Tennyson : Notebook 'X'

Tennyson, Alfred Tennyson, Baron, 1809-1892


<p style='text-align: justify;'>Tennyson used this black-sheep imitation morocco duodecimo notebook during the period 1833-1835. Though the last 65 leaves were excised, the remaining 58 folios contain 95 pages of manuscript and 19 pages of drawing. Only one page in the notebook is completely blank.</p> <p style='text-align: justify;'>Hallam Tennyson pencilled a note in the <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(2);return false;'>inside top cover</a> of the notebook which reads: '1833-35 read to Fitz & Spedding —35'. Perhaps Tennyson carried this notebook with him to read from at Mirehouse in 1835 when he and Edward FitzGerald stayed with Spedding.</p> <p style='text-align: justify;'><a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(11);return false;'>Folio 5</a> was ripped from the notebook but reattached with a fragment of cellophane tape until Sidney Cockerell properly restored it in the summer of 1975. Cockerell's other repairs included strengthening and repairing the leather on the spine, reinforcing edges and tears, deacidifying, and tightening the binding.</p>
