Excerpt from The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science, and Art, 1890, Vol. 70 Two different political festivities were held last Meetings, &c. Saturday, the great Conservative and Unionist meeting at the Crystal Palace, and a dinner to Mr. Parnell. It must delight all lovers of cheerfulness to find that Mr. Balfour is only less satisfied with the situation than Mr. Parnell, and Mr. Parnell than Mr. Balfour. We do not think that Mr. Parnell has very much to be happy about; but a certain amount of con gratulation must be given to Mr. Balfour and Mr. Goschen for their pluck. Like them, we believe the cause of the Unio to be in no worse plight than it was some months agor; but, unlike them, we cannot quite affirm that nobody-has blundered in a certain little matter of certain clauses. However, if they like, we will say Not Guilty 5 but we must add, For Heaven's sake don't do it again. On Monday Lord randolph churchill made in sober, and yet by no means dull mood a really capital speech in favour of Mr. Wainwrights candi dature at Barrow - a speech which seems to show the speaker in a remarkably clothed and right-minded con dition. Let us welcome this condition by all means, and not inquire too curiously into the exact concatenation of events to which it is due. Wednesday was a great day for entertainments of various kinds - the chief being the Post Office Conversazione (it is to be hoped that the report of groans at her majesty's name by the dis affected Telegraph clerks is false); a dinner, attended by a very distinguished company, including the Dukes of connaught and clarence, to Lord reay, whom every one respects, even though every one does not agree as to his efficiency in governing Bombay and a sort of omnibus, or Noah's Ark, banquet given by the lord mayor to clerical -and ministerial persons of motley kinds. On Thursday the Royal Geographical Society entertained Mr. Stanley. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Literature and the Rise of the Interview

Today interviews proliferate everywhere: in newspapers, on television, and in anthologies; as a method they are a major tool of medicine, the law, the social sciences, oral history projects, and journalism; and in the book trade interviews with authors are a major promotional device. We live in an 'interview society'. How did this happen? What is it about the interview form that we find so appealing and horrifying? Are we all just gossips or is there something more to it? What are the implications of our reliance on this bizarre dynamic for publicity, subjectivity, and democracy? Literature and the Rise of the Interview addresses these questions from the perspective of literary culture. The book traces the ways in which the interview form has been conceived and deployed by writers, and interviewing has been understood as a literary-critical practice. It excavates what we might call a 'poetics' of the interview form and practice. In so doing it covers 150 years and four continents. It includes a diverse rostrum of well-known writers, such as Henry James, T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Djuna Barnes, William Burroughs, Philip Roth, J. M. Coetzee and Toni Morrison, while reintroducing some individuals that history has forgotten, such as Betty Ross, 'Queen of Interviewers', and Julian Hawthorne, Nathaniel's profligate son. Together these stories expose the interview's position in the literary imagination and consider what this might tell us about conceptions of literature, authorship, and reading communities in modernity.

In the late nineteenth century, Charles Conrad Abbott, a medical doctor and self-taught archaeologist, gained notoriety for his theories on early humans. He believed in an American Paleolithic, represented by an early Ice Age occupation of the New World that paralleled that of Europe, a popular scientific topic at the time. He attempted to prove that the Trenton gravels—glacial outwash deposits near the Delaware River—contained evidence of an early, primitive population that pre-dated Native Americans. His theories were ultimately overturned in acrimonious public debate with government scientists, most notably William Henry Holmes of the Smithsonian Institution. His experience—and the rise and fall of his scientific reputation—paralleled a major shift in the field toward an increasing professionalization of archaeology (and science as a whole). This is the first biography of Charles Conrad Abbott to address his archaeological research beyond the Paleolithic debate, including his early attempts at historical archaeology on Burlington Island in the Delaware River, and prehistoric Middle Woodland collections made throughout his lifetime at Three Beeches in New Jersey, now the Abbott Farm National Historic Landmark. It also delves into his modestly successful career as a nature writer. As an archaeologist, he held a position with the Peabody Museum at Harvard University and was the first curator of the American Section at the Penn Museum. He also attempted to create a museum of American archaeology at Princeton University. Through various sources including archival letters and diaries, this book provides the most complete picture of the quirky and curmudgeonly, C. C. Abbott.

The first history of the deaccession of objects from museum collections that defends deaccession as an essential component of museum practice. Museums often stir controversy when they deaccession works—formally remove objects from permanent collections—with some critics accusing them of betraying civic virtue and the public trust. In fact, Martin Gammon argues in Deaccessioning and Its Discontents, deaccession has been an essential component of the museum experiment for centuries. Gammon offers the first critical history of deaccessioning by museums from the seventeenth to the twenty-first century, and exposes the hyperbolic extremes of “deaccession denial”—the assumption that deaccession is always wrong—and “deaccession apology”—when museums justify deaccession by finding some fault in the object—as symptoms of the same misunderstanding of the role of deaccessions in proper museum practice. He chronicles a series of deaccession events in Britain and the United States that range from the disastrous to the beneficial, and proposes a typology of principles to guide future deaccessions. Gammon describes the liquidation of the British Royal Collections after Charles I's execution—when masterworks were used as barter to pay the king's unpaid bills—as establishing a precedent for future deaccessions. He recounts, among other episodes, U.S. Civil War veterans who tried to reclaim their severed limbs from museum displays; the 1972 “Hoving affair,” when the Metropolitan Museum of Art sold a number of works to pay for a Velázquez portrait; and Brandeis University's decision (later reversed) to close its Rose Art Museum and sell its entire collection of contemporary art. An appendix provides the first extensive listing of notable deaccessions since the seventeenth century. Gammon ultimately argues that vibrant museums must evolve, embracing change, loss, and reinvention.
