About this Item: Rupert Hart-Davis, London, 1954. Hardcover, octavo, 340pp., b&w illustrations. Lightly toned and spotted text block edges. Illustration of William Beckford fixed to half-title page. Blue card dustwrapper spotted, with minor edge wear. Very good. Wrapper now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. "Beckford's journals, which need to be sampled slowly and lingered over rather than read rapidly, provide an extraordinarily vivid impression of court life in Portugal and Spain in the eighteenth century: the terribly circumscribed quality of the life; the suffocating boredom. It is all here in Beckford. 'Dignity without power is the heaviest of burdens,' he writes in one place. 'A sovereign may always employ himself; he has the choice of good or evil; but princes like these of Palliava, without credit or influence, who have nothing to feed on but imaginary greatness, must yawn their souls out, and become in process of time as formal and inanimate as the evergreen pyramids of stunted myrtle in their gardens.' In another place he describes a visit to the palace at Palhavanow the Spanish Embassy where, 'not an insect stirred, not a whisper was audible in the principal apartments. . . no decoration but heavy drapery; even the tables are concealed by cut velvet flounces, in the style of those with which our dowagers used formerly to array their toilets. . . . This taste for putting commodes and tables into petticoats is pretty general, at least in royal apartments.' Mr. Boyd Alexander says that in his 1834 edition of the Journal, Beckford felt it necessary to suppress references to his invidious position abroad and to his contests with Robert Walpole, 'and perhaps also to conceal his sympathy for Roman Catholicism.' I do not know about the latter; of how far his sympathy for the Faith went. There are naturally many references to church services, visits to monasteries and conversations with clergy, but my suspicion is that his understanding of Catholicism apart from the externals and the trappings did not go very deep. Perhaps he needed the ministrations of an abbe like the one in The Razor's Edge, who persuades Elliott Templeton that the Church is a sort of select club that a well-bred man owed it to himself to belong to. But how successful this approach might have proved within a few years of the Gordon Riots is quite another story." - Aubrey Noakes. Seller Inventory # 43489

About this Item: Unpublished, Oxfordshire, 1976. No Binding. Condition: Near Fine. A collection of 5 Typed letters presenting a tetchy correspondence from the William Beckford scholar Boyd Alexander which discuss in increasingly acrimonious terms his research work on the eighteenth century novelist and patron of the arts, William Beckford. Alexander begins in February 1976 with an affable response to a doctoral student who has enquired about his work but quickly displays his irritation about the 'greatest difficult in getting E.W.S. published' despite being 'the leading authority on B[eckford]'. The correspondence swiftly degenerates into arguments about Beckford scholarship and sniping about his correspondent's expectations about the possibility of unpublished manuscript material: 'What makes you think I have unpublished material? I would like to know who told you this.' Taken together an entertaining picture of the frustrations engendered by scholarship. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about these letters. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 002187
