The books at my Fathers House (FH), the books I’ve read, and Storage (S), are more guesswork, since I was not completely sure of them, so I basically just went mostly with the books I strongly remember. I included books I read, since it is important to me in my decisions of other books to buy or read. Also I didn’t included children’s books, because I felt they did not fit well and because my family owns a ton of them. Norlin Library: Catalogue. [In a later hand:] of the library of female authors of the Rev. J. Fr. Stainforth. Call Number WPRP 290 found in special collections u/specialcollections/collection s/wprp/items/290.htm *Quote is from poem “Augurus of Innocence”, by William Blake; located in his notebook known as “the Pickering Manuscript”, which was published in Information on Stainforth came from : 10The Association of British Philatelic Societies Ltd. “Who was who in the philately”. abps.org.uk.(2010) abps.com.uk. Web. 6 Feb )CU University Libraries. “Women Poets of the Romantic Period”. Ubclibraries.colorado.edu. Web. 23 Mar The handwriting is another attraction to the piece: it is pleasing to see the period cursive script, and the variation of the ink, which is lighter or darker on certain pages. The book is a cultural artifact itself, with its dilapidated brown cover, its obvious over-use by the owner, its page ends that have been crimpled by heat damage and the wear on the spine. The collection allows the reader a glimpse of the world of 1863, in a grain of sand. Some examples of this are listings of this author, {Rosina} Eds.2, 3,5,6,7, or {Puny |J.D|} Guide to Waburn Abbey Toward the end of the book, Stainforth includes a personal wish list, which is an interesting addition. Stainforth categorizes each selection by region and genre and alphabetizes it on the right-hand page. It is particularly exciting to see the number of books he ultimately obtained from his wish list, a fact which he documented by crossing them off. There wasn’t any background information on the company in any of the offered databases in Chinnock libraries or on the search engines. Stainforth’s catalogue extensively covers female authors, poets, and playwrights during the Romantic period from several different regions, and includes meticulous information about each text. The book is like a puzzle box that invites the reader to divine its secrets. There are 373 leaves, 254 are of the catalogue and 92 are of the wants list. Stainforth managed to amass more than 6000 works of female written pieces (2). The text includes many literary artifacts of the time, including the publishing company nameplate, “H.GOSBELL, Stationer, and Account Book Manufacturer”, which was a company that bonded, printed, and engraved books. The text was compiled by Reverend Francis John Stainforth, who served as a captain in the Bengal Cavalry before he was ordained on December 5th, He later worked at the All Hallows Staining Church in London, where he started the Philatelic society, and started to collect and catalog books.(1) “To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour.” William Blake* The Catalogue of the Library of Female Authors of the Rev. J. Fr. Stainforth provides readers with a microcosm of the 1863 world view, presented through a detailed catalogue the literary texts of the period. Stainforth, Francis J. Catalogue of Stainforth Library, Catalogue of the Library of Female Authors of the Rev. J. Fr. Stainforth. Bath: James Barnester, Manuscript before 1866
