John Alexander Fuller Maitland (7 April 1856 – 30 March 1936) was an influential British music critic and scholar from the 1880s to the 1920s. He encouraged the rediscovery of English music of the 16th and 17th centuries, particularly Henry Purcell's music and English virginal music. He also propounded the notion of an English Musical Renaissance in the second half of the 19th century, particularly praising Charles Villiers Stanford and Hubert Parry.

This book is concerned with the works of Sir Joseph Paxton, and not, therefore, except incidentally, with the story of his personal life, of his rise to fame and fortune, or of the unique relationship between Paxton and his employer, the sixth Duke of Devonshire. These latter aspects were authoritatively treated by Paxton's grand-daughter, the late Dr Violet Markham, CH, in her book Paxton and the Bachelor Duke (1935), based on surviving correspondence then in her possession between Paxton and his wife.
Maitland John Alexander Fuller 1856-. Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. 2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. I feel incrediby, incredibly lucky to have been a part of something that makes saying goodbye so hard. If there's one thing you take away from what I've said, please let it be this, always be your own hero and don't wait for change to happen, make it happen. Congratulations, and thank you. (applause) - Well done.
