A book of essays 

A book of essays



These essays have been printed in Blackwood's Magazine, The Fortnightly Review, Cornhill, The National Review, The Monthly Review, and (a journal I hope I did not help to kill) The Londoner, I am aware that some critics object to one's making a volume of such things. But it is surely severe on a poor writer that he should be denied a judgment, such as it may be, on his work as a whole. In any case, I have good precedents.

Some of the essays:

London in general
The city.
The strand 
St. James's and Mayfair
Piccadilly
Bayswater and st. Johns wood
Cockney humour
Ii. Books and men
Byron to 1816
Byron, 1816-1824
After heading Horace Walpole
Charles fox and Charles the second
George Selwyn's letters
Sarah Lennox.
Anthony Trollope.
The great duchess

He was associated with William Ernest Henley and the 'counter-Decadents' on the staff of the National Observer. His works were characterized by "whimsy, detachment, sympathy, tenderness, satire, humour, and occasionally cynicism".
