9781440091025: The Autobiographies of Edward Gibbon: Printed Verbatim from Hitherto Unpublished With an Introduction By Earl of Sheffield (Classic Reprint)
Présentation de l'éditeur :

The centenary of the death of Edward Gibbon (died January, 1794, aged fifty-six) was recorded by a public commemoration held in London in November, 1894, at the instance of the Royal Historical Society. The distinguished committee of English and foreign students, who were associated on that occasion, invited me to become their President, as representing the family with which Gibbon had been so intimately connected, and which still retained the portraits, manuscripts, letters, and relics of the historian. The exhibition of these in the British Museum, and the commemoration held on November 15, reawakened interest in the work and remains of one of the greatest names in English literature; and a general desire was expressed that the manuscripts should be again collated, and that what was yet unpublished might be given to the world. As is well known, it was my grandfather, the first Earl, who made the historian almost his adopted brother, gave him a home both in town and in country, was his devisee and literary executor, and edited and published the famous A utobiography, the letters, and remains.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. 221 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Memoirs of Edward Gibbon, Esq.: With an Essay If, as Johnson said, there had been only three books written by man that were wished longer by their readers, the eighteenth century was not to draw to its close without seeing a fourth added. With Don Quixote, The Pilgrim s Progress and Robinson Crusoe, the Autobiography of Edward Gibbon was henceforth to rank as a work whose conclusion is perceived with an eye of sorrow, such as the traveller casts upon departing day. It is indeed so short that it can be read by the light of a single pair of candles; it is so interesting in its subject, and so alluring in its turns of thought and its style, that in a second and a third reading it gives scarcely less pleasure than in the first. Among the books in which men have told the story of their own lives it stands in the front rank. It is a striking fact that one of the first of autobiographies and the first of biographies were written in the same years. Boswell was still working at his Life of Johnson when Gibbon began those memoirs from which his autobiography, in the form in which it was given to the world, was so skilfully pieced together. But a short time had gone by since Johnson had said that he did not think that the life of any literary man in England had been well written. That reproach against our writers he himself did much to lessen by his Lives of Cowley and of Milton, of Dryden and of Pope. It was finally removed by two members of that famous club which he had helped to found. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
