Ormond - a tale, Edgeworth, Maria
13 Edgeworth, Maria Ormond - a tale
London Macmillan & Co Ltd 1895 Schloesser, Carl 
Illustrated by Carl Schloesser. Introduction by Anne Thackeray Ritchie. pp xvi, 344, edges uncut, slightly age-toned, otherwise good and tight, no signatures, endpapers slightly marked, standard red cloth, dull and slightly rubbed, the spine is faded dull and slightly marked and worn. Maria Edgeworth was a novelist and children's writer of Anglo-Irish descent. She was one of the first realist writers in children's literature. Maria Edgeworth was born at Black Bourton, Oxfordshire, on January 1, 1768. She was the second child of Richard Lovell Edgeworth and Anna Maria Edgeworth (née Elers) and thus an aunt of Francis Ysidro Edgeworth. Maria's mother died when she was a young child. On her father's second marriage to Honora Sneyd in 1773, she went with him to Ireland, where she eventually was to settle on his estate, Edgeworthstown, in County Longford. There, she mixed with the Anglo-Irish gentry, particularly Kitty Pakenham (later the wife of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington), Lady Moira, and her aunt Margaret Ruxton of Black Castle. Maria was sent away to school for years by her stepmother. Upon returning home at the age of fourteen, Maria helped take care of her many silblings. She acted as manager of her father's estate later drawing on this experience for her novels about the Irish. Edgeworth's early literary efforts were melodramatic rather than realistic. She wrote many children's novels that conveyed moral lessons to their audience. One of her schoolgirl novels features a villain who wore a mask made from the skin of a dead man's face. Edgeworth's first published work was Letters for Literary Ladies in 1795, followed in 1796 by her first children's book, The Parent's Assistant (which included Edgeworth's celebrated short story The Purple Jar), and in 1800 by her first novel Castle Rackrent, which was an immediate success. The Parent's Assistant was Maria's first collection of children's stories, influenced by her father's work and perspectives on childrens education. Edgeworth was an extremely popular author who was compared with her contemporary writers Jane Austin and Sir Walter Scott. Mr. Edgeworth, a well-known author and inventor, encouraged his daughter's career, and has been criticized for his insistence on approving and editing her work. The tales in The Parent's Assistant were approved by her father before he would allow them to be read to her younger siblings (he was married four times and had 22 children). Castle Rackrent was written and submitted for anonymous publication without his knowledge. It is speculated that her stepmother and siblings also helped in the editing process of Edgeworth's work. Edgeworth wrote many books and used her earnings to support her siblings. In 1802 the Edgeworth family went abroad, first to Brussels and then to Consulate France (during the Peace of Amiens, a brief lull in the Napoleonic Wars). They met all the notables, and Maria received a marriage proposal from a Swedish courtier, Count Edelcrantz. Her letter on the subject seems very cool, but her stepmother assures us in the Augustus Hare Life and Letters that Maria loved him very much and did not get over the affair quickly. They came home to Ireland in 1803 on the eve of the resumption of the wars and Maria returned to writing. Tales of Fashionable Life, The Absentee and Ormond are novels of Irish life. Maria's work, "An Essay on the Noble Science of Self-Justification" (1795) is written for a female audience in which she convinces women that the fair sex is endowed with an art of self-justification and women should use their gifts to continually challenge the force and power of men, especially their husbands, with wit and intelligence. It humorously and satirically explores the feminine argumentative method. On a visit to London in 1813 Maria met Lord Byron (whom she didn't like) and Humphry Davy. She entered into a long correspondence with Sir Walter Scott after the publication of Waverley in 1814, in which he gr

18 Hammond, Nicholas. Modern Wildlife Painting (Richard Fitter's copy)
Robertsbridge Pica Press 1998 1873403550 / 9781873403556 Cloth Very Good Very Good 
Very well illustrated, large quarto, pp 239, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [A fine survey of twentieth century art and artists. From the library of the naturalist and conservationist Richard Fitter, with his stamp on the front endpaper.]. {During the past century the western world has shown an unprecedented interest in wildlife and its identification and conservation, and the art of the era has both stimulated and reflected this interest. This stunning book examines the various forms of wildlife art-from photographic hyper-realism to the abstract-each illustrated by paintings or prints that best represent the genre. Nicholas Hammond points out that in the nineteenth century, wildlife art was primarily of interest to the wealthy, and animals were commonly depicted in paintings as quarry or as fierce beasts at odds with humans. Now artists are more likely to focus on the vulnerability of animals to people in order to further the cause of their conservation and the preservation of their habitats. Hammond provides a masterly analysis of the wildlife art of this century, discussing the differences in the traditions of North American and European wildlife art; changes in printing processes over time; the growth of illustrated magazines; the establishment of commercial galleries; and the changes in styles and approaches. He then presents a survey of artists from Bruno Liljefors and Archibald Thorburn to Chagall and Picasso. The book concludes with a selection of brief biographies of the more influential artists of the century, including most of those whose work is depicted in the preceding pages. More than 140 paintings or prints are reproduced in color, representing the work of 89 artists.}
