Corvey; CME 3-628-47411-6; NSTC 2D8689 (BI BL, C; NA MH); xOCLC.
Notes. Preface, pp. [v]–xviii, responds to criticisms levelled against religious fiction, while conceding that the defence might not serve fully in the case of the present tales: ‘A desire to render some feeble testimony to a class of literature, conscientiously believed by the writer to be of useful tendency, has alone elicited observations calculated, in many respects, to condemn rather than to serve the work which succeeds them. “The Democrat”. and “The Hugonot”, were written some years ago; and perhaps, had they been more recent productions, might have appeared in a different form’ (p. xvii). ‘The Democrat’ runs to vol. 2, p. 114, and is followed by ‘Notes’, pp. [115]–129; ‘The Hugonot’, from vol. 2, p. [131] to vol. 3, p. 327, followed by ‘Notes’, pp. [328]–335. ‘Advertisement’ to the tale of ‘The Hugonot’ is found on p. [132] in vol. 2.

ECB 216 (Feb 1832).
Corvey; CME 3-628-47765-4; NSTC 2W20439 (BI BL, O); xOCLC.
Notes. Half-titles read ‘Wilding’. Preface, pp. [v]–xv, (perhaps fancifully) refers to an original co-authorship, involving a friend, with Richardson, Fielding, Le Sage, Cervantes, Scott, William Godwin, and Bulwer Lytton’s Pelham being named as the authors’ models: the deleterious effect of Godwin’s stylistic influence on the friend had led to its initial abandonment. The same preface concludes with a Swiftian dedication to ‘Prince Posterity’. Colophons of T. C. Hansard, Paternoster Row.

1832: 6     ANON.
O’RUARC, AN IRISH TALE.
Dublin: Richard Milliken and Son, 104, Grafton-Street, 1832.
ii, 126p. 8vo. 2s 6d (t.p.).
D LO 502; xNSTC; xOCLC.
Notes. Preface, pp. [i]–ii, signed ‘The Author, Trinity College, June 1832’. This is addressed to Lady Morgan (unknown to the author), and expresses admiration of Morgan’s talent, especially her ‘recording of Irish grievances and observations on events resulting from absentee landlords’. The work originated from ‘an idea inspired by her “Absenteeism” in which she notes the “wild legend” surrounding the death of O’Ruarc, Prince of Breffini’. The author’s motives for writing are explained: ‘to attract attention, particularly of young people towards the history of their own country’, patriotic curiosity, and the ‘desolating effects of absenteeism on the country’. Collates in fours.

Corvey; CME 3-628-48455-3; NSTC 2L15300 (BI BL, C); xOCLC.
Notes. OCLC 12100720 (see below) attributes to Anna Maria Hall, rather unconvincingly on the grounds that a copy of Real Life (New York, 1835) was bound with a copy of Hall’s Tales of Woman’s Trials (New York, 1835). Dedication ‘To the Reader’, pp. [iii]–vi, signed ‘The Heir of the Portfolio’, followed by list of contents (1 p. unn.) giving various components of the narrative.

This notes: ‘The chief object of the Author of the following pages has been to exhibit the Evidences of Christianity as they must have appeared to a Jew, in our Saviour’s days […] The introduction of these points into a story seemed more likely to attract the reader, than if they had been barely exhibited to his view through the medium of an argumentative treatise’ (p. [iii]). Running titles vary according to narrative contents.

Notes. BP states: ‘The author was Thomas James Arnold, of Lincoln’s Inn.’ Each story has its own t.p.. Prefatory letter to ‘Alberic the Goddess’, vol. 2, p. [33], signed ‘The Author’, and addressed to ‘Gentle Ladies’, notes: ‘If, as is indeed certain, you shall find the events recorded in the following tale, to be too horrible and seemingly too unnatural, for the belief of your soft breasts, I feel bound, in justice to my humble self, to assure you, that they are not the issue of mine own imagination, […] but that they are truly related from the narrative of one who lived in the times, when they happened, namely in the year 1343.’ The work as a whole consists of: ‘Godwin and Goda’, vols. 1 and 2 (up to p. 30). The rest of vol. 2 contains: ‘Alberic the Godless’, pp. [31]–88; ‘Leonessa’, pp. [89]–253; ‘The Shadow’, pp. [255]–284; ‘The Impostor’, pp. [285]–323.

Printer’s marks and colophons of G. Schulze, 13, Poland Street. BP notes: ‘The scenes and seasons in which the characters of these stories play a part are very various—Anglo-Saxon England, Italy and Germany in the seventeenth century, and in the case of the two last sketches, ordinary society. Some of the stories appear to have historical foundations. “Alberic” is said to be founded on an old chronicle of the year 1343, and “Life and Death” on a fact recorded in a French work, “Causes Célèbres.” ’ LG lists as ‘Arnold’s Dramatic Sketches’.

Preface, pp. [v]–viii, addresses the novel’s subscribers: ‘To those most illustrious personages, whose royal names gild my list, I beg leave to express with the most grateful feeling, the high sense I entertain of the benevolence, that induced them so graciously, to grant my request. The most noble on my list, and another lady of the highest respectability—claim next my thanks, and everlastingly, for those favours, which a truly Christian feeling induced them repeatedly to bestow’ (pp. [v]–vi). It also refers to ‘the pain of body and mind, I more or less endured, for the last two years, in endeavouring to raise the necessary number of subscribers’, and offers the 1st vol. to those already secured, with the hope that ‘they may graciously exert their influence to procure me subscribers, to enable me to print the whole’ (pp. vii–viii). No subscription list found in the Corvey copy, nor in the BL copy (N. 942, 943). Jarndyce Catalogue CLIV, item 264, describes set with 8pp. Subscribers’ List in vol. 1, headed by Her Most Gracious Majesty the Queen.

Corvey; CME 3-628-48104-X; NSTC 2C14251 (BI BL, C, Dt, E, O; NA DLC).
Notes. Preface, pp. [i]–xi, notes: ‘some portion of my work has, in another form, already been published, and now appears with some of the scenes of a Sailor’s Life enlarged […]. Every scene is a scene of real life, not exaggerated’ (p. [i]). Reference is also made to fellow sailor-writers: ‘The gates of knowledge throughout the whole world are opened to us; but, I grieve to say, we slumber at the portals, or have hardly energy to enter. Some there are, and happy am I to bear witness to their talents—such are Parry, Franklin, Hall, Marryat, Glascock, Beaver, Beaufort, &c.—these men have exalted our profession, and stamp the lie upon the assertion , “that sailors are fools” ’ (p. vi). The preface concludes by pre-empting claims that the work derives from ‘the admirable Autobiography of Captain Basil Hall’: ‘The first number of the Metropolitan Magazine, which began in May, 1831, had the first chapter of this work in its pages. Captain Hall’s work did not appear until two months afterwards’ (p. xi). The work as a whole often reads like personal memoirs, though including fictional components such as dialogue; it also later became part of the Standard Novels series. Printer’s marks and colophons of A. J. Valpy, Red Lion Court, Fleet Street. Bentley MS list records print run of 750 copies. Originally adv. in Star (17 Mar 1832), as ‘in the press’.

One of the sailors more in advance, stumbled over what on examination proved to be a coffer of Irish black oak, curiously carved. Having brought it into the court, the Catholic clergyman belonging to the island happened to come up as we were examining the contents, which proved to be several rolls of parchment, closely written upon in the Spanish language. // The priest here offered his services to translate the manuscripts’ (pp. iii–iv). ‘Notes’ occupy pp. [291]–296 in vol. 1, pp [271]–282 in vol. 2, and pp. [258]–260 in vol. 3.

Preface, pp. [v]–xv, warns the reader against expecting an historical novel: ‘The accuracy which we have endeavoured to use in the delineation of manners could hardly be extended to the necessary historical allusions, for not only is the chronology of the period exceedingly confused, but many of the persons and events alluded to are so much a subject to antiquarian controversy, as to leave their very existence problematical’ (p. vi). Advs. verso facing t.p. in each vol. Printer’s marks and colophons read: ‘B. Bensley, Printer, Andover’.

The works of Scott in particular are deemed to have ‘done more good than perhaps any British author since Milton’s times’ (p. iv). Henry concludes by stating that: ‘In speaking of French Royalism, I have not wished or meant to confound the heroism of the valiant Vendeans and the officers of the brave national army, with those fanatics who plundered the protestants in the reaction of 1815’ (p. vi).

It notes: ‘The Twelve Volumes will consist […] of a Selection from the Author’s most approved Writings, interspersed with many Original Tales, than of an assemblage of all he has written; and he has been induced to make it, not as an ostentatious display, but as an Inheritance to his Children and a Legacy to his Country.’ No further volumes, however, were published; and the actual public release of the vol. appears to have been delayed by something like a fortnight after the advertised date of 31 Mar 1832 (see Gillian Hughes, ‘Introduction’ to the Stirling/South Carolina Edn. of Altrive Tales, Edinburgh University Press, 2003), p. xxvi).

Notes. Block notes: ‘Dr. A. Mitchell describes an earlier issue: “Sir Ralph Esher; or, Memoirs of the Court of Charles II. 3 vols., 1830.” ’ Sadleir (Item 1245) states that this was prepared in 1830 but not actually published until 1832, although a few copies with the older date may have strayed into the marketplace, and that vol. 2 of his own copy carries advs. for works published in 1830. ‘Introductory Letter of the Author’ in vol. 1, pp. [1]–3, effectively part of the narrative proper. Drop-head title on p. 33 reads: ‘Memoirs of Sir Ralph Esher’. Adv. list (2 pp.) at end of vol. 2 of ‘Interesting New Works just Published by Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley’. Colophons of C. and W. Reynell, Broad Street, Golden Square. BP quotes Hunt’s Autobiography (1860): ‘ “Sir Ralph Esher” was a fictitious autobiography. The opening of the court scenes were suggested by the locality of Epson, to which place we had removed. […] It was given to the world anonymously, and notwithstanding my wishes to the contrary, as a novel; but the publisher pleaded hard for the desirableness of so doing; and as he was a good-natured man, and had liberally enabled me to come from Italy, I could not say nay. It is not destitute of adventure, and I took a world of pains to make it true to the times which it pictured; but whatever interest it may possess is so entirely owing, I conceive, to a certain reflecting exhibition of character, and to facsimile imitations of the courts of Charles and Cromwell, that I can never present it to my mind in any other light than that of a veritable set of memoirs. // The reader may judge of the circumstances under which authors sometimes write, when I tell him that the publisher had entered into no regular agreement respecting this work; that he could decline receiving any more of it whenever it might please him to do so; that I had nothing else at the time to depend on for my family; that I was in very bad health, never writing a page that did not put my nerves into a state of excessive sensibility, starting at every sound; and that whenever I sent the copy up to London for payment, which I did every Saturday, I always expected, till I got a good way into the work, that he would send me word he had had enough.’

Preface, pp. [v]–vi, notes: ‘It has been frequently remarked concerning the class of periodicals of which the volume now submitted to the public is the youngest, that they present too uniform a resemblance to each other, and that, while increasing in number, their object and plan make no corresponding advances toward originality. […] Impressed with the belief that the taste for the wild and wonderful will endure as long as man retains the faculty of imagination, we have selected from the varied walks of literature the fairy track of Romance. On that enchanted path we purpose rambling from year to year […] In this introductory effort, the wish to give all the effect in our power to the graphic designs of Mr. Prout, has induced us to draw upon the resources of natives of the countries that supply the scenes illustrated. […] A proportion of the tales is entirely original, and was furnished for the work by an accomplished foreigner.’ This is followed by a list of contents (p. vii) and ‘List of Plates, Engraved under the Superintendence of Mr. E. I. Roberts’ (p. ix) for the 13 plates in the work. Contains: ‘The Fanatic. A Tale of the Netherlands. Freely Modernised from an Old Dutch Chronicle’, pp. [1]–35; ‘The Wax Figure’, pp. 36–76; ‘The Cottage of Koswara. A Hungarian Legend’, pp. 77–98; ‘The Black Gate of Treves. A Fragment from a Student’s Journal’, pp. 99–114; ‘Early Impressions’, pp. 115–135; ‘The Spy. A Tale of the Siege of Dresden, in 1813’, pp. 136–148; ‘The Vintner’s Daughter. From the Chronicles of the Free City of Frankfort on the Maine’, pp. 149–175; ‘The Prima Donna. A Tale of Music. In Fragments, from the Unpublished Reminiscences of an Amateur’, pp. 176–208; ‘The Siege of Prague. An Historical Anecdote of the “Thirty Years? War” ’, pp. 209–217; ‘The Conscript’, pp. 218–236; ‘The Rose of Rouen’, pp. 237–313. No record of any further issues, so the work in effect constitutes a single collection of tales. Printer’s mark and colophon of Bradbury and Evans, Bouverie Street.

Notes. BP notes that this is a ‘collection of sketches of American life, compiled by William [sic] Athearn Jones. […] From the contents of the papers referring to this work, it would appear that Miss Mitford’s connection with it was a nominal one’. The reference to William Athearn Jones is almost certainly erroneous, and should read James Athearn Jones, who was the author of various works connected to North America. Preface, pp. [iii]–vi, signed ‘Mary Russell Mitford’ and dated ‘Three Mile Cross, May, 1832’. This refers to the work as ‘another Collection of Native American Sketches’ edited by Mitford (p. [iii]) and notes: ‘the Stories came to me scattered over the Miscellaneous Collections of many years, some of them in MS. transcripts from books out of print or otherwise rare, and all or nearly all either wholly anonymous or distinguished by signatures evidently fictitious. Even in the list of Authors prefixed to my former Work, although I had taken much pains to be correct, I have discovered at least two errors of omission; the name of Mr. Sands […] and of Mr. Bryant, the great poet of America. […]. Of the Writers in the present Selection I am still more uncertain, though I believe them generally the same with the former. “The Young Backwoodsman” is, I am informed, the production of the Rev. Mr. Flint; “The Green Mountain Boy” bears the signature of Mr. Barker; “Modern Chivalry” assuredly belongs to my friend Miss Sedgwick; and I suspect Mr. Paulding’s keen and clever pen in “The Politician” and “The Azure Hose” ’ (pp. iv–v). Lists of contents (1 p. unn. each) precedes main text in each vol. Vol. 1 comprises: ‘The Politician’, pp. [1]–85; ‘Elizabeth Latimer’, pp. [86]–125; ‘The Squatter’, pp. [126]–225; ‘Pinchon’, pp. [226]–271; ‘The Devil’s Pulpit. A Legend’, pp. [272]–329; ‘The Binnacle’, pp. [330]–340. Vol. 2 consists of: ‘The Young Backwoodsman’ by Timothy Flint, pp. [1]–196; ‘Major Egerton’, pp. [197]–222; ‘An Adventure at Sea’, pp. [223]–271; ‘The Green Mountain Boy.

Notes. Erroneously attributed to Caroline Anne Bowles (afterwards Southey). Amelia Gillespie Smyth acknowledges her authorship of Selwyn in Search of a Daughter (originally serialized in Blackwood’s Magazine in 1827; see 1835: 93) in a letter to Sir Walter Scott, of 14 Aug 1827 (National Library of Scotland, MS 3904, ff. 230–1). The issue is outlined more fully by Sharon Ragaz in ‘Authorship in the Early Nineteenth Century: Evidence from the Scott Letter-Books’ (unpublished paper delivered to the Toronto Bibliographical Group, 2000). ‘Introduction’, pp. [iii]–iv, notes: ‘If it be asked why, amid a redundance of fictions of the most splendid and spirit-stirring description, the following pages were written, criticism may be disarmed by the reply of affection, that they were written, because every effort of memory, however, superfluous, and every touch of the pencil, however feeble, which recalled their delightful subject, was a source of gratification’ (p. [iii]). ‘Probation’ occupies pp. [1]–392, and is followed by ‘The Voiturer’s Daughter’, pp. [393]–455, and ‘The Deserter of Castel Gandolfo’, pp. [457]–473. Printer’s mark (verso of t.p.) reads: ‘Edinburgh: Printed by A. Balfour and Co. Niddry Street.’

Notes. Verso facing t.p. in each vol. notes: ‘Originally Published in Blackwood’s Magazine’. The full series ran in Blackwood’s from no. 28 (Aug 1830) to no. 42 (Aug 1837), with breaks; and the work was first published in book form in a pirated selection, New York 1831, as Affecting Scenes: Being Passages from the Diary of a Physician (OCLC). ‘Notice to the Reader’, pp. [v]–vi (in present edn.), dated ‘London, February 3, 1832’. In this, ‘the Editor’ looks for a favourable reception of the work in its present republished form: ‘He was led to indulge such hopes, by seeing the flattering terms in which this Diary was mentioned, from time to time, by many respectable journals in London and elsewhere, during its successive appearance in Blackwood’s Magazine; by the circumstances of its translation into the French language at Paris; and by its republication separately in America, where the sale has been so extensive, that the work is now stereotyped’ (p. [v]). This ‘Notice’ adds: ‘Much new matter , however, will be found introduced in the notes, and the whole has been very carefully revised—although some errors have crept in after all, owing chiefly to the work’s being printed in Edinburgh, while the Editor resided in London’ (p. vi). ‘Contents of Volume First’ occupies pp. [vii]–viii in vol. 1, followed by Introduction, pp. [ix]–xii. ‘Contents of Volume Second’ (1 p. unn.) precedes main text in vol. 2. Running titles vary according to chapter headings. Printer’s marks and colophons of Andrew Shortreed, Thistle Lane, Edinburgh. ER and LG list as ‘Diary of a Physician’. A 3rd vol. was published in 1838, and incorporated in later edns.
