SAUNDERS, Frederiek, author, born in London, England, 14 August, 1807. He came to New York in 1837, and opened a branch of the publishing establishment of Saunders and Ottlev, London, for the purpose of issuing" American editions of their own publications, and to seek the protection of an international copyright law. After a persistent effort had been made in behalf of this object, involving a large amount of money, the enterprise was abandoned. In this work Mr. Saunders obtained the co-operation and sympathy of the chief literary men of the country, and his six petitions to congress, presented at distant intervals, bore the signatures of Washington Irving, William Cullen Bryant, George Bancroft, and many others. He was thus the pioneer in this important movement. Mr. Saunders was for some time city editor of the "Evening Post," and in 1859 became assistant librarian of the Astor library, of which, since 1876, he has been librarian. Madison university gave him the degree of M.A. in 1853. He has been a frequent contributor to magazines and reviews, and has published "Memoirs of the Great Metropolis, or London from the Tower to the Crystal Palace" (New York, 1852); "New York in a Nutshell" (1853); " Salad for the Solitary, by an Epicure" (1853), and "Salad for the Social" (1856), of which many editions appeared in New York and London, and which were reissued in one volume, illustrated (New York, 1872; new ed., 1883); "Pearls of Thought, Religious and Philosophical, Gathered from Old Authors" (1858) ; "Mosaics " (1859); "Festival of Song" (1866); "About Women, Love, and Marriage" (1868): " Evenings with the Sacred Poets" (1869; revised and enlarged, 1885) ; "Pastime Papers" (1885) ; and "Story of some Famous Books" (London, 1887), in "The Book-Lover's Library." Most of his books were published both in New York and in London, and ran through numerous editions. He has also edited "Our National Centennial Jubilee " (1877), and, with Henry T. Tuckerman, "Homes of American Authors" (1853).
