Thomas Maitland, Lord Dundrennan - Works

Works

Dundrennan was devoted to antiquarian literature, and possessed a large library — "a monument", according to Cockburn, "honourable to his taste and judgment". The collection was dispersed by sale on 10 November 1851 and eight following days. Lord Jeffrey was an intimate friend, and in 1843 Dundrennan selected and arranged the volume of Jeffrey's contributions to the Edinburgh Review, which was published in November of that year.

Dundrennan also issued in limited editions reprints of works by Geoffrey Mynshull, John Bellenden, Marlowe, Bishop Hall, and Thomas Carew, and prepared for publication the Works of Robert Herrick, with a biographical notice, (1823, 2 vols.), and for the Maitland Club, the Poems of William Drummond of Hawthornden (1832) the Works of Sir Thomas Urquhart (1834), and the Works of George Dalgarno of Aberdeen (1834).

Famous quotes containing the word works:

    The works of women are symbolical.
    We sew, sew, prick our fingers, dull our sight,
    Producing what? A pair of slippers, sir,
    To put on when you’re weary or a stool
    To stumble over and vex you ... “curse that stool!”
    Or else at best, a cushion, where you lean
    And sleep, and dream of something we are not,
    But would be for your sake. Alas, alas!
    This hurts most, this ... that, after all, we are paid
    The worth of our work, perhaps.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

    When life has been well spent, age is a loss of what it can well spare,—muscular strength, organic instincts, gross bulk, and works that belong to these. But the central wisdom, which was old in infancy, is young in fourscore years, and dropping off obstructions, leaves in happy subjects the mind purified and wise.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
