Collection of 67 books belonging to Charles Armitage Brown and later Thomas King.
Charles Armitage Brown landed in New Plymouth, New Zealand on the passenger ship the Oriental on 7 November 1841. Here he joined his only son, Carlino, who had sailed to New Zealand aboard the Amelia Thompson earlier in 1841. Along with an assortment of goods brought to New Plymouth, including a saw mill and a fifteen horsepower steam engine, Charles included a chest of books from his extensive library.
Of the 67, books 47 are a part of a Theatre collection. This collection of Theatre volumes are comprised of individual works bound together as a collection presumably for Charles, as a part of his own personal library. The Theatre volumes are numbered up to 53; six of these missing from the original series.The remaining 20 books of Brown’s collection are various titles including the ancient classics - Homer’s Odyssey and Iliad and Vigil’s Aeneid, as well as The Poetical Works of the Rev. Dr E Young, Dryden and Fables and volumes III and IV of the Latin Teatro Comico Dell’ Avvocato Alberto Mota. Also included are six larger volumes titled Old Plays 1 through to 6. The most significant text in the collection is Fairfax’s Tasso. The Tasso contains the bookplate of Charles Cowden Clarke and writing identified by Keats scholar John Barnard as belonging to the hand of Clarke. Most significantly however, is that this edition of Tasso was listed by Charles amongst Keats belongings at the time of his death.
After the untimely death of Charles in 1842 his collection of books were passed by Carlino onto Thomas King.
