CARLYLE, ALEXANDER (1722-1805)
AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF REV. DR. ALEXANDER CARLYLE Minister of Inveresk containing Memorials of the Men and Events of his Time
London & Edinburgh, William Blackwood and Sons 1840, 2nd edition, hb. Ill.: engraved frontispiece. Beautifully bound in full polished calf with marbled edges. 8vo, pp. x, 576. The binding is "signed" in tiny letters "J. Ramage/Edinburgh". The endpapers are marbled. A most handsome presentation.
¶ Carlyle (1722-1805) was a Scottish divine, nicknamed "Jupiter Carlyle" from his fine presence. He was minister of Inveresk, Midlothian from 1748-1805 and leader of the Scottish "Broad Church" party. He published political pamphlets. His autobiography was first printed in 1860. Our offering is the second edition, published in the same year. It is most handsomely bound, with marbled edges and endpapers, gilt-ruled lines and corner florets to the boards and the spine in compartments with a morocco spine label. There is a former owner's signature, dated 1900, on the first blank page, facing which is a more recent signature of a subsequent owner. A few pages show light marginal smudging, otherwise the text is exceptionally bright and clean. The binding shows only light shelf wear. A very good copy.
