The item consists of a 25.5 x 20.5 cm bifolium, with the text of Landor's letter on the recto of the first leaf, from which a central rectangle (roughly 10 x 20.5 cm) carrying the amended copy has been cut away for transmission to the printer. Otherwise the item is in fair condition, on ligthly-aged paper. The verso of the second leaf is addressed to 'Mr. Taylor | 13 Waterloo Place | London', and carries three postmarks. The letter reads: 'Sir, | There is a passage in page 47 which Mr Hare [Julius Hare, who had] inserted from a letter I wrote hastily to his brother [Augustus Hare]. It appears that he thought a great deal more highly of it than I do, and that others have expressed a too favorable opinion of its merit. Whatever force it may have, I am by no means satisfied with it, nor am I by any persuasion led to believe that Southey, to whom the words are attributed would subscribe to them. In deference to Mr Hare I was silent on it, but I really am so unhappy that a thing inconsiderably written in a letter should find a place in the Conversations, that altho there is hardly any hope of my corrections coming in time, I much entreat and implore you to reprint the page, even if the copies are printed and bound. Thus [here the letter is cut away] | I am Sir | Yours very truly | [signed] W S Landor'. According to his entry in the Oxford DNB, Julius Hare 'acted as editor and agent for Walter Savage Landor, and demonstrated his capacity for devoted friendship by supervising publication of Landor's Imaginary Conversations (1824-9)'. John Forster's biography of Landor provides much valuable information regarding the publication of the 'Imaginary Conversations'. N° de ref. de la librería 12635
