About this Item: Roehampton: printed by John Griffin, 1917. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. White buckram back, leather spine-label ("REMINIS-/CENCES/K"), blue cloth boards. Spine slightly darkened, covers mildly marked, endpapers somewhat embrowned, some foxing of early and late pages. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "From K. 16 Nov 1917". With the (T.E. Harrison) bookplate of Walter Henry James, Lord Netherbourne. Mounted on the rear pastedown a news-cutting from The Times, 11 September 1918, a letter from Paget Toynbee supplying, "with Lord Kilbracken's permission", a Latin "rendering by him of Sannazaro's 'flying' sonnet, which will be welcome to scholars, especially those in the Flying Corps". On the endpaper opposite, Northbourne writes: "J. Conington, Professor of Latin [at Oxford, 1854-69] used to say Godley writes Latin verses like an angel.! Sep. 27: 1918. N". Arthur Godley, a first cousin of the Oxford classical scholar and writer of light verse A.D. Godley ("What is it that roareth thus? / Can it be a Motor Bus?"), was private secretary to W.E. Gladstone in two administrations, and then Under-Secretary of State for India for 10 successive administrations, 1883-1909; he was created Baron Kilbracken in 1909. At 69, he hastens to write his reminiscences while he still can (an "intimate" friend had died at the same age having only just completed his); written at speed and for private circulation, they have impressive freshness and directness. In the event he lived to the age of 85, publishing, with Macmillan in 1931, a Reminiscences revised for public consumption. "That my life has been an uninteresting one I do not pretend to think; unfortunately one finds, when it comes to writing about it, that the most interesting parts of it have to be left out." He was under Jowett at Balliol ("I shall never forget the misery of my first walk with him"), but was taken first under the wing of John Conington, a fellow Old Rugbeian (whose "angel" testimony he himself quotes), a scholar who "had a verbal memory which certainly equalled, if it did not surpass, that of Macaulay"; Andrew Lang had a premonition of the professor's early death. Of Lord Randolph Churchill he writes, "he was one of the last individuals for whom I should have prophesied a political career". But the passages of most enduring interest relate to Godley's employment by W.E. Gladstone, giving detailed insights into the workings of his private office, how his correspondence was conducted, and the ordering of Downing Street, even down to the price of coal (34s a ton the first winter, 42s the next). "With all his magnificent gifts, Mr. Gladstone was not a good party leader, mainly because he was so utterly unlike the colleagues with whom he had to work, and the supporters in Parliament on whom he had to rely. He was a creature of a different species . . ." He didn't get on with Queen Victoria, who, whatever her qualities, with him was "the reverse of amiable", but "really liked" the future King Edward VII, with whom he used to smoke (indeed "with the air of a habitual smoker, leaning back in his chair and sometimes exhaling the smoke of his cigarette through his nostrils: an amusing sight to those who knew him well"). Gladstone's heart, says Kilbracken, "was never really in his profession. He saw the ugly side of it as plainly as any man could see it; he had long since made up his mind to face it, but it never ceased to disgust him." Lord Kilbracken's brother-in-law and sometime schoolfellow Walter James served as Liberal MP for Gateshead until, in 1893, he succeeded as second Lord Northbourne. His father, the first Lord Northbourne, a close friend of Gladstone, gave the statesman as a golden wedding present in 1889 a bookplate designed by T.E. Harrison; his son's was commissioned the previous year. Inscribed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # T100382

About this Item: Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1959. Hardcover. First Edition, First Printing so stated. 240 pp. 8to. Half (orange) cloth over boards, black and orange lettering to spine and front cover. Presentation copy from the author to the photographer, John Bryson, who figures heavily in the book itself. Dampstain to crown and top edge of boards with attendant swelling, Dust Jacket shows bravely for the main part, with the cover photo of John Godley 3rd Baron Killbracken of Killegar perfectly unaffected. Spine and an inch into either panel rubbed, spine ends show some loss and lettering at the tail rubbed. Price intact and by comparison the flaps are just about as new. Inscription (which is pristine) on ffep reads: For John Bryson who took the picture * in memory of those happy Moscow days* John K Killegar 1959. The text block is pretty much pristine, except for three very large dog-ears where Bryson marked the three sections of the book that mention him. Impossible to find signed, much less as presentation copy with such a fantastic association. Seller Inventory # 001791
