The Chronicles of Waltham

by

[Gleig, George Robert]


London, Richard Bentley, 1835



Photobucket


Hardcover, Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall, viii + 318 [2] & 327 [1] & 379 [1]pp. Three quarter calf over marbled boards, spine with five raised bands and gilt decoration, contrasting spine labels bearing gilt titles, bookplates on front pastedowns, a few notes in pencil on front endpapers of vol.1 and author's name in pencil on title page of same, some occassional light foxing.

George Robert Gleig (1796-1888) was a Scot who, after being awarded the Snell exhibition to Balliol College in 1811 spent most of his life in England or serving overseas in the army. He saw action with Wellington's army in Spain and in North America and was wounded on a number of occassions. At the end of the Napoleonic wars Gleig retired on half pay and entered the church, possibly to satisfy his father, and became a curate in Kent. With a growing family to support Gleig turned to writing to supplement his income and his first success was 'The Subaltern,' an account of his military service. While Gleig didn't really benefit from the success of 'The Subaltern,' having sold the copyright to Blackwood for £150, it did provide a foundation on which he built a long and prolific writing career. His books were usually on military, church or imperial affairs and in them Gleig sought to inculcate in his readers a conservative, loyalist, and patriotic appreciation of Britain's character and destiny.
