Brewer, pp.167-70. Ninety-one numbers in all were published, and fifteen supplements. Brewer notes only nine, and complete copies are said to be very rare. In the present copy the spine bears the legend ‘2 Vols in one’, but as will be clear from the collation given above only the first volume and the first 280pp. of the second volume, together with the Monthly Supplement to the First Part, and the Monthly Supplements of the second volume to the end of 1835 are here present. This would appear to be the complete collected edition as put up by the publisher. According to CBEL the Journal ceased publication on 26th December 1835. The last Number present here is 73, dated August 22, 1835, but the last Supplement bears the date ‘Dec.31, 1835’. From No.62 (dated June 6, 1835) onwards, there is added the sub-title ‘And The printing machine’. In this copy, p.96 of Vol.II. is numbered 69. Carlyle and Landor were among the contributors.

From the library of Eric Quayle, with his brief pencilled notes on the front end-papers of volume one. Originally published in forty numbers between November 6th 1786 and July 30th 1787, the chief contributors being George Canning, John Smith, Robert Smith, and John Hookham Frere. All the contributions were anonymous. The back of the front end-paper in volume one bears a neat ink note in a contemporary hand, reading “The Westminster scholars having published the Trifler as a rival work to the Microcosm, and prefixed to it a Frontispiece in which the respective publications were shown in a pair of scales, the Trifler weighing down the Microcosm, Mr. C[anning]. (who was chiefly concerned in writing the latter) wrote the following Epigram: ‘What mean you by this print so rare, / Ye wits, of Eton jealous, / But that your rivals soar in air, / And you are heavy fellows?’

The final volume of the Miscellanies, consisting of nine separately printed items bound up together. Pp.10+18+18+26+xiv+114+viii+204+[120]+[26]+[24]+[8]. Printed over eight years on large, fine, hand-made paper, watermarked ‘Chiswick Press’, and here first issued as a volume. Much of the present volume is the work of Richard Monckton Milnes, Lord Houghton, including his transcription of ‘Bishop Cranmer’s Recantacyons’ (Latin text), but it includes also an unpublished portion of the Greville Memoirs, the first printing of some Sydney Smith letters, and, most importantly, the first printing of S.T. Coleridge’s extensive correspondence with the Rev. J.P. Estlin (v. Wise, 101), these last occupying some 117pp. Wise speaks of fifty copies only of the Coleridge letters as having been issued, but it is not clear whether he intends to convey that this was the total printing, or merely that it was the number of copies issued to members separately in wrappers before the bound volume had been prepared. According to the List of Members prefacing the latter, the Society had no more than thirty-five surviving members by the time it was sent out. It would appear, therefore, that the total edition is likely in either case to have been extremely small.

The second of two annual volumes under this main title, after which it was renamed ‘The Temple of the Muses’ and appeared semi-annually. According to the Editors’ Preface, “It was the intention of the projectors of the Poetical Magazine... to unite in one respectable publication a variety of the Fugitive Poems, the production of their friends and occasional correspondents; mingling, at the same time with these such extracts from faviurite authors, as seemed to possess charms for universal attention.” Most of the contributors are identified only by initials: J.L.S., B.F., B.A., R.T., J.S., W.W., ASIB, E., E.W., H., O., W.H., M., T., D.B., etc., or by pseudonyms and hints of names: Constantia, Philopatros, Anna, J — a B — wd — n (Liverpool), E --- e, etc., but among those more fully identified are W.M. Craig, Holloway, Carey, Balfour, J. Rannie, M.G. Lewis (‘The Spanish Exile’ and ‘Durandarte and Belerma’), [Ann Radcliffe] (‘The Glow Worm’ from ‘The Mysteries of Udolpho’), Mrs. Robinson (‘The Complaint’ from ‘Vancenza’), Collins (‘Ode on the Superstitions of the Highlands of Scotland’, with ‘Supplemental Stanzas’ by William Erskine, Esq., Advocate), Mr. G. Goodwin, Jo. Raynholt, Sir William Jones, William Preston, John Ogilvie, Rev. Mr. Joseph Warton, William Boscawen, Emanuel Collins, D. Hurn, John Colligins, and R. Carlile. There is no list of plates, but they are marked to face pp.3, 61, 123, and 296, and are here so bound in; there is also an unmarked plate to p.188. An uncommon volume, collected from the numbers, with contents very characteristic of the social verse of its time.

The issue with ‘Edited by Geo: Newnes’ on spine — and in this case with a.e.g., also. Contributors include A. Conan Doyle (‘Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ XIII.), Grant Allen (‘The Great Ruby Robbery’), Dumas, W. Clark Russell, ‘Dick Donovan’ (‘Romances from a Detective’s Case-book’), Verne, Richard Marsh, Arthur Morrison, etc., interviews with Sala, Sir Frederick Leighton, Irving, Ellen Terry, etc. Illustrations include several pages of vignettes by Max Beerbohm (variously described as H.M. Beerbohm or H. Maxwell Beerbohm), and there are splendid illustrated articles on the ‘Evolution of the [bi]Cycle’, ‘Queen Victoria’s Dolls’, ‘A Day with Dr. Conan Doyle’, etc. Possibly a publisher’s copy and once Graingerised by the insertion of seven relevant letters, including one from Harry Furniss to George Newnes, all alas no longer present, but their insertion indexed in pencil on the back of the front end-paper. The holes in the end-paper result from the removal of the letter from Harry Furniss; removal of the rest has left no damage, and they were possibly all only loosely laid in.

The issue with ‘Edited by Geo: Newnes’ on spine — and in this case with a.e.g. also. Contributors include Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (five episodes of ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’), Charles J. Mansford, E.W. Hornung, Richard Marsh (‘Capturing a Convict’), Sarah Bernhardt (‘A Christmas Story’), M.P. Shiel (‘Garry Harkaway’s Substitute’), W.L. Alden (six chapters of ‘Among the Freaks’), C.J. Cutcliffe Hyne (‘Spiking the Guns’), an unpublished letter of Charles Kean, ‘Illustrated Interviews’ with Edmund Yates, Luke Fildes, etc., an illustrated article ‘Towards the North Pole’ by Dr. Fridtjof Nansen, [L.T. Meade and Clifford Halifax] (‘Stories from the Diary of a Doctor’), A.G. Morrison (‘Zig-zags at the Zoo’, XIII. — XVIII.), etc. Possibly a publisher’s copy and once Graingerised by the insertion of half-a-dozen relevant letters, all but one, alas, no longer present, but their insertion indexed in pencil on the back of the front end-paper. The one that remains, however, tipped onto the front end-paper, is the important one: an a.l.s. dated from 7 Medina Mansions, Gt. Titchfield St. W., and dated 1st Oct. 1903, about 120 words, to a Mr. Keary (identified as ‘P.K.’ on the index), who appears to have been an editor, apologising for having failed to send “the 20,000 words of the story of which we spoke before your trip to Ireland, but . . . I got a definite order for something which I could not afford to let slip . . . “. Removal of the rest of the inserts has left no damage, and they were possibly all only loosely laid in.

All issued. ‘Transformation’ was intended to appear twice yearly, a schedule it never made. The second volume is uncommon; the first volume definitely scarce. Complete sets very hard to find. ‘Transformation Four’ is seen also in a glazed fine net grain cloth, the present binding being the earlier. This set belonged to Dr. August Closs, variations of whose small neat pencil signature appears in three of the volumes, together with a scattering of notes. Closs was a would-be contributor to the series: loosely laid into the first volume are two letters to him (c.300 words) from Schimanski, discussing the possibilities of contribution. Schimanski suggests, among other things that Closs should contact Fred Marnau, with a view to offering him something for his ‘New Road’ anthologies. Closs did, and duly appears in ‘New Road 4’. a number of more or less relevant press cuttings, etc. are loosely laid in, including a Lindsay Drummond catalogue for 1945, whilst a review of the first volume is loosely tipped inside the front cover. Contributors to the first volume include Herbert Read, Reginald Sorensen, Alexander Blok, J.F. Hendry, S.I. Hsiung, G.S. Fraser, Anne Ridler, Schimanski, Francis Scarfe, Mulk Raj Anand, W.J. Turner, Reginald Moore, William Sansom, Elizabeth Berridge, Boris Pasternak, etc.; to the second, Richard Church, A.S. Neill, Ian Serraillier, alan Ross, Lewis Mumford, Schimanski, Herbert Read, Graham Thomas, Steven Spender, Ivan Bunin, Henry Treece, Michael Hamburger, Henry Miller, etc.; to the third, Edith Sitwell (facsimile of a ms. poem), Gertrude Stein, Reginald Sorensen, Herbert Read, Schimanski, D.S. Savage, Henry Treece, Henry Moore, Paul Nash, etc.; and to the fourth, Henry Miller, Jean Paulhan, Nicolas Berdyaev, Antoine de Saint Exupery, Henry Treece, Hugo Manning, Kenneth Patchen, Anais Nin, William Saroyan, Jean Garrigue, Margiad Evans, Olaf Stapledon, etc., etc.
