Campbell, Thomas: The Pleasures of Hope, with Other Poems. Edinburgh: printed for Mundell, Doig, & Stevenson; London: J. Murray, 1808. 9th edition. 8vo., pp. [vi], 134, 17, [i] + 4 plates. Sporadic foxing largely affecting plates. Contemporary tan tree calf, gilt double-lines to spine, traces of missing label. Upper joint splitting but cords holding firm, Spine rubbed and a bit chipped but still good overall. Ownership inscription to title-page: 'Letitia Prichard's, October 10th 1814'. On 27 April 1799 Mundell published Campbell's The Pleasures of Hope. It was an immediate success, and created eager expectations of future greatness. [...] The poem's popularity is an indication of the prevailing taste, still far more at ease with eighteenth-century didactic poetry than with the innovations of Wordsworth and Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads. But the poem was also fortunate in its timing. It was peculiarly welcome to those in sympathy with political reform who were at their most despondent over the bloodshed of the French Revolution. Campbell's poem found ways of asserting radical sentiments that avoided the deadly charge of association with 'French principles'. He denounced the destroyers of Polish liberty, and breathed vengeance on the oppressors of India and supporters of the slave trade. A second part was equally welcome in its rejection of a scepticism that reduced humanity to a 'frail and feverish being of an hour' (The Pleasures of Hope, line 338). But Campbell never had confidence that he could sustain the reputation thus early established. He was unable to develop his next poetical project, a celebration of Edinburgh to be called 'The Queen of the North', beyond a few fragments.' (ODNB)   Ref: 51823

Carlyle, Thomas: The Letters and Speeches of Oliver Cromwell. London: Methuen and Co., 1904. 3 vols., 8vo., pp. lxii, 523; xii, 557; xiii, 604. Title pages in red and black. Very light intermittent foxing. Green cloth, gilt. Spines sunned, head- and tail caps creased with small tears to vol. II. Tail edges uncut and foxed, dusting to head edge. Very good. Gift inscription to Sybil A. Lucas from Mr Claude Montefiore, Feb. 8th 1911 to f.f.e.p. vol. I. Ownership inscription of P.A. Slack, March 1973 in pencil to f.f.e.p. of each volume. The inscription notes that this set was a gift to Ms Lucas from the scholar and founder of Liberal Judaism Claude Montefiore (1858–1938), though we do not believe the handwriting to be his. His sister Alice married into the Lucas family, so Sybil was perhaps a relative of hers.   Ref: 41708
