Hogg, Jefferson Thomas - Memoirs of Prince Alexy Haimatoff - ( Item 111889 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 1952. First Thus. Very Good+ Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Very Good Dustjacket. Half inch loss to bottom of spine of dustjacket. Inch tear at top of front cover of dustjacket. Illustrated by Douglas Percy Bliss. In 1811 Jefferson Thomas Hogg wrote a picaresque novel, Memoirs of Prince Alexy Haimatoff. He published it anonymously, with the claim that it had been translated from Latin by a man named John Brown at Prince Haimatoff's request. The book did not sell very well. Later critics have noted a resemblance between Haimatoff and Percy Shelley. Shelley wrote a mostly positive review of the book published in The Critical Review in 1814, but he did criticise the author for promoting "promiscuous concubinage", apparently a veiled reference to Hogg's attempts to seduce his paramour Harriet Westbrook.
