Importance?: Uses a term that De Quincey coined
Evidence: "If I were to select any portion of your writing for special praise it w. be its oratical power, the length and grace of your sentences, your habit of eddying (as De Quincey calls it)..."
Context: On page 424 of the Memoirs, Symonds says that his father "belonged to the school which had been formed Wordsworth, Coleridge, De Quincey..." so it seems more likely that he would've read an older edition (an 1850 edition) owned by his father rather than one of the later editions, such as the 1860 edition.
