LINTON, E[ELIZA] LYNN.
Witch Stories.
London: Chapman and Hall, 1861. 1st edition. One of the best collections of witch stories presented to the Victorian public, collected by Eliza.Lynn Linton, author of "Azeth the Egyptian", "Amymone",etc. "Those who believe in direct and personal intercourse between the spirit-world and man, will probably accept every account with the unquestioning belief of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries; those who have have faith in the calm and uniform operations of nature, will hold chiefly to the doctrine of fraud; those who have seen much of disease and that strange condition callled "mesmerism" or "sensitiveness", will allow the presence of absolute nervous derangement, mixed up with a vast amount of conscious deception, which the insane credulity and marvellous ignorance of the time rendered easy to practice; and those who have been accustomed to sift evidence and examine witnesses, will be utterly dissatisfied with the loose statements and wild distortion of every instance on record."(author's preface). Pp.iv/428. Original binding, professionally re-cased at some time in the past, wear to corner tips. Scarce. Good.** "Publicly a virulently anti-feminist, privately an utterly emancipated and beholden to no man, Eliza Lynn Linton was an autodidact, having, like Virginia Woolf, largely educated herself in her father's library (of which, owing to the death of her mother when Eliza Lynn was just five and her father's lack of interest in supervising her, she had free run). The daughter and youngest of the twelve children of the Reverend J. Lynn, vicar of Crosthwaite, Cumberland, and on her mother's side granddaughter of Dr. Samuel Goodenough, the Bishop of Carlisle, Eliza Lynn was born at Keswick on 10 February 1822, and at the age of 23 moved to London on her own with the intention of becoming a professional writer..She became a member of Dickens's stable of writers, contributing regularly first to Household Words, and then to its successor, All the Year Round. Her first contribution to the latter occurred in May 1860 and her last August 1883. Whether for short stories or essays, Dickens pronounced her "Good for anything, and thoroughly reliable" (cited in Davis, 209). Indeed, such is her achievement as a writer for the periodicals of the period that Nancy Fix Anderson in The Victorian Encyclopedia has characterized her as "the first Englishwoman to receive a regular salary as a journalist" "(victorianweborg).
