PITHY QUOTE FROM Coleridge: Collected Letters

Open quotes
I asked a stupid haughty fool, who is the Librarian of the Dean & Chapter's Library in this city, if he had Leibnitz. He answered — 'We have no Museum in this Library for natural curiosities; but there is a mathematical Instrument-seller in the town, who shews such [an]imalcula thro' a glass of great magnifying powers.' Heaven & Earth! — he understood the word 'live Nits.'

"There are cases," Coleridge once wrote, "in which more value may be conveyed by the history of a word than by the history of a campaign," and these Past Masters [collections] constitute a great aid to such enterprises. . . .

Impressive care has been taken in establishing these texts.
