep skin, 4 volumes in black, 4 in red and 2 volumes in cream, each with different and elaborate gilt decoration to boards, all volumes top edges gilt. A little light shelf wear, minor foxing to some edges, otherwise a fine looking set. Illustrated. First printings throughout, of this miscellaneous historical and cultural review edited by Lady Randolph Spencer Churchill, mother of Winston, who advised Lady Randolph on the project in the months preceding publication, suggesting that it should endeavour "to preserve a permanent record of the thoughts and aspirations of our times, which vary as swiftly as light changes on running water, for wiser ages yet unborn." The Anglo-Saxon Review contains articles by Henry James, Winston himself, George Gissing, Stephen Crane, and many other contemporary worthies. The subscription list included heads of state, royalty, and some of the wealthiest families of Britain and the United States. Sets in this condition are rare - the binding materials being especially prone to wear.
