Notes Designed by William Harry Rogers. London: Griffith and Farran, Corner of St. Paul's Churchyard, [1871]. London: Chiswick Press: Printed by Whittingham and Wilkins, Tooks Court, Chancery Lane. 155x205x32mm. [16], 224p. On the title page verso: "/The engraving by Joseph Swain/" in gothic letters, printed within a scroll attached to an engraving tool. Also printed is the monogram "JS". On page one of the text, the title: "/Spiritual Conceits/" is printed. All pages have a single red fillet on the borders, with a cross and crown device printed in red on each corner. The design is by William Harry Rogers. From the introduction, by Rogers, entitled: ‘To the Reader’: “ The book now offered to the public is an original illustrated companion, having only such affinity to its predecessors as must needs result from its being composed of certain emblematical devices with accompanying letter-press, the devices and the letter-press so illustrating each other as to be manifestly inseparable. In the second place, the fact that the editor and the artist are the same person is probably, a novel feature. In the third place, the emblems have been so grouped as not to prevent a melange of ideas associated by accident, but to give, as far as possible, one consecutive series of thoughts, developing Savanarola’s comprehensive sentiment, “If there be no enemy, no fight; if no fight, no victory; if no victory, no crown.” The Fathers of the Church, the noblest divines of the Middle Ages and the Old English poets, have been pressed into the service of one fixed and unassailable idea, which is clenched in the motto, “No Cross, no Crown;” and to this they have been asked to do duty in such wise as out of discordant parts to make one harmonious whole.” This work is substantially a re-issue of Spiritual Conceits, BL Shelf mark C.109.b.1. Only the title page and the lettering on the covers and the spine have been changed. Bevelled boards. Gilt edges. Brown endpapers and pastedowns. Purple sand-grain cloth. Both covers identically blocked, in blind and relief on the lower cover and in gold and in blind and in relief on the upper. On the upper cover, a single gold fillet is blocked on the borders. Inside this, a border is blocked consisting of a pattern of dots, and of hatch "three trefoils" shapes. Between these, there is a pattern of "hanging diamonds". Near the head, a rectangular panel is blocked in gold, with a single border fillet blocked in relief. Within the panel, the words: "/ Emblems: of/" are blocked in relief in gothic letters. Near the tail, a similar rectangular panel is blocked in gold, with the words: "/ Christian: Life/" blocked within in relief in gothic letters. The centre is occupied by an intertwined cross patonce and crown, blocked in gold and in hatch. Both are surrounded by a border of repeating fleur-de-lis, in hatch, together with small circles and stars. A single rose is blocked on each inner corner. Further background decoration is provided by a repeating four point star pattern, blocked in relief. The spine is blocked in gold and in relief. A single gold fillet is blocked on the perimeter. From the head downwards, the decoration is: a panel formed by a single fillet; inside the panel, a small cross patonce is blocked in gold, surrounded by small stars and circles - all blocked in gold; The title words: "/ Emblems of/ Christian/ Life./" are blocked in relief in gothic letters within a gold lettering-piece; inside a long rectangle formed by a single gold fillet, a intertwined crown and cross are blocked in gold; the motto: "/ no/ cross/ no crown/" is blocked in relief within a scroll-shaped gold lettering-piece blocked above and below the crown and the cross; signed "WHR" in relief at the base of the motto; the word: "/ W.H. Rogers/" is blocked in relief in gothic letters within a rectangular gold lettering-piece; at the tail, inside a panel formed by a single gold fillet, a cross patonce is blocked surrounded by small circles and stars - all in gold. Apart from the title lettering, the design is identical to that of Spiritual Conceits, BL shelf mark C.109.b.1. Text copyright, Edmund M.B. King.
