Biographia Borealis

Hartley Coleridge (1796-1849), the eldest surviving son of the poet S. T. Coleridge, himself tried to earn a living as a writer and teacher, but his own disposition, the result of a difficult upbringing during which his frequently absent father used him as the subject of scientific and psychological research, made it difficult for him to function in the real world, and he relied for much of his life on the charity of friends for both income and home. This 1833 work on the 'lives of distinguished northerns' was originally commissioned by a publisher who subsequently went bankrupt, but the thirteen lives presented here - including Andrew Marvell, Anne Clifford, Richard Arkwright, and James Cook - are described with Coleridge's characteristic warmth. In his introduction, he makes a distinction between biography as part of public history and as personal, local or family history: these sketches definitely fall into the latter category.
