Corvey; NSTC 2B6668 (BI BL, C, O; NA DLC); OCLC 21014495 (11 libs).
Notes. DNB attributes to Michael alone. Series-t.p. precedes t.p. proper, and reads: ‘The Library of Romance. Edited by Leitch Ritchie. Vol. I. The Ghost-Hunter and his Family. By the O’Hara Family. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 65, Cornhill. 1833’. Preface to the Series, pp. [iii]–xii, precedes the story of ‘The Ghost-Hunter and his Family’. This states: ‘It is some years since the Editor of this work conceived the idea of publishing a series of original works of fiction, at little more than a fourth part of the usual price. At that time the business of novel-publishing touched upon its zenith’ (p. [v]). It continues later: ‘The Editor would willingly indulge himself in tracing the causes of decline and fall of this system […] were it not irrelevant to his present purpose. All he has now to do is to exhibit the nature of his own plan […] The price given will be regulated in the first place, by merit of the work, and in the second place, by the popularity of its writer; and the sum agreed upon will be paid in bank notes immediately on the assignment of the copyright. // Each volume will be fairly brought before the public. No expense will be spared’ (pp. vii–viii). As a result, the editor anticipates a changed fiction industry: ‘One effect of the plan will be to diminish the number of novels; for it is manifest, that no work which is not presumed to be calculated for extensive circulation, will be published at such a price. This will be a benefit even to the book-sellers themselves […] for the great majority of existing novels is formed of unsuccessful ones’ (p. ix). According to the same preface, the series will include: original novels by well-known and unknown authors; translations of novels in foreign languages; adaptations of works in foreign languages; reprints and adaptations of American novels. ‘Advertisement’ (1 p. unn.) follows half-title of ‘The Ghost-Hunter and his Family’. Adv. (1 p. unn.) following main text features vol. 2 of ‘The Library of Romance’: ‘Schinderhannes’ by Leitch Ritchie. Printer’s mark and colophon of Bradbury and Evans, Bouverie Street’. LG lists as ‘Library of Romance, edited by Leitch Ritichie, Vol. I. 6s cloth’.

Notes. Dedication to ‘the Baroness J. de Rothschild’, p. [v], is followed by the Preface, pp. [vii]–xii, dated ‘Paris, May 1833’. This notes that ‘an attempt has been made to produce a narrative, founded principally on fact; but connected by a few fictitious adventures […]. The purpose of this tale being to elucidate history; not to delineate weakness or eccentricity, which are the more special objects of a novel’ (p. viii). ‘Errata’ (1 p. unn.) to vol. 3 appear at the end of the vol. after p. 242. Printer’s marks on versos of t.ps. read ‘Imprimerie Selligue, 131, rue Montmartre.’ This edn. is bibliographically identical to a Paris 1833 edn. published by A. and W. Galignani, almost certainly replacing with a cancel t.p. the original French publisher’s imprint with that of Smith, Elder, and Co. The Galignani copy is held in Corvey (CME 3-628-47141-9).

Notes. According to Blanck, the edn. forming the present entry is made up from sheets of the original US edn., with a cancel t.p. inserted. ‘Advertisement’, pp. [5]–6, signed ‘The Publishers’, describes the process of selection and publication of the tales. ‘Introduction. To the Misters Harpers, at their Store in New-York City. Glauber-Spa, July —’, pp. [7]–19, signed ‘Sharon Clapp’, fictitiously relates the origin of the tales.

Vol. 1 comprises: Catharine Maria Sedgwick, ‘Le Bossu’, pp. [23]–108; James Kirke Paulding, ‘Childe Roeliff’s Pilgrimage’, pp. [109]–189; William Cullen Bryant, ‘The Skeleton’s Cave’ , pp. [191]–239; Anon., ‘Medfield’, pp. [241]–276.

Sands, ‘Boyuca’, pp. [221]–263. Advs. (2 pp. unn.) precede t.p. in vol. 1. Originally published New York 1832 (NSTC, OCLC). LG gives: ‘Harper’s Library of Select American Novels: Vols. I and II. Tales of Glauber Spa; Vols. III and IV. Westward Ho, 12mo. 6s. each, cloth’. Existing sources do not clarify whether this ‘6s each’ pricing refers to the individual titles or volumes; however, see notes to Westward Ho! (1833: 55[b]) for additional information on pricing. ECB 525 lists under ‘Sedgwick, (Catherine M.)’. All the tales in this compilation, excepting ‘Boyuca’, were published again as Childe Roeliff’s Pilgrimage, and Other Tales (1834: 4).

Notes. Preface, pp. [iii]–iv, dated ‘***** April 23, 1833’. This claims that the ‘Tale is woven from real events; and he who gives it to the world has undertaken rather the task of a compiler, than that of the author’ (p. [iii]). It adds: ‘Should any of the idlers who have leisure to waste on trifles, attempt to pry into so unimportant a secret as the name of the individual whose humble task it has been from a Memoir to construct a Romance, their ingenuity will be exercised in vain:—that secret […] he trusts and believes that he shall carry to a grave, which (amidst a sea of infirmities and care) smiles upon him, near and welcome—the Haven of Repose’ (p. iv). Vols. 1 and 3 have printer’s marks and colophons of Samuel Bentley, Dorset Street, Fleet Street: vol. 2 has printer’s mark and colophon of Ibotson and Palmer, Savoy Street, Strand.

Notes. List of contents, p. [iii], precedes Preface, pp. [v]–viii. The latter notes: ‘With respect to the contents of this Second Series, the Author has only to observe, that the volumes constituting the First Series had an excellent sale, considering that they were of Irish manufacture. They are now getting into a third edition, and much of their success may probably be ascribed to the fact of their never having been puffed; for no man excites more notice than he who runs counter to the fashion’ (p. [v]). It also states: ‘when this work was nearly ready for publication, a calamitous fire reduced the printer’s establishment to ashes. The “Traits and Stories” unhappily shared the same fate: the first edition went off brilliantly in the course of one night. Had the book appeared as it was then printed, it would have rivalled any thing coming from the first houses of London. It was again put through the press in a hurry, and under circumstances highly disadvantageous; and yet its typographical execution is certainly creditable to the country’ (pp. vii–viii). Lists of contents (1 p. unn. each) precede main text in vols. 2 and 3. Vol. 1 comprises: ‘The Midnight Mass’, pp. [1]–150; ‘The Donagh; or, the Horse Stealers’, pp. [151]–208; ‘Phil Purcel, the Pig-Driver.

Each volume will be, however, complete in itself, and only connected with the others by the general title and introduction. The second series will appear next season, and will consist of a modern tale, entitled, The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Charles Cranston.’ ‘Proem by Hugh Hay, Esquire, Grassmarket, Edinburgh’, pp. [v]–xxx, signed ‘Hugh Hay’ and dated ‘Grassmarket, Edinburgh, Nov. 1824 [sic]’. ‘The Author’s Introduction’ occupies pp. [xxxi]–lxix and functions as a fictitious frame narrative.

This notes: ‘It seems as if, without a word or two of explanation, the reader would be puzzled, and perhaps disappointed, when he opened this volume, to find two stories instead of one, neither of them bearing the title which has been given to both united. […] The truth is, that the author was requested to write two stories; and one being illustrative of LOVE and the other of PRIDE, it was considered better to use the one generic title for both than the names of the two stories separately’ (pp. [v]–vi).

Notes. Trans. of Bug-Jargal (Paris, 1826), itself based on a 47-page tale written by Hugo in 1818, and published in 1819 in Le Conservateur littéraire, a periodical founded by Hugo and his brother in that year; in 1825, Hugo rewrote the piece as a novella, before revising and enlarging it into its final novel-form in 1826. Series-t.p. precedes t.p. proper, and reads: ‘The Library of Romance. Edited by Leitch Ritchie. Vol. VI. The Slave-King. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 65, Cornhill. 1833’. ‘Advertisement’, pp. [iii]–iv, notes: ‘We have now arrived at the sixth volume of the Library of Romance, which completes the first half-year; and we think the period a favourable one for introducing an alteration in the arrangement of the publication, which suggested itself to us some months ago, but which then, we feared, might have had an appearance of timidity and mistrust. […] There can be no harm in publishing a Magazine every month; because, in the nature of things, the interest of a magazine is ephemeral […]. The Library of Romance is very differently situated. […] we have determined upon publishing the Library of Romance, not as hitherto, on the first day of every month, but on the first day every second month’ (pp. [iii]–iv). According to Preface, pp. [vii]–viii, the ‘greater part of the notes, and the historical sketch at the end’ are not by Victor Hugo but by ‘a friend who has lately travelled in St. Domingo’ (p. viii). The work consists of: ‘The Slave-King’, pp. [1]–275, and ‘Saint Domingo’, pp. [277]–319. Adv (1 p. unn.) at end of vol. for ‘Volume VII.’ of the series: ‘A Tale of the Caravanserai’. Printer’s mark verso facing t.p. and colophon of Stewart and Co., Old Bailey.

A more thorough insight into French manners and customs may be acquired from one of De Kock’s novels, than from fifty volumes of travels […] As a novelist De Kock may not possess the humour of Fielding or a Smollett, though the reader will meet many scenes not unworthy of those authors; whilst he will be constantly reminded throughout of the quiet humour and happy keeping of character for which Miss Austen stands unrivalled!’ (p. iv).

Notes. Preface, pp. [iii]–v, notes: ‘the Editor of the “Encyclopædia of Romance” feels it his duty to furnish his readers with the objects he has had in view in the present undertaking. He has long entertained the idea of presenting the public with a series of Tales and Romances, both original and translated, at a price which might place them within the reach of the humblest, as well as the highest classes of society. // Encouraged by the flattering reception already accorded to another publication (“The Ladies’ Cabinet”) emanating from the same source, he has spared neither pains nor expense in overcoming the difficulties he has had to encounter in the completion of his design.—The present publication is the result of those efforts.—“The Encyclopædia of Romance” will be continued in Monthly Numbers, containing 144 pages of letter-press. […] translations shall be confined exclusively to such tales as have never appeared before in an English dress, with abridgement of such of the larger and more expensive foreign novels as we think may suit the taste of the English reader. He will thus be put in possession of a collection of the best specimens of works of fiction that every European language can supply, in a form greatly cheaper than the cheapest, and quite as good as any that have been published in a more expensive shape.’ Vol. 1 contains: ‘St. Sylvester’s Night’, pp. [3]–40; ‘The Abbey of Maubuisson’, pp. 40–54; ‘Omar and Susana; or, the Apothecary of Ispahan’, pp. 54–122; ‘The Adventures of a Gentleman of Champaigne, at Paris, in the Year 1833’, pp. 123–137; ‘The Tales of the Twelve Soobahs of Indostan’, pp. 138–253; ‘Generosa’, pp. 253–284. Vol. 2 consists of ‘The Captive. A Tale of Modern Times’, pp. [3]–219; ‘Pelagius’, pp. 220–264; ‘Boyucci’, pp. 265–288. Vol. 3 comprises James Kirke Paulding’s ‘Westward Ho!’. Westward Ho! was also published separately in 1833, in 2 vols. (see 1833: 55[b] for further details). This item is included because of its incorporation of a substantial amount of contemporary fiction not published elsewhere in Britain and Ireland. Printer’s marks and colophons of W. M‘Dowall, Pemberton Row, Gough Square.

Notes. ‘Advertisement’ (2 pp. unn.) notes that ‘The author of “Carwell,” when that tale was first published, was blamed by some for having claimed attention to distresses too mean for sympathy, and characters too degraded for compassion. […] this reproach, combined with the assurance of friends and publishers, that it required more aristocratic affliction to interest the novel reading public, has induced her to attempt a story in the style at present considered the most popular. […] Oonagh Lynch is of a different and more romantic description. The preference shown to either of these stories, will decide the caste of any future fiction attempted by the same writer, should she again appear before the public.’ ‘Aims and Ends’ runs to vol. 2 (p. 203), followed by a verse piece titled ‘Oonagh Lynch’ (p. [205]) preceding the prose tale of the same title, which occupies vols. 2 (from p. [207]) and 3.

List of contents, p. [iii], follows t.p.. ‘An Apology for Fiction’, pp. [v]–xii, begins: ‘To write a book which is intendent, and calculated, solely for the readers of fiction and prefix to it an apology addressed to the non-readers of fiction, appears somewhat paradoxical; yet as a member of a religious society, whose sentiments are openly and professedly at variance with works of this description, I would not willingly oppose the peculiarities of many whom I regard with gratitude, esteem, and admiration, without offering in my own vindication some remarks upon the nature of fiction in general. […] when a writer keeps steadily in view the development of moral truth, when his characters are all of our “mixed essence,” drawn from the scenes of every-day life, animated with our feelings, weak with our frailties, led into our difficulties, surrounded by our temptations, and altogether involved in a succession of the same causes and effects which influence our lives, his productions may be called fiction, but they cannot be false. To me they appear at least as lawful as those of the painter, and for this reason I have ventured to call my stories, Pictures of Private Life’ (pp. [v]–vi). The vol. contains: ‘The Hall and the Cottage’, pp. [1]–180; ‘Ellen Eskdale’, pp. [181]–224; ‘The Curate’s Widow’, pp. [224]–285; ‘Marriage as It May Be’, pp. [287]–348.

Notes. Trans. of Das Goldmacher-Dorf. Eine anmuthige und wahrhafte Geschichte vom aufrichtigen und wohlerfahrenen Schweizerboten (Aarau, 1817). ‘Editor’s Preface’, pp. [5]–10, notes: ‘To many persons the publication of the Goldenthal in an English dress may appear a work of supererogation, as it seems to occupy some of the very same ground so diligently worked by Miss Martineau in various passages of her “Illustrations of Political Economy.” But that delightful authoress could not, consistently with her plan, show, as Zschokke, the patriotic author of Goldenthal, has attempted to do, the importance of the exertion of one virtuous individual in reforming a depraved neighbourhood’ (p. [5]). It also states: ‘The German reader will miss one excellent chapter and several passages from Goldenthal, but they were omitted because totally inapplicable to any district in Great Britain, while the chapter on the forest-lands was retained because there are still some English parishes which either have in reality, or claim from custom, certain forest rights; and though the Goldenthal school-master’s management may be inapplicable to our customs, it cannot be unintelligible’ (p. 7). List of contents, p. [xi]–xii, precedes main text. Printer’s mark and colophon of Gilbert and Rivington, St. John’s Square.
