Excerpt from The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science, and Art, 1884, Vol. 58 When the principle is once established that the employment of certain corporate funds is to be regulated exclusively by considerations of utility, the defence of ceremonies and banquets becomes untenable. Schools and hospitals are Obviously more useful than City dinners yet the inference that there ought to be no more cakes and'ale is perhaps not exhaustively true. The security of more important institu tions may rest on firmer grounds but it also depends largely on the instinct or habit of letting things alone. The theory that Parliament is the sole judge Of the expediency of main taining any kind Of right is essentially modern. The pre cedent of the appropriation to novel purposes Of the estates of the monasteries was founded on the assumption that the property had been dedicated to superstitious uses. The Commissioners probably took an unnecessary pre caution when they recommended that a short Act Should be immediately passed to restrain the Companies from alienation of their property. There could be no question of any such proceeding on the part of such Companies as the Mercers, the Goldsmiths, and the Fishmongers; and pro bably even the smallest Guilds would decline to follow the example of the members of Serjeants' Inn. A division made once for all of the property which a corporate body has accumulated during hundreds of years is not even an approximate fulfilment of a legal or moral trust. In some-cases the leading members of the Companies will perhaps be willing to concur with any Commission which may be appointed in promoting judicious schemes for the future application of the funds. It may be hoped that there will be no capricious attempt to deprive the governing bodies of the right and duty Of administering funds which they avowedly hold as trustees. The most important function which the Companies have discharged has been to create and to cultivate a local patriotism which is probably not to be found in equal force in any other English com munity. The liverymen and other members of the Com panics have been proud of their traditional dignity and Of their connexion with the great -city Corporation. There is no reason for meddling unnecessarily with names and titles, even when they are no longer associated with Substantial advantages. It is useless to struggle against fate, especially when it assumes the form Of a Parliamentary majority backed by general Opinion. It can only be said that the abolition of the Companies will not be an unmixed good. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Literature and the Rise of the Interview

Today interviews proliferate everywhere: in newspapers, on television, and in anthologies; as a method they are a major tool of medicine, the law, the social sciences, oral history projects, and journalism; and in the book trade interviews with authors are a major promotional device. We live in an 'interview society'. How did this happen? What is it about the interview form that we find so appealing and horrifying? Are we all just gossips or is there something more to it? What are the implications of our reliance on this bizarre dynamic for publicity, subjectivity, and democracy? Literature and the Rise of the Interview addresses these questions from the perspective of literary culture. The book traces the ways in which the interview form has been conceived and deployed by writers, and interviewing has been understood as a literary-critical practice. It excavates what we might call a 'poetics' of the interview form and practice. In so doing it covers 150 years and four continents. It includes a diverse rostrum of well-known writers, such as Henry James, T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Djuna Barnes, William Burroughs, Philip Roth, J. M. Coetzee and Toni Morrison, while reintroducing some individuals that history has forgotten, such as Betty Ross, 'Queen of Interviewers', and Julian Hawthorne, Nathaniel's profligate son. Together these stories expose the interview's position in the literary imagination and consider what this might tell us about conceptions of literature, authorship, and reading communities in modernity.

Misadventures in Archaeology

In the late nineteenth century, Charles Conrad Abbott, a medical doctor and self-taught archaeologist, gained notoriety for his theories on early humans. He believed in an American Paleolithic, represented by an early Ice Age occupation of the New World that paralleled that of Europe, a popular scientific topic at the time. He attempted to prove that the Trenton gravels—glacial outwash deposits near the Delaware River—contained evidence of an early, primitive population that pre-dated Native Americans. His theories were ultimately overturned in acrimonious public debate with government scientists, most notably William Henry Holmes of the Smithsonian Institution. His experience—and the rise and fall of his scientific reputation—paralleled a major shift in the field toward an increasing professionalization of archaeology (and science as a whole). This is the first biography of Charles Conrad Abbott to address his archaeological research beyond the Paleolithic debate, including his early attempts at historical archaeology on Burlington Island in the Delaware River, and prehistoric Middle Woodland collections made throughout his lifetime at Three Beeches in New Jersey, now the Abbott Farm National Historic Landmark. It also delves into his modestly successful career as a nature writer. As an archaeologist, he held a position with the Peabody Museum at Harvard University and was the first curator of the American Section at the Penn Museum. He also attempted to create a museum of American archaeology at Princeton University. Through various sources including archival letters and diaries, this book provides the most complete picture of the quirky and curmudgeonly, C. C. Abbott.

Frances Hodgson Burnett is remembered today as the author of the children's classic "The Secret Garden," but in her lifetime she had a long and successful career as a novelist, dramatist and writer of children's stories. Born in 1849 in Manchester, England, Burnett settled in Tennessee with her mother and siblings at sixteen after her father's death. She began writing stories to supplement her family's income. With the acceptance of the story "Surly Tim's Trouble" by "Scribner's Magazine" in New York and the subsequent publication of her first novel "That Lass O'Lowries" in 1877, the critics hailed Burnett as a new voice in American fiction comparing her favorably to Charles Dickens. Her early novels were written in the Victorian realistic tradition, but with her ambitious Washington novel "Through One Administration" she began a long period of genre experimentation, writing two allegorical historical novels, two transatlantic Anglo-American novels and two post-World War I novels that wrestled with the broad problem of meaning in Western culture in the wake of the war. "The Novels of Frances Hodgson Burnett" reads her novels in the context of the changing literary field in England and the United States in the years between the death of George Eliot in 1880 through to the Great War. Read as a body of literary fiction in relation to Elizabeth Gaskell, Henry James and T. S. Eliot among others, and read in the context of literary realism, historical fiction, the sensation novel and so on, Burnett's novels constitute an important thread that chronicles the changing contexts and forms of English and American fiction from the end of the Victorian period to the Jazz Age of the 1920s.

In Race, Nation, History, Oded Y. Steinberg examines the way a series of nineteenth-century scholars in England and Germany first constructed and then questioned the periodization of history into ancient, medieval, and modern eras, shaping the way we continue to think about the past and present of Western civilization at a fundamental level. Steinberg explores this topic by tracing the deep connections between the idea of epochal periodization and concepts of race and nation that were prevalent at the time—especially the role that Germanic or Teutonic tribes were assumed to play in the unfolding of Western history. Steinberg shows how English scholars such as Thomas Arnold, Williams Stubbs, and John Richard Green; and German scholars such as Christian Karl Josias von Bunsen, Max Müller, and Reinhold Pauli built on the notion of a shared Teutonic kinship to establish a correlation between the division of time and the ascent or descent of races or nations. For example, although they viewed the Germanic tribes' conquest of the Roman Empire in A.D. 476 as a formative event that symbolized the transformation from antiquity to the Middle Ages, they did so by highlighting the injection of a new and dominant ethnoracial character into the decaying empire. But they also rejected the idea that the fifth century A.D. was the most decisive era in historical periodization, advocating instead for a historical continuity that emphasized the significance of the Germanic tribes' influence on the making of the nations of modern Europe. Concluding with character studies of E. A. Freeman, James Bryce, and J. B. Bury, Steinberg demonstrates the ways in which the innovative schemes devised by this community of Victorian historians for the division of historical time relied on the cornerstone of race.
