ELWIN, Whitwell (1816-1900). Writer and clergyman.
Autograph Letter Signed to [Robert] Cooke, John Murray's assistant, 1 page 8vo (laid down), Booton Rectory, Norwich, 13 September 1866. Denouncing a work on Byron.
'... I forgot to say in my letter to Murray that the work on Byron is evidently not written by the Countess herself. It has the unmistakeable stamp of having been put together by a practised French book-maker who has the art of saying a great deal without saying anything. It is not worth twopence.'
