JOHN GIBSON LOCKHART
The 19th-century literary figure makes plans for an upcoming dinner with a Miss Rogers in black ink
Autograph letter unsigned. 1 page, 3½x5¾. In full: "Dear Miss Rogers, I believe theenclsoed is yours - & unless I hear of the contrary, I shall have the honour to dine with you on Tuesday. Yours truly". John Gibson Lockhart (1794-1854) was a Scottish writer and author, best known for his definitive biography of Sir Walter Scott titled Life of Sir Walter Scott (1837-1838), which is considered the second most admirable in the English language (after Boswell's Life of Johnson). A scholar of classics, Lockhart first came into notice while writing for the Scottish Tory publication Blackwood's Magazine, famed for its aggressive articles and brilliant criticism of the Scottish Whig stronghold and the Romantic intellectual movement. In 1818, Lockhart met Sir Walter Scott, and went on to marry his eldest daughter Sofia two years later. He worked as editor of the Quarterly Review from 1825 until 1853, as well as wrote novels such as Valerius (1821), Reginald Dalton (1823) and Matthew Wald (1824) and served as editor for the famed Murray's Family Library (1829). Normal mailing folds. Creased throughout. Toned. Corners rounded. Edges frayed. Torn and frayed on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
