Descripción

Duodecimo, [iv], 100 pages. Contemporary half calf and stippled cloth (with the stamp of Ramage, London), all edges gilt; leather a little rubbed at the extremities (more heavily so at the corners, which are worn through to the boards); a very good copy (internally fine). This copy is inscribed in ink on the verso of the title page 'To / George Augustus Sala / From the author. / With sincere regards. / P.J.H. / 2.5.'85'. George Augustus Sala (1828-1895), the 'Prince of Journalists', spent nine months in Australia in 1885; his lasting legacy from that trip was coining the phrase 'Marvellous Melbourne' some six weeks before he received this token from Holdsworth. He amassed an enormous collection of books, but also a crushing amount of debt, and in 1895 he was forced to sell his library of 13000 volumes. This no doubt hastened his death on 8 December that year . . . This book later ended up in the collection of Thomas Thornton Reed, sometime Anglican Archbishop of Adelaide; it carries his signature and his Dean of Adelaide stamp.
