Biographical notes:

Henry Crabb Robinson was an English barrister and foreign correspondent, reporting from the continent during the Napoleonic Wars. In 1811 he began keeping a diary, in which he recorded thoughts and observation on friends and acquaintances, including most of the major literary figures in England and continental Europe. His diary remains an invaluable resource for Anglophiles and students of European Romanticism.
