Book submission: Selections from the Prose Writings of Matthew Arnold

Title: Selections from the Prose Writings of Matthew Arnold
Author: Arnold, Matthew
Publication date: New York, 1898
Library: Alderman Library, University of Virginia
Call number: PR4021 .G3 1898
Submitted by: Andrew Stauffer
Description:
Edwin Alderman’s copy, with his bookplate and ownership inscription dated “Feb. 1900” from the University of North Carolina. Alderman has bracketed and underlined the following passage, and written in the margin, “This is my creed”:

“Indeed, it is not in my nature — some of my critics would rather say not in my power — to dispute on behalf of any opinion, even my own, very obstinately. To try and approach truth on one side after another, not to strive or cry, nor to persist in pressing forward, on any one side, with violence and self-will, it is only thus, it seems to me, that mortals may hope to gain any vision of the mysterious Goddess, whom we shall never see except in outline, but only thus even in outline. He who will do nothing but fight impetuously towards her on his own, one, favorite, particular line, is inevitably destined to run his head into the folds of the black robe in which she is wrapped.”

A striking window onto the mind and perspective of Alderman, recorded privately in his copy of Arnold. Found on the open stacks of the library that bears his name, this copy has since been moved to UVA Special Collections.

Description:
Copy formerly owned by William Gordon McCabe (1841-1920), inscribed when he was a member of the “1st Regimental Virginia Artillery, 3rd Howitzer Battery, Campaign of 1861-62, Army of the Penninsula,” with maps showing the disposition of troops along the river at Camp Curtis at Lands End, VA, and a diagram of angles of bombardment for the howitzer.

McCabe entered the University of Virginia as a student in 1860, but soon thereafter joined the Confederate forces and fought with them until the end of the war. One of his Northern friends later called him “the kindest soul that ever cussed or killed a Yankee” (see Armisted Gordon’s memoir of McCabe).

Description:
In chapter XLIV, the reader and commenter asks “who was the black man” as the character in the story welcomes an unfamiliar black man into her home and chambers. At the end of the chapter, the commenter again asks “who was the black man” and answers their own question by stating that “it was depression.” This seems a rather personal, yet poignant interpretation of the text.

There are other sections marked by brackets and the word “important” and whole chapters that are emphasized by an indistinguishable word on the first page of the chapter.
