What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Leather Binding

Rogers was in effect a literary dictator in England. He made his reputation by The Pleasures of Memory when William Cowper's fame was still in the making. He became the friend of Wordsworth, Walter Scott and Byron, and lived long enough to give an opinion as to the fitness of Alfred Tennyson for the post of Poet Laureate. With two armorial bookplates to the front pastedown: one of John Pultney Esq., the other of Geoffrey Lord Cross of Chelsea. Arthur Geoffrey Neale Cross, Baron Cross of Chelsea PC (1904 – 1989) was a British judge. With woodcut illustrations. Geoffrey Cross was invested to the Privy Council in 1969. He was Lord Justice of Appeal from 1969 to 1971. On 12 March 1971, he was appointed Lord of Appeal in Ordinary and was made additionally a life peer with the title Baron Cross of Chelsea, of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
