"Dear Katherine / If you and Miss Mallet / & Wm have nothing better to do, / pray come and drink tea with me / next Sunday, the earlier the better / Yours very truly / Saml Rogers / St James's Place / Thursday Evg."Charles McLEISH Sr. began his bookbinding career as an apprentice to Andrew Grier in Edinburgh. He then moved to London and worked for Riviére until 1893 when he joined Cobden-Sanderson at the Doves Bindery as a finisher, working there until the bindery closed in 1909.In 1909 he established his own bindery with his son, Charles Jr., who had apprenticed with Roger de Coverly. "Not surprisingly, their early bindings are highly influenced by Cobden-Sanderson" (Maggs Bros., Bookbinding in the British Isles II, p. 240).Samuel Rogers (1763-1855) was an English poet, whom during his lifetime was one of the most celebrated poets of the nineteenth century, although his fame has long since been eclipsed by his Romantic colleagues and friends, Wordsworth, Coleridge and Byron. His recollections of these and other friends such as Charles James Fox are key sources for information about London artistic and literary life, with which he was intimate, and which he used his wealth to support. He made his money as a banker and was also a discriminating art collector. In 1814 Rogers made a tour on the Continent with his sister Sarah. He traveled through Switzerland to Italy, keeping a full diary of events and impressions, and had made his way to Naples when the news of Napoleon's escape from Elba obliged him to hurry home. Seven years later he returned to Italy, paying a visit to Byron and Shelley at Pisa. Out of the earlier of these tours arose his last and longest work, Italy. The first part was published anonymously in 1822; the second, with his name attached, in 1828. It was at first a failure, but Rogers was determined to make it a success. He enlarged and revised the poem, and commissioned illustrations from J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Stothard and Samuel Prout. These were engraved on steel in the sumptuous edition of 1830. The book then proved a great success, and Rogers followed it up with an equally sumptuous edition of his Poems (1834). In 1850, on Wordsworth's death, Rogers was asked to succeed him as poet laureate, but declined the honor on account of his age. For the last five years of his life he was confined to his chair in consequence of a fall in the street. He died in London at 92, a remarkable age for the time, and is buried in the family tomb in the churchyard of St. Mary's Church, Hornsey High Street, Haringey. Bookseller Inventory #
