MARSTON: A NOVEL, IN THREE VOLUMES. BY A LADY.

Star (19 Dec 1834); LG 935: 853 (20 Dec 1834); ER 60: 535 (Jan 1835); ECB 370 (Dec 1834).
ABu SB.82379.Sai(m); NSTC 2S1997 (BI BL, C, E, O); xOCLC.
Notes. ‘Advertisement’, pp. [i]–iv, notes: ‘Since the present work has been in the press, one, if not two novels, bearing titles similar to that of “Marston” have appeared; but, were there no other evidence, the difference of the story would at once prove that there has been no “conveying” in the case. Competition then need hardly be disclaimed; and it would have been madness, indeed, for a novice to enter the lists with a writer at once so elegant and profound as the author of “Darnley.” ’ The author is presumably referring here to G. P. R. James’s The Life and Adventures of John Marston Hall (1834: 39). The present novel has been attributed to Rosalia St. Clair (see e.g. BLPC, NSTC), but wrongly so; and indeed such a prefatory statement from the prolific hand of this pseudonymous writer would be disingenuous in the extreme. MC (9 Feb 1835) gives as ‘By Madame de St. Claire, née Rumbold’, and it could be that the attribition to Rosalia St. Clair stems from this; however, the attribution to ‘Madame de St. Claire’ can only remain tentative at present, as there is no substantiating evidence for this ascription elsewhere. The ABu copy is in blue paper wrappers, apparently original. Main narrative describes English characters in a European setting, with some passages of French and Italian. ‘Notes’ occupy vol. 1, pp. [299]–307; vol. 2, pp. [285]–292; vol. 3, pp. [283]–297. Printer’s marks and colophons of Thomas Hookham, Old Bond Street.
Further edn: German trans., 1845–7 [as Marston, oder Erlebnisse eines Weltmannes].

Preface, pp. [vii]–ix, states: ‘I am in the habit of thinking for myself; and although prejudice be clothed in the sacred vesture of antiquity, and sanctioned by general use, I deem it no sacrilege to strip and expose her when truth is the object: I have therefore been tempted to brave the odium populi, and to violate the rites of usage, having been long impressed with a sense of the advantages likely to result from a series of well-digested reflections upon the data furnished in the exercise of my professional duties: and some years have now passed since many of the observations, contained in the following sheets, were first comitted to paper—having laid them aside, on being anticipated in my design by the appearance of the “Extracts from the Diary of a Physician;” [i.e. 1832: 86] nor is it likely that I would ever again have resumed my intention of laying them before the Public, if my friends had not flattered me into a belief that my performance has still sufficient claims to originality, to entitle me to expect a share of public indulgence’ (pp. viii–ix).

Notes. Dedication (1 p. unn.) to ‘Alessandro Manzoni, as to the Genius of the Place, are dedicated these Fruits, gathered on the Soul of Italian Fiction’, dated ‘London, Dec. 1, 1835’. Prefatory notice, pp. [vii]–xiii, with same date, states: ‘I began this tale two years ago at Rome. On removing to Naples, I threw it aside for “The Last Days of Pompeii,” which required more than “Rienzi” the advantage of residence within reach of the scenes described. The fate of the Roman Tribune continued, however, to haunt and impress me, and, sometime after “Pompeii” was published, I renewed my earlier undertaking. I regarded the completion of these volumes, indeed, as a kind of duty;—for having had occasion to read the original authorities from which modern historians have drawn their accounts of the life of Rienzi, I was led to believe that a very remarkable man had been superficially judged, and a very important period crudely examined. And this belief was sufficiently strong to induce me at first to mediate a more serious work upon the life and times of Rienzi. Various reasons concurred against their project—and I renounced the Biography to commence the Fiction. I have still, however, adhered with a greater fidelity than is customary in Romance, to all the leading events of the public life of the Roman Tribune; and the Reader will perhaps find in these pages a more full and detailed account of the rise and fall of Rienzi, than in any English work of which I am aware. […] If I may use the word Epic in its most modest and unassuming acceptation, this Fiction, in short, though indulging in dramatic situation, belongs, as a whole, rather to the Epic than the Dramatic school’ (pp. [vii]–ix). Errata to vols. 2 and 3 pasted on last page of each respective vol. Narrative proper ends on vol. 3, p. 343, and is followed by ‘Notes to Book X’, pp. [345]–356. Verso facing t.p. lists 3 ‘works by the same Author. Published by Messrs Saunders and Otley’. In vol. 1 printer’s mark (verso of t.p.) and colophon read: ‘Saville, Printer, (late Harjette and Saville,) 107, St. Martin’s Lane’; vol. 2 has printer’s mark (verso of t.p.) of ‘E.

Notes. Dedication ‘to the Viscountess Lady Milton’, p. [iii]. This is followed by a Preface, pp. [v]–viii, which implies female authorship, and notes: ‘With regard to the critical world, should her little work find its way there, she has nothing to say in extenuation of the sometimes imputed error of taking up the pen, nor in defence of the produce of her literary hours. The circumstance, however, that the present volume is her first offence, should it be so construed, as well as the nature of the compositions submitted to the public, should exempt her from great blame, if it does not from cavil. She is, however, quite aware, that when an author ventures to publish, he has no reason to consider himself harshly dealt with, when reminded, in a proper spirit, of his faults. The conference has been voluntarily sought, and, to a certain degree, the result ought to be patiently received. Although criticism is too often founded upon acrimony and party feeling; yet she cannot but hope, that in the present instance, as there is but little in the volume itself to merit and hostile attack, and nothing as regards herself to provoke one, she may escape the ordeal with the expression of that opinion which an impartial consideration of its pretentions ought honestly to draw forth’ (pp. vii–viii). Continuous roman and arabic pagination, although text proper begins after a gap on p. [13]. Contains: ‘First Love’, pp. [13]–57; ‘The Daughter’, pp. [59]–124; ‘The Broken Heart’, pp. [125]–171; ‘The Heiress’, pp. [173]–226; ‘Blanche Dacre’, pp. [227]–278; ‘Flirting’, pp. [279]–291.

O Pettingell.698; NSTC 2PER3535; OCLC 46658768 (1 lib).
Notes. Preface, dated ‘February, 11, 1836’. This refers to ‘the completion of the First Volume of our little Miscellany’, and is immediately followed by ‘Index’, these forming together two unn. pages immediately prior to the individual numbers, each of which are 8 pp. long. First number, described at head as ‘No 1, Vol I’, is dated alongside ‘Thursday, April 2, 1835’, with the price given as ‘One Penny’. Each weekly number (similarly priced) usually has a lurid illustration before the main printed text, and there is a large fictional component in the contents, with some stories continuing through several numbers. Copy seen lacks separate t.p. for vol. 2, which commences at no. 49, dated ‘Thursday, February 18, 1836’. This sequence ends with no. 91, dated ‘Thursday, December 8, 1836’, and at foot of last page ‘All published’ is written in hand. The Bodleian copy described here is bound in one volume, and lacks vol. 1, nos. 15 and 24, and vol. 2, nos. 65 and 73. Printed attributions at end of pieces (which include ‘T. P.’) indicate several authors and derivation from a variety of sources. Colophons in individual numbers read: ‘Printed and Published by G. Drake, 12, Houghton Street, Clare Market.’

BL 12614.cc.23; NSTC 2R8011; OCLC 35989467 (1 lib).
Notes. Preface (3 pp. unn.) is followed by ‘Advertisement’ (1 p. unn.). The latter states: ‘It is but fair to inform the reader, that in the following pages the original idea of the young Surgeon’s character is taken from that of Henri Muller in M. Dumas’s excellent melo-drama, “Angèle” ’. In vols. 1 and 2 printer’s marks read: ‘Printed by J. Smith, rue Montmorency’. BL copy examined has Longmans’ publication details deleted by hand from imprint, and replaced with ‘F. Coghlan, 5 King William Street, Strand’. ECB also gives Coghlan as publisher. LG 998: 157 (5 Mar 1836) lists what is apparently the reissued edn. of 1836, at 21s (MC for 25 Feb 1836 also adv. the novel as to be published ‘in a few days’).
Further edns: reissued, with cancel t.p., 1836 (NSTC); revised, 1847 as The Parricide; or, the Youth’s Career in Crime; Philadelphia 1836 (OCLC); French trans., 1836. The 1847 revised and retitled edn. is not to be confused with F. M. Reynolds’s The Parricide. A Domestic Romance. By the Author of “Miserrimus” (1836: 59), an entirely separate work.

Notes. Preface (1 p. unn.) notes: ‘To write, or to omit writing a preface, is at an Author’s option. Imitating the example of those who refrain from so doing, I shall compose none:—unless, indeed, that may be deemed a preface, which is merely designed as an apology for intrusion, and a prayer that indulgence may be shewn towards the many faults which I myself perceive in the work now offered to the Public, as well as to those which, though to me invisible, I nevertheless cannot but be aware exist in it, and will, I fear, be more apparent to the reader.’ Vol. 1 has colophon of J.

Notes. Preface, pp. [v]–vi, begins: ‘As the first Series of this work (entitled the Romance of Ancient History) has been mistaken in several instances for quite another book, The Romance of History, the author has judged it best, agreeably to the suggestion of his friends, to prefix the present title to this second Series. The plan observed in this part of the work is exactly the same as that pursued in the foregoing portion of it. Herodotus is still the historian from whom he makes his selections, and his scenes are still drawn from the second book of this writer, which contains the history of Egypt’ (p. [v]). This is followed by an ‘Introduction’, pp. [vii]–xi. The items comprise: ‘The Ovethrow of Tyranny’, pp. [1]–131; ‘Preliminary Note’ (p. [132]) to ‘The Retreat of Sabako’, which itself runs from p. [133] to the end of vol. 2. Signatures are labelled ‘Vol. I’ and ‘Vol. II’ respectively, but append the abbreviation ‘S.S.’, probably indicating ‘Second Series’.

Thos. Grenville’ embossed in gilt on front cover. Bound at the start of vol. 1 of the 2nd ser. is an autograph note from Seymer, which accompanied the presentation copy, and reads: ‘Dear Sir, Having just published a second series of my work, I am encouraged from your former kindness to request you will do me the honour of accepting a Copy. I have prefixed my name to this continuation, in pursuance of the advice of my friends and earnestly hope this step may meet your approbation.

Notes. Erroneously attributed to Caroline Anne Bowles (afterwards Southey). Amelia Gillespie Smyth acknowledges her authorship of this work (originally serialized in Blackwood’s Magazine in 1827) 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). Dedication, p. [iii], to ‘Mrs. S. C. Hall in Gratitude for the Pleasure Derived from the Perusal of her “Sketches of Irish Character” the Following Pages are with Sincerest Esteem Inscribed’. This is followed by a Preface, pp. [v]–vi, dated Jan 1835, which states that the pieces collected together were originally published in Blackwood’s and Fraser’s Magazines. Vol. 1 consists of ‘Selwyn in Search of a Daughter’. Vol. 2 contains ‘Tales of the Wedding’, comprising separate tales in the form of five chapters: ‘A Wedding at College’, pp. 10–38; ‘A Wedding in Hospital’, pp. 39–78; ‘A Wedding under Ground’, pp. 79–117; ‘A Wedding in Court’, p. 118–161; ‘A Wedding at School’, pp. 162–199. This sequence is followed by two chapters, with verso running titles reading ‘Recontres on the Road’ instead of ‘Tales of the Wedding’, and comprising two chapters: ‘The Resuscitated’, pp. 200–239, and ‘The Dead Alive’, pp. 240–289. Vol. 2 concludes with ‘Marriage Impromptu’, pp. 290–309 (with matching running titles). Vol. 3 contains ‘The Bachelor’s Beat’, which consists of separate tales in the form of seven chapters: ‘The First of September’, pp. [1]–54; ‘Emily Fortescue’, pp. 55–112; ‘A Day at the Sea-Side’, pp. 157–195; ‘The Bachelor’s Christmas’, pp. 196–237; ‘Saturday’, pp. 238–275; ‘April Fools’, pp. 276–313.

Notes. Dedication (1 p. unn.) to ‘Sir George Strickland, Bart. M.P. These Volumes Are Inscribed as a Slight Tribute of the Author’s Esteem’. Preface, pp. [i]–iv, notes: ‘The Author of these volumes has, she trusts, entered upon untrodden ground, at least, no writer of later date, than that of the illustrious father of English poetry, Geoffrey Chaucer (the Sir Walter Scott of the thirteenth century) has founded a work of fiction on the plan of the ancient devotional pilgrimage […] Each of the votaries to the shrine of our Lady of Walsingham, in this work, like Chaucer’s Canterbury Pilgrims, is pledged to relate a tale. The present volumes contain those of Cardinal Wolsey, King Henry, the Abbot of Glastonbury, Queen Catherine, the Emperor Charles, and the Abbess of Ely. // Those of Mary of France, Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, Anna Boleyn, Sir Thomas Wyatt, &c. &c., are necessarily deferred till a Second Series of the Pilgrims of Walsingham.’ The narrative frame and each tale have their own t.ps., but also observe continuous chapter divisions. Vol. 1 contains: ‘Cardinal Wolsey’s Tale. The Saxon Widow’s Vow’, pp. [93]–167; ‘King Henry’s Tale. William Rufus and the Salmon-Pasty’, pp. [175]–215; ‘The Abbot’s Tale.

Notes. Preface, pp. [iii]–v, end-dated ‘London, June 26, 1835’. In this the authoress expresses diffidence in ‘sending forth to the world a tale which by its title gives promise of treating not only of history, but of Scottish history; an act of presumption of which she is anxious to clear herself;—and at the same time she wished to reassure those readers who may not like historical novels from a woman’s pen, that she has entered no farther into public affairs, than as they may have influence the fortunes and feelings of one admirable woman who forms the subject of the following memoir’ (p. [iii]). The preface ends by observing that ‘[f]or reasons which may be understood by her friends […] the tale of Blanche was written in the year 1832’. The constituent tales are: ‘Winifred, Countess of Nithsdale’, vol. 1, p. [1]–vol. 2, p. 157; ‘The Hampshire Cottage’, vol. 2, pp. [159]–336; and ‘Blanche’, which occupies vol. 3. Printer’s marks and colophons of Samuel Bentley, Dorset Street, Fleet Street. Bentley MS List records print run of 1,500 copies. BP notes: ‘ “Tales of the Peerage and Peasantry” was the subject of a parody by W. M. Thackeray in his Novels by Eminent Hands under the title of “Lords and Liveries,” by the author “Dukes and Dejeuners,” “Hearts and Diamonds,” “Marchionesses and Milliners,” etc.’ LG lists as ‘by the Author of the “Chaperon” ’ (see 1833: 73).

Its appearance excited considerable sensation in that country, from the circumstance of its author being a son-in-law of the justly celebrated Manzoni, which gave rise to an idea that the author of “I Promessi Sposi” might probably have had a hand in its composition. The Translator’s attention was first drawn to the book from seeing its publication announced in those terms by the “Foreign Quarterly Review.” It has since obtained popularity on the Continent and been translated into French.’ Printer’s mark and colophon of Richard Taylor, Red Lion Court, Fleet Street.

Preface (2 pp. unn.), dated ‘Saughtree, Liddesdale, March, 1835’, describes this work as ‘fictitious biography’, apologizing for the fact that the author is ‘not so much satisfied with the work himself’. This concludes: ‘On the whole, he [i.e. the author] certainly does entertain an opinion that it contains something of a redeeming character, and therefore submits it to the public, fearing little from censure, and hoping as little from praise.’ Colophon reads: ‘Newcastle: Printed at the Courant Office by J.

Dedication to ‘Peter Turnerelli, Esq. whose eminent talents as a Sculptor are too well known and appreciated to need the feeble tribute of filial applause, this Volume, written during a sojourn on the banks of the river whose chivalry it treats of, is dedicated, in gratitude for a carefully-bestowed education, and in testimony of respect and admiration, by his affectionate Son, The Author’ (p. [iii]).
