This printing of Sartor Resartus was to honour Carlyle’s importance to the printer. Along with Ruskin, Emerson and Milton, Carlyle was a great influence on the formation of Cobden-Sandersons thoughts and beliefs. Sartor Resartus was thought by many to be Carlyle’s most spiritual work and hence its significance to Cobden-Sanderson.
