Pater, Walter  
Uncollected Essays
 Picture
Publisher: Thomas B. Mosher Portland, ME, 1090.
Uncollected Essays. By Walter Pater. Portland, ME: Thomas B. Mosher, 1903. Hardcover. LIMITED EDITION: "450 copies of this book have been printed on Van Gelder hand-made paper and the type distributed." Walter Horatio Pater (1839 – 1894) was an English essayist, critic of art and literature, and writer of fiction. "The twelve uncollected articles now brought together for the first time, simply belong the realm of higher literary journalism; and, like the Essays from The Guardian, ‘although their positive value may be slight, ’ are of precisely similar interest and worth. Decidedly not to be ranked with Pater’s published works, what we here offer should be viewed as one might view a collection of letters, if they existed, ‘to the inner circle of his friends.’ As such these criticisms have their place, and cannot fail of welcome from those who would share the few last ‘crumbs from the table of his delicate and never copious feast.’…." 161 pages. Book is in FAIR condition; damage to bottom of spine--2" of covering of spine missing from bottom; top edges of spine repaired with tape. Interior binding is still good; text pages are clean and unmarked. No dust jacket. . No Jacket. Hard Cover. Book condition: Fair
