Footnotes

  • Scarce. 'Two winters were spent, on medical advice, at Davos, a dismal health resort in the Swiss Alps ... A major amusement was the writing of comic verses and the making of crude woodcuts for the small booklets produced by his stepson on his printing press, including Not I and two collections of Moral Emblems' (ODNB). The eighth and final page serves as a colophon: "The author and the printer,/ With various kinds of skill, / Concocted it in Winter / At Davos on the Hill./ They burned the nightly taper / But now the work is ripe / Observe the costly paper, / Remark the perfect type! / Begun Feb. ended Oct. 1881"
