    Excerpt from The Golden Bowl, Vol. 1

    So much for some only of the suggestions of re-perusal here since, all the while, I feel myself awaited by a pair of appeals really more pressing than either of those just met; a minor and a major appeal, as I may call them: the former of which I take first. I have so thoroughly gone into things, in an expository way, on the ground covered by this collection of my writings, that I should still judge it superficial to have spoken no word for so salient a feature of our Edition as the couple of dozen decorative illustra tions. This series of frontispieces contribute less to orna ment, I recognise, than if Mr. Alvin Langdon Coburn's beautiful photographs, which they reproduce, had had to suf~ fer less reduction; but of those that have suffered least the beauty, to my sense, remains great, and I indulge at any rate in this glance at our general intention for the sake of the small page of history thereby added to my already volumin ous, yet on the whole so unabashed, memoranda. I should in fact be tempted here, but for lack of space, by the very question itself at large - that question of the general ac ceptability of illustration coming up sooner or later, in these days, for the author of any text putting forward illustrative claims (that is producing an effect of illustration) by its own intrinsic virtue and so finding itself elbowed, on that ground, by another and a competitive process. The essence of any representational work is of course to bristle with immediate images; and I, for one, should have looked much askance at the proposal, on the part of my associates in the whole business, to graft or grow, at whatever point, a picture by another hand on my own picture this being always, to my sense, a lawless incident. Which remark reflects heavily, of course, on the picture-book quality that contempo rary English and American prose appears more and more destined, by the conditions of publication, to consent, how ever grudgingly, to see imputed to it. But a moment's thought points the moral of the danger.
