Catalogue Note

Carlyle, the “British Literary Lion” at this time, was a friend of Ruskin, as was Patmore. Carlyle had been lavish in his praise for The Angel in the House. Also inscribed on the title page by Carlyle: “To the Hon. Maud Stanley | with many regards | T. C.” Miss Stanley was well known for her work in establishing social clubs for working class youths.
