About this Item

12mo (7 x 4 3/4"). XXXII, 480pp (Vol. 1); XI, [1], 464pp (Vol. 2); XII, 464pp (Vol. 3); VIII, 424pp (Vol. 4). Contemporary gilt- and blind-stamped blue morocco, with gold lettering to spines. Raised bands. Large seal of the Law Society of the United Kingdom in gold to each front cover. All edges gilt. Dentelles. Marbled endpapers. Originally published in 1837, The "Introduction to the Literature of Europe" continues a topic broached in the "View of the Middle Ages." In the first chapter Hallam sketches the state of literature in Europe down to the end of the 14th century: the extinction of ancient learning which followed the fall of the Roman empire and the rise of Christianity; the preservation of the Latin language in the services of the church; and the revival of letters after the 7th century. For the first century and a half of his period the author is mainly occupied with a review of classical learning, taking short decennial periods and noticing works which they produced. For the period 1520-1550 there are separate chapters on ancient literature, theology, science, speculative philosophy and jurisprudence, the literature of taste and other miscellaneous literature; and the subdivisions of subjects is carried further in later periods. Thus poetry, the drama and polite literature form the subjects of separate chapters.Henry Hallam was the father of the celebrated poet Arthur Henry Hallam, who died in 1833 at the early age of 22.Prize certificate pasted at verso of first volume's front cover: "Easter Term 1867.
