About the cover image

On the cover is an adaptation of Samuel Lawrence’s portrait of Leigh Hunt. The quotation “I am a perfect glutton of books” is from a letter Hunt wrote to Mrs. S. C. Hall. The late Luther A. Brewer of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, copied both the portrait and quotation for a bookplate used in the first editions and association copies of the books in his Leigh Hunt library. Mr. Brewer’s collection, now at the University, is described in part in the first article of this issue.
