Thomas de Quincey
At least two sets of De Quincey's works circulated in the lending library: the 16-volume, The Works of Thomas De Quincey (Adam and Charles Black, 1862 – 1874), and the 14-volume, The Collected Writings of Thomas De Quincey, edited by David Masson (Adam and Charles Black, 1889 – 1890). Antoinette Bernheim borrowed volume 16 from Works: Suspiria de Profundis (1874). Mme Roussel borrowed volume 1 from Works: Confessions of An English Opium Eater (1862). Henri Michaux borrowed volumes 11, 14, and 16 from Works: Coleridge and Opium Eating and Other Writings (1863), Autobiographic Sketches 1790 – 1803 (1862), and Suspiria de Profundis. Michaux also borrowed volumes 1, 2, and 3 from The Collected Writings: Autobiography from 1785 to 1803, Autobiography and Literary Reminiscences, and London Reminiscences and Confessions of an Opium-Eater.
