Catalogue Note

Hazlitt's Liber Amoris  relates in a series of letters the author's strange and highly inappropriate relationship with his landlord’s daughter, Sarah Walker. P.G. Patmore, Patmore’s father, was an intimate friend of Hazlitt and his confidant in Liber Amoris.
Henry Patmore was the youngest son from Patmore’s first marriage. He died at age 23, having already demonstrated his talent at writing poetry. Patmore arranged for the poems to be privately printed with the help of Edmund Gosse, who wrote a memorial poem for the collection.
