Robinson 'chiefly remembered for his diaries, reading-lists, and letters … which provide valuable information about the writers and events of his time. He was the friend of Wordsowrth, Coleridge, Lamb, Hazlitt, and later Carlyle, and because of his indefatigable attendance at public lectures was able to provide useful descriptions of the lecturing of Coleridge, Hazlitt, and others.' A founder of both the University College, London, and the Athenaeum club. [OCEL].
