Excerpt

More than twelve years have elapsed since Arthur Penrhyn Stanley breathed his last, in his home at the Deanery, Westminster, on July 18th, 1881. There are many who can recall the shock with which the announcement was received, alike in his own country and beyond its borders. It touched with a pang of personal bereavement men and women who had never seen him; and it left a void in the hearts of numbers who, in every station, from the highest to the humblest, in the Old World and the New, had felt the spell of his unique and attractive personality. From that date to the present it has been widely felt that special value would attach to an adequate biography of one who held so prominent a place in the ecclesiastical, literary, and social history of more than a generation; and it has been thought right to prefix to these volumes some account of the circumstances which have delayed the completion of the work.
