ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The Anglo–German co-operation underlying this project has greatly benefited from generous support given to the two main research centres at Cardiff University and the Universität-Gesamthochschule Paderborn. The Cardiff team, based in the Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research (CEIR), has been supported for the duration of the project by a two-year Larger Research Grant from the British Academy, which provided funds to help employ Anthony Mandal as main researcher, as well as supporting travel between Cardiff and Paderborn and a series of visits to major holding libraries within Britain. Research at Cardiff has also benefited substantially through the general support given by the School of English, Communication and Philosophy at Cardiff (ENCAP) in the form of administrative support, equipment, and library purchases. Among fellow members of staff and colleagues who have offered help and advice are Jacqueline Belanger, Tom Dawkes, Tim Killick, Sharon Ragaz, and David Skilton.

     The Paderborn Novel Project is especially indebted to the owner of the Fürstliche Bibliothek Corvey, Franz Albrecht von Metternich-Sándor, Herzog von Ratibor und Fürst von Corvey, who opened his library for international scholarship, to his son Erbprinz Viktor, and the general administration at Schloß Corvey. The Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Forschung des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen, generously provided financial support for the cataloguing and microfiching of the Corvey Library, which in turn led to participation in the present bibliography. Grants from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) funded visits to Great Britain as well as research assistance. The Universität Paderborn provided general administrative help. Thanks are also due to Günter Tiggesbäumker, Hartmut Steinecke, Stephanie Junger, and Thorsten Liß for help and advice.

     The compilers would also like to offer special thanks to the following librarians and curators for facilitating their researches and answering queries: Iain Beavan (Aberdeen University Library); Michael Bott (University of Reading Library); Chris Fletcher, John Goldfinch (British Library); Mr J. J. Hall (University Library, Cambridge); Michael Richardson (University of Bristol Library); Christopher Skelton-Foord (Bodleian Library); Daniel J. Slive (University of California Library, Los Angeles). They are also grateful to the British Library for permission to cite and quote from the Bentley Papers; and also for permission to publish materials from the Longman archives held at Reading University. Special thanks are also due to Claire Connolly, Gillian Hughes, Fionnula Dillane, and Annika Bautz, who consulted material in (respectively): the Houghton and Widener libraries, Harvard; Princeton University Library; Trinity College, Dublin and the National Library of Ireland, and Newcastle University Library. Individual assistance was also provided by David Hewitt, in supporting work at Aberdeen, and Meiko O’Halloran. Throughout the project close contact has also been maintained with Rolf Loeber and Magda Stouthamer Loeber, whose ongoing work in compiling a Bibliography of Irish Fiction has fed into the present project in a number of beneficial ways.

GENERAL INTRODUCTION

Peter Garside

1. SCOPE AND PROCEDURE
This Bibliographical Survey, covering the years 1830–1836 inclusive, follows in the wake of The English Novel 1770–1829: A Bibliographical Survey of Prose Fiction Published in the British Isles, 2 vols. (Oxford, 2000). Like that bibliography its entries are taken wherever possible from first-hand examination of surviving copies of original first editions. The period here covered links Walter Scott’s last published novel, Tales of My Landlord, 4th series (1832), with Charles Dickens’s Sketches by ‘Boz’ (1836–7), his first work of fiction to be published as an entity. Often considered to be something of a hiatus, and so far having only encouraged one overview critical study, [1] the period under survey can now been seen as one of variety and richness, marked rather by diversification than any sustained upsurge in new titles, and exhibiting a number of transformations in the production and marketing of the novel. Leading up to the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837, this bibliography also offers another vital step towards the building of a comprehensive record of British fiction in the nineteenth century.

     From the inception of the project, the compilers were conscious of entering into territory likely to present new challenges and unexpected difficulties. As is stated in the conclusion to the Historical Introduction to the second volume of The English Novel 1770–1829, the year 1829 marks a watershed in the production of fiction in Britain, with a fuller realization of an extended middle-class market, as evident in the success of the Magnum Opus collected edition of Scott’s Waverley Novels, launched as a monthly publication from June that year. This in turn provided the model for Colburn and Bentley’s Standard Novels series, offering cheap one-volume editions of recently published novels, commencing with James Fenimore Cooper’s The Pilot in February 1831 at the price of 6s. (By December 1836, this series, now appearing under Bentley’s name alone, had reached its 56th volume.) A considerable amount of energy during the period evidently went into the production of such sets and series, ranging from compilations of older works of fiction, such as the Novelist’s Library, edited by Thomas Roscoe, planned as a classic collection, to the innovatory Library of Romance, edited by Leitch Ritchie, whose aim was to provide a regular supply a new works of fiction by leading contemporary writers, and which commenced with the Banims’ Ghost-Hunter and his Family (see 1833: 9).

     Another salient feature of these years is the increasing practice of publishing original fiction in numbers and through serialization in periodicals. The interchange between novel production and magazines containing significant amounts of fiction, such as Blackwood’s Edinburgh Magazine and the Metropolitan Magazine, as well as the new-style annuals and keepsakes, also becomes more variegated and in bibliographical terms problematic. One noticeable symptom here is the proportionately large increase in the output of works of fiction consisting of a variety of individual tales and sketches, a number of which openly acknowledge a source in periodicals of the time. Prior serialization in magazines also led in some cases to a situation where a work appeared in book form first in North America, the text having been pirated from the magazine version, before the first ‘official’ British edition: notable instances here are Captain Marryat’s Jacob Faithful (see 1834: 48) and Peter Simple (see 1834: 49), and Samuel Warren’s Passages from the Diary of a Late Physician (see 1832: 86). Other manifestations of a transformational fiction market include compilations of shorter fiction, usually presented as edited by one person, such as Andrew Picken’s The Club-Book (see 1831: 56), which contained new writing by John Galt, James Hogg, and others, and the onset of the ‘Penny Dreadful’ in the last two years under view, whose small fragmented units and sensationalist contents again throw out new bibliographical challenges over inclusion and description.

     As in the two volumes of The English Novel 1770–1829, the main part of the present Checklist consists of annual listings of novels as first published in Britain and Ireland during the seven years covered. These annual lists are reserved for what are considered in a suitably broad sense to represent works of adult prose fiction, and as a whole 610 entries will be found therein, to which a further 138 titles are added in the Appendices, making a sum total of 748. The criteria for inclusion generally match those employed while compiling the second volume of The English Novel, one result of this being that it is possible to make direct comparisons on fronts such as the number of new titles issued annually. Works published in series such as the Standard Novels are generally not included except in cases where there is no prior record of publication. The individual works published in Ritchie’s Library of Romance, on the other hand, are given entries under the appropriate year, as representing new works of fiction. In the case of three series of original titles produced by Harriet Martineau during the period, however, it has been decided to supply the record in the form a separate Appendix (1), partly in view of the specially programmatic nature of their contents, and also to avoid the 34 titles involved unbalancing the main listings. Number publications are included in the main listings granted there is clear evidence of a subsequent sale in book form, and it is the completed form that provides the entry, though details of constituent parts and evidence of prior serialization will often be found in the notes to the entry.

     In searching for potential titles in the earlier stages of the project, a wide net was cast in a number of directions. Initial lists were drawn up from various secondary sources, these including Andrew Block’s English Novel, 1740–1850 and Montague Summers’s Gothic Bibliography, both used guardedly owing to their sprawling and irregular nature, as well as the bibliographically reliable catalogues of collections of nineteenth-century fiction assembled by Michael Sadleir and Robert Lee Wolff. [2] Contemporary listings have also proved an invaluable source, and trawls have been made through the lists of new publications in the Edinburgh Review and Literary Gazette, and the advertisements and notices in two newspapers, The Star and The Morning Chronicle. Amongst modern resources, the procedure has involved isolation of all titles given Dewey decimal classification as fiction in the Nineteenth-Century Short-Title Catalogue (823 English Fiction, etc.), as well as a variety of electronic searches through the OCLC FirstSearch WorldCat online database (OCLC). Full searches were conducted in specialist collections of fiction at Bristol and Aberdeen universities, the latter consisting to a large degree of novels in their original boards. Once more, too, the unique collection of novels at Schloss Corvey in Germany has served as a mainstay both in terms of searching titles and recording details from original copies for the entries. Throughout the bibliography, 330 of the entries assembled describe a copy held in the Corvey library, the large proportion occurring in the imprint years 1830–4, that is prior to the death of Victor Amadeus, Landgrave of Hesse-Rotenburg, the main collector, in 1834.

     The search for original editions not held by Corvey (or, in a few instances, where the Corvey copy is imperfect) has mainly been conducted in leading British libraries. One considerable factor has been the much more extensive holdings of the British Library for this period, compared with the earlier years of the nineteenth century. Some 309 of the entries are taken from copies in the British Library, and the project is much indebted to the efficiency of service provided at St Pancras and the special consideration given to our researchers. Owing to the concentration of resources, and the state of copies found there, the Aberdeen holdings also offered an efficient way of examining copies for some 35 entries. Novels not found in the above sources have been searched and recorded in the Bodleian Library, Cambridge University Library, the National Library of Ireland, the National Library of Scotland, Newcastle University Library, and Trinity College, Dublin. Where the British libraries failed to yield a copy the project turned to North America, and the entries will show a few cases of copies recorded at the libraries at Harvard, Princeton, and University of California, Los Angeles. In only ten instances has it been necessary to reconstitute entries from secondary sources, as a result of not being able to locate any surviving copy.

     One remaining special feature of this Checklist, compared with its predecessors, is the extensive number of titles included in Appendix 2 (104 works in all), which is reserved for titles which failed, albeit often narrowly, to match the criteria used for inclusion into the main annual listings. This itself reflects the proliferation of sub-genres such as juvenile fiction at this period, as well as an overlapping with related non-fictional modes, and beyond that no doubt the diversification of the readership for fiction. A brief rationale for inclusion under one of the various sub-headings of this Appendix will be found in its main header, though inevitably some of the decisions made over exclusion from the main listings and positioning within the sub-sections have been of a hair-line nature. Unlike the final Appendix in volume 2 of The English Novel, the present equivalent Appendix is not selective in principle but is meant to display as full a record as possible of the types included. Items that normally have not been given entries in either the main listings or appendices include children’s fiction (pre-puberty), chapbooks and tracts, very short tales, miscellanies (those consisting predominantly of essays, poetry, and/or sketches), and periodical works (including annuals, gift books, and uncollected serial works). Many such works have nevertheless been examined in the course of the project’s searches, or in a few instances some putative titles have been found to be non-existent ‘ghost’ titles or to belong to another period—these ‘rejects’ amounting as a whole to 322 items (of which a list has been retained).

2. READING THE ENTRIES

Arrangement
In the main listings entries are listed chronologically by year of imprint. Within each year, anonymous works whose authors have not been identified are arranged alphabetically by title, and precede entries for novels by known authors and/or translators, ordered alphabetically by author’s name, or by the pseudonymous name where the author’s proper name has not been discovered. In the case of compilations, the editor’s name is given, though the authorship of individual constituent pieces where known is supplied in the ‘Notes’ field of entries. Where an element of doubt remains about an attribution a question mark is placed before the author name (or alternative names where there is more than one claimant for authorship). Entries for authors with several works in one year are ordered alphabetically by title, though evidence can normally found within the entry itself about the precise chronology. In those few cases where it is difficult to determine which of two editions or translations of a novel were issued first, separate (a) and (b) entries are supplied. Novels with volumes bearing different imprint years are not normally separately entered under the respective years of publication, unless, for example, a significant break took place in the publication or a new series of the title is clearly indicated. On this latter basis, separate entries are provided for both Mary Russell Mitford’s Our Village, ‘fourth series’ (1830) and ‘volume V’ (1832), as for the second series of William Nugent Glascock’s Naval Sketch Book (1834). The arrangement of the appendices follows the same chronological and alphabetical procedures as the main listings, though imprint years do not provide separate headings.

     Cross-referencing within the entries has mainly been used as a means of signalling: a) publication over different calendar years, with markers from years other than the one where the entry is placed; b) cases of contested or multiple authorship, where the alternative authors are not apparent in the alphabetical ordering; c) the appearance or announcement of the same novel under different titles in the first year of publication. Alternative names by which a single author might now be known are generally not indicated in this way, the name chosen for the entries normally being that which an author published under or was known by during the years under examination, though cross-references (e.g. from married names, or aristocratic titles) are provided in the Author Index, which also lists pseudonyms with cross-references to real author names where known.

     Where no surviving copy of a novel in its original edition has been discovered, and its title and publication details have been reconstituted from secondary evidence, the reconstituted entry is marked with an asterisk * before the title and the absence of any located copy is noted in the line reserved for shelf-marks and catalogues. Where not already explicit, sources are given for the various elements of the reconstitution.

Components of each entry
A standard entry consists of the following eight ‘fields’:

    1. Entry number
    2. Author name(s)
    3. Full title
    4. Place of publication and imprint details
    5. Pagination, format, and price
    6. Contemporary listings
    7. Location and shelf-mark of copy examined and references to other catalogues and copies
    8. Notes

i) ENTRY NUMBER
In the main listings, numbering starts freshly with each year. Individual entries numbers consist of year followed by sequential number (e.g. 1835: 57), and these numbers both head the entries and are also cited for cross-referencing and in the indexes. Within the two appendices, the same principle applies, with sub-section letter followed by sequential number (e.g. A: 17, D: 4); a full citation in these cases also includes the appendix number (e.g. Appendix 2, C: 7).

ii) AUTHOR NAME(S)
Each entry opens with the name(s) of the author, editor, or translator, where known. Unless bracketed, names are given as they appear on the title-page. Square brackets are used to denote information supplied by outside information. Additions which help complete names, supplied through researched information (e.g. a fuller or extra Christian name), are likewise given in square brackets. In instances where information is found within the text (e.g. a signature at the end of a preface), but is not displayed on the title-page, this is denoted by the use of surrounding curly brackets—as, for example, in BRAY, {A}[nna] {E}[liza], in which case the title-page attribution is to ‘Mrs. Bray’, but the Introduction is signed ‘A. E. B’. ‘Mr’, Mrs’, and ‘Miss’ are omitted, unless these are the only qualification to the surname or indication of gender. Where no author has been identified, the entry opens with ‘ANON.’. In some cases where evidence concerning the authorship is not conclusive, information about possible attributions can be found in the notes field, with references to names also being given in the Author index. Translators and editors are treated similarly to authors, with the additions of ‘(trans.)’ and ‘(editor)’ immediately after the names: author names always have sequential priority. A pseudonymous name is followed by ‘[pseud.]’, with doubt as to whether the name is real or not being indicated by ‘[pseud.?]’

iii) FULL TITLE
The title is given in full as it appears on the title-page, with block capitals being used throughout, no attempt being made to replicate peculiar fonts and combinations of letters found in the originals. Mottoes and special headers are generally excluded, though the notes often pick up on special features of interest. In the case of works appearing as a part of a series, the series title-page (where extant) is also transcribed in full in the notes. Where an engraved title-page is found in addition to a standard (conventionally printed) title-page, the latter is transcribed to make the entry, though any significant variants or additional features in the engraved title are recorded in the notes. Use of ‘[sic]’ to indicate features such as idiosyncratic spellings is sparing; and in a few cases, especially where misreading is possible, supplementary punctuation is supplied is square brackets. Where variations are found between the titles of the different volumes of a novel, the differences are recorded in the notes section.

iv) PLACE OF PUBLICATION AND IMPRINT DETAILS
The first-named place of publication on the original imprint is given first, followed (after a colon) by the full details of publishers, booksellers, and printers as they appear on the title-page up to the imprint date. A comma separates this information from the date, which is always given in arabic numerals even when in roman on the original. Where a place of publication is not named on the imprint but is inferred or researched from other information, this is given in square brackets. Where no date is given on the title-page the abbreviation n.d. (no date) is used, followed by an attributed date in square brackets. With multi-volume works the first volume normally supplies the details, and any differences found in the imprint information in other volumes is recorded in the notes. In the case of different years of publication between volumes of the same work, this is presented in the form of a split date at the end of the line, for example ‘1834/36’. Printer details not found within the imprint itself are not recorded in this field, though details found elsewhere in colophons and other printer marks (say, on the verso of the title-page) are systematically recorded in the notes section (see below).

v) PAGINATION, FORMAT, AND PRICE
The last roman and arabic page of each volume is given, with instances where both types of pagination are continuous being recorded in the notes. These page numbers are preceded, in the case of multi-volume novels, by the volume number in upper-case roman. Where volumes of the same work bear different imprint dates this is indicated in parenthesis after the volume numbers. Illustrations are abbreviated as ‘ill.’, and are signalled after the page number, separated by a comma: normally this is reserved for cases where pictorial images are involved, vignettes consisting only of a design not normally being counted as illustrations. Where pagination information is unavailable because no copy has survived, the number of volumes only is indicated.

     The format of each copy examined has been individually checked by collation of leaves. Whereas in the period 1770–1829 the majority of novels were published either in octavo (8vo) or duodecimo (12mo) formats, with gatherings respectively of eight or twelve leaves, the increasing use of the smaller 18mo and 16mo formats in the period under view has led to fresh complications. Copies in 18mo examined often collate in sixes, but sometimes in twelves and sixes, whereas 16mo generally collates in eights. A main indication in these cases then is that page sizes are smaller than would be expected for 8vos or for 12mos in half-sheets. Due consideration has been taken of this factor in making decisions, though because of the variations found between copies of the same work, owing to cropping and other factors, no record of page diameters has been given in the entries. Secondary sources such as contemporary listings sometimes give useful information about format, but because of its variable quality this has at best been used guardedly.

     Price is given in shillings (s) and pence (d) as found in the work itself or in newspapers and other listings, with the accompanying description where found (most commonly ‘in boards’). Sources for the information are also given, in parenthesis, these including spine label (s.l.), MC, LG, ER, and ECB. All variants are provided.

vi) CONTEMPORARY LISTINGS
Unlike in the preceding printed volumes of The English Novel, no attempt is made to record surviving reviews, a task made all the more difficult by the increasing diversification of reviewing outlets and methods during this period. As an alternative, this field in its present form records details from a variety of contemporary listings, which offer invaluable information on matters such as impression numbers, price, and (most pertinent here) dates of first publication. Four categories of record are provided, in the following order: publishing records (the Bentley Papers and Longman Archives); newspaper notices (The Star and Morning Chronicle); listings of new works from periodicals (the Literary Gazette and Edinburgh Review); and, finally, The English Catalogue of Books, 1800–1836 (ECB). A typical entry then might look like: BP (1 Jan 1832); Star (2 Jan 1832); LG 780: 842 (31 Dec 1831); ER 54: 560 (Dec 1831); ECB 84 (Dec 1831). In the case of entries from newspapers, The Star is used as the main source until its demise in 1835, the Morning Chronicle serving as its replacement for 1836 and as a source in 1835 when information from The Star is absent or less accurate. The entry given from newspapers is the first considered to give an indication of the publication date of the work, though other information gleaned from this source (such as advance notices) is provided in the notes section. In the case of periodicals, the information is taken from the list of ‘New Books/ Publications’ found near the end of the weekly issues of the Literary Gazette and the quarterly numbers of the Edinburgh Review. For pinpointing dates of publication, then, one might expect a diminishing chance of precision as the entries proceed, with the exception of ECB which in these last years that it records is more focused than previously.

vii) LOCATION AND SHELF-MARK OF COPY EXAMINED AND REFERENCES TO OTHER CATALOGUES AND COPIES
This field always begins with an abbreviation for the library holding the copy of the novel examined (or statement of inability to locate a copy), followed by the holding library’s press-mark. In the case of novels held by the Corvey library, where no current catalogue numbers exist, the ISBN of the Corvey Microfiche Edition (CME) is given as the most useful identifying call number. In a handful of instances, where the Corvey copy is incomplete or otherwise imperfect (e.g. lacks a subscription list), alternative copies have been sought to provide the entry, the presence of a copy in Corvey in these cases being signalled by the inclusion of the CME ISBN number after the shelf-mark of the actual contributing library. (In a few cases, where no CME exists for the Corvey copy used, the library alone is signalled, though if a CME number for same title in a subsequent edition is available the reference number is supplied under ‘Further Editions’ at the end of the entry.)

     Details are then given from two leading modern database catalogues of printed books and holding libraries: the Nineteenth-Century Short-Title Catalogue (NSTC) and OCLC FirstSearch WorldCat Catalogue (OCLC). In both instances, a reference number is given first, followed by information about the number of holding libraries in parenthesis. Where NSTC includes more than one number for the same item (under both author and title, for example), the number cited is normally the one based on author, or, failing that, the largest of the entries. NSTC, which itself is based on library catalogues, at this phase records holdings from six British and Irish libraries and two major North American libraries:

British Library; University Library, Cambridge; Trinity College, Dublin; National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh; University of Newcastle Library; Bodleian Library, Oxford; Library of Congress, Washington; Harvard University.

The library holdings given in parenthesis relate to these institutions only, and are ordered alphabetically by abbreviation, with British and Irish (BI) libraries first, followed by North American (NA) ones. In each entry, the holding libraries given are amalgamated from all NSTC entries for the work.

     OCLC entries differ slightly by giving the accession number for the record chosen followed by the number of holding libraries in parenthesis: e.g. OCLC 42447732 (42 libs). In a number of cases, more than one OCLC record is available for what is in all probability the same original edition, and in these cases the policy has been to choose the more substantial record, granted its details unequivocally match the edition being described for the entry. Because of the complexity of the situation sometimes found, no attempt has been made to amalgamate the numbers of holding libraries given in different records. Where the OCLC record used applies only to microform copies of the work, this is recorded. Unlike NSTC, OCLC is a database which is being constantly updated and enlarged, and the details supplied apply to the period 2002–3 when the present entries were being assembled.

     When one of the libraries specified in NSTC provides the actual copy consulted for the entry (and is thus given with shelf-mark at the beginning of the entry), that library is omitted from the holding libraries abbreviated later in parenthesis. xNSTC and xOCLC indicate that a novel in the edition used for the entry (in all normal circumstances the first edition) is not included in NSTC/OCLC.

vii) NOTES
The notes section is not used to record information comprehensively, but is intended primarily to supply readers with additional information of interest, including for example details of dedications, subscription lists, and advertisements within the novels. In the case of translations from another language, basic details are provided of the original source text and date and place of publication. Additional information about authorship is also placed near the beginning of this section, with reasons for new attributions and explanations of difficulties encountered in ascription. Details concerning the actual copy of the work examined generally follow the arrangement of its contents, while further notes are given in much the same order as other parts of the full entry. Information concerning impression numbers, as found in publishing archives, for example, are generally found near the end of the main notes section.

     In two particular areas the notes make an advance compared with the previous printed Bibliography, covering 1770–1829. In view of the relatively high proportion of works of fiction incorporating a variety of separate tales, an effort has been made to record in some detail the titles of the constituent items and the inclusive page numbers in which they are contained. In giving the pagination of tales within works, the beginning of the tale is counted from the individual subordinate title-page (where this appears); and normally the wording of a tale’s title is given from the header of the tale itself, rather than the contents list. The other advance is that a systematic effort has been made in the notes to record printer information as found in colophons and other printer’s marks outside the main imprint. In the case of London printers, a degree of standardization has taken place, with the suppression of recurrent details such as ‘London’ and ‘Printed by’ from the description given, some ironing out of accidentals such as hyphens and initial capitals, and (where there are variations in detail within a work) utilization generally of the fullest form found. In the case of non-London printers, where a place other than London is given this is included in the description: e.g. Printer’s mark reads: ‘Dumfries: Printed by John M‘Diarmid and Co.’, with similar colophon. Where colophons and printer’s marks of different printers are found between the different volumes of a work, indicating (say) that it was parcelled out between more than one firm, this is also recorded in detail. Where no printer information is found (other than in the main imprint), this is usually noted.

     Also listed are further editions of the novel published up to 1870. In identifying these, NSTC and OCLC have both played a major part, though additional information has also been supplied by reliable sources such as the published records of the collections of Michael Sadleir and Robert Lee Wolff, and occasionally through hands-on work in existing library collections. Up to five further editions published in Britain and Ireland are listed, with supporting references in appendices (in those cases where xOCLC or xNSTC has been recorded in the main entry, a full reference number is also given for the first British or Irish edition to found in those resources). Places of publication for further editions are recorded where they differ from that of the main entry. Where more than five editions have been identified, the number of additional editions reliably identified is given in square brackets (e.g. as [at least 5 more edns. to 1870]). The sequence of British and Irish editions is then followed by citation of the first known North American edition before 1870, except in cases where the American edition preceded the British (in which case the latter provides the entry, and information about its American predecessor is provided in the main notes section). In cases where different editions appear to have been published in the first known year of publication in North America (e.g. in both New York and Philadelphia), the first of these alphabetically by place of publication is given, followed by the other(s).

     Details are also supplied of the first known translations into foreign languages up to 1870, with a record of titles where these differ substantively and/or interestingly from the English original.

BP notes: ‘Shortly after the publication of this work, a pamphlet was issued entitled, “A Key to the Royal Novel ‘The Exclusives’ ” (London: Marsh and Miller. Edinburgh: Constable.) // The Authors of the pamphlet state that, believing in the good accruing from satirical personality, they have paid special attention to the remarkable novel […] called “The Exclusives,” in order to extend the sphere of its usefulness by making the personality more apparent, and by supplying the real name of the characters who figure in its pages. It is further added that one of the objects of the story is “to delineate the real features of that mysterious society, so long known to exist in the very heart of the high classes, under the denomination of the ‘Exclusives.’ ” // At the back of the title is printed a Key to the Characters of the Story, the real names being indicated by some of the letters only. In the copy of the pamphlet, in the British Museum [now in the British Library] the majority of these skeleton names have been filled in by hand.’ BP for 1829 contains a copy of the key at the end of vol. OCLC 31042650 provides details of this ‘Key’.

Notes. List of contents, vol. 1, p. [v], precedes Preface, pp. [vii]–xii, which itself is dated ‘Dublin, 1st March, 1830’. The latter stresses the truly indigenous nature of the collection: ‘The reader may finally believe that these volumes contain probably a greater number of facts than any other book ever published on Irish life’ (p. xi). It also affirms that the author ‘has studiously avoided local idiom, and that intolerable Scoto-Hibernic jargon which pierces the ear so unmercifully—but has preserved every thing Irish, and generalized the phraseology, so that the book, wherever it may go, will exhibit a truly Hibernian spirit’ (p. xi). Vol. 1 comprises: ‘Ned M‘Keown’, pp. [1]–42; ‘The Three Tasks, or the Little House under the Hill’, pp. [43]–92; ‘An Irish Wedding’, pp. [93]–156; ‘Larry M‘Farland’s Wake’, pp. [157]–216; ‘The Battle of the Factions.

This notes: ‘The eminent personage who figures as the hero was in his time a pattern of wisdom, bravery, and generosity. He has been therefore chosen as a proper theme by the writer of romance, who spurning the bounds of reality, has created an ideal world of his own, with that wildness and extravagance of fancy which characterise an eastern imagination’ (pp. [v]–vi). It also states: ‘This circumstance has induced me, under the auspices of the High and Illustrious Personages who contribute to the Oriental Translation Fund, to offer to the public the following English version, as a specimen of the romance of a nation that has long ranked as the most refined in Asia’ (p. vi), adding that ‘The manuscript from which the present translation is made, was procured in the East in 1824. It gives no notice as to the place and time of writing’ (p. vii). The text is richly annotated with references to the original language, customs, etc. of the East. Printer’s mark and colophon of J.

Notes. Preface, pp. [iii]–v, notes: ‘The principal portion of the first part is made up from a personal narrative, and the peculiarities of the narrator resemble those of a singular, but worthy man. Some of his original letters are given in the Appendix as curiosities, and because they have been made use of in this work, and treat with feeling and sagacity of an impressive topic’ (pp. [iii]–iv). It also states: ‘The author having recently superintended a Colonial experiment of great magnitude, it may be imagined that in Judiville he has described his own undertaking. This is not the case; for the narrative embraces the substance of his knowledge, whether obtained by inquiry, observation, or experience. The subject is more important than novels commonly treat of.—A description, which may be considered authentic, of the rise and progress of a successful American settlement, cannot but be useful to the emigrant who is driven to seek a home in the unknown wilderness of the woods. […] The book, therefore, though written to amuse, was not altogether undertaken without a higher object’ (pp. iv–v). Appendix occupies pp. [297]–315 in vol. 3, followed by a glossary, pp. [317]–323. List of ‘Errata’ follows main text in vol. 3. Adv. list at end of vol. 3 for ‘Popular Novels just Published by Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street’.

Printer’s marks and colophons of Samuel Bentley, Dorset Street, Fleet Street. In his Memoirs of a Literary Veteran (London, 1851), vol. 3, p. 213, Gillies notes: ‘the first use I made of my little gasp of time was to finish a book, “Basil Barrington,” for which Mr. Colburn had already paid me £200 before it was written. But it was eventually spoiled, not for want of good will or industry on the part of the author, but because during the whole time which ought to have been devoted to it (namely, the six months previous), I was inevitably occupied in pecuniary arrangements, and in travelling about from London to Edinburgh, from Edinburgh to Aberdeen, and vice versa. At length my publisher became impatient for his book, which ought to have been completed long ago, and I fed the press with hasty scrolls till the stipulated number of pages were filled. Thus it turned out little better than a piece of mere mechanical work, and a good opportunity was lost.’

Notes. NSTC states that ‘Martin Doyle’ was Hickey’s pseudonym. Preface (3 pp. unn.), dated ‘Ballyarley, June 1st 1830’, notes that ‘some striking coincidences’ between the present work and the recently published Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry by William Carleton (1830: 37) are purely accidental, the author having not seen the prior work until after completing his own, as his ‘very respectable’ publishers can vouch for. The object of the author ‘has been to convey sound practical advice to the rural population of his country […] free from the vulgar caricature, as well as the coarseness and blasphemies, with which too many Irish tales of the present day, so copiously and offensively abound […] In the occasional introduction of Anglo–Hibernian diction, phraseology, and pronunciation, he trusts he has not deviated from the faithful delineation of Irish character, in the South Eastern parts of the Province of Leinster.’ Adv. as ‘Lately Published’ (verso facing t.p.) for the same author’s ‘Hints originally intended for the small farmers of the County of Wexford, but suited to most parts of Ireland […] a new edition, with Hints on the Cultivation of Tobacco.’ Printer’s mark of John S. Folds, 56, Great Strand Street.

A few of the stories were composed purposely for children; but as people do not, now-a-days, write down to those little folks, and as the Author has herself, in common with her wisers and betters, a strong propensity to dip into children’s books when they happen to fall in her way, she by no means thought it necessary to omit them.’ List of contents, pp. [vii]–viii.

It adds: ‘As he [Niemcewicz] knew the Editor did not understand the Polish language, he presented him with a German translation of it, executed under his own inspection, from which the English edition now presented to the public has been translated’ (pp. [xvi]–xvii). In the preface the editor also describes his impressions of Jewish life received during a journey through Poland, and outlines Niemcewicz’s intention: ‘That gentleman [Niemcewicz] lamented the condition of so large a part of the population, and regretted, that for their own sakes, so little progress has attended the attempts that had been directed towards leading them to the knowledge and acceptance of the Christian faith. He said, that attempts had been made, as it was found impracticable to convert them into good Christinas, to convert them into good subjects, without interfering with their religious prejudices. As he thought a moral and industrious Jew better than a knavish and idle one, he had written a Tale, with the hope of benefiting them’ (p. xvi).

Notes. The work contains two engravings, set as frontispieces, illustrating scenes from the constituent tales: ‘The Marquis Carantani interrupted at his favourite tree, by the young Marquis di Dalminico, and his Brother’; ‘Di Salvo Brought before the Tribunal at the Grand Inquisition’. Final page contains an untitled address by the author, which states: ‘The authoress of the foregoing pages, having arrived at the conclusion of her work, entreats the indulgence of the reader for the numerous errors which, doubtless, may be observed; though she trusts her work is free from those glaring defects which lead aside the understanding, and which enervate and corrupt the heart. The first attempt of an author must be feeble. Difficulties without number interrupt his progress. One, not the least among them, is the fear of having his efforts crushed once more by the voice of the critic. If but a trifling degree of merit is allowed by the generous heart, who can regard the feelings of an author, these pages will not have been written in vain; for who will then experience a portion of that pleasure which will reward her for all cares.’ Printer’s colophon reads: ‘W. Hodgetts, Printer, Spiceal-Street, Birmingham.’ Dating taken from Block.

This is followed by an address ‘To the Public’, pp. [lxxxv]–[lxxxvi], dated ‘London, January, 1830. This discusses the problems surrounding the publication of Wilson’s Memoirs, complaining that ‘many expressions have been put into my mouth, which never issued from my pen’ (p. [lxxxv]).

Note in vol. 1, verso of t.p., states: ‘In consequence of certain peerages, since this work was written, an awkward coincidence of names occurs, in one or two instances, which it is hardly necessary to say is entirely accidental.’ Preface, pp. v–viii, addressed to the ‘Kind Reader’, opens: ‘There is one great truth which many parts of this book were intended to illustrate—viz. the monopoly of political power is a curse, and not a blessing, to those by whom it is retained’. It also includes quotation from Westminster Review (Jan 1824), and closes with mention of work in educating people of Henry Brougham. Adv. lists (vol. 1, 4 pp. unn.; vol. 2, 1 p. unn.) at end of each vol. for books published by Cochrane and Co.

Preface, pp. [iii]–xv, begins: ‘It is several years since I translated from the Tamul the following tales, called the Vedàla Cadai (Vetàla Cat’hà, Sans.) partly for amusement and partly for the sake of keeping up a knowledge of the language in which they were written. I subsequently presented my version to the Royal Asiatic Society, under a belief that it might prove useful to any one engaged in the study of the Tamul language, and it has lately attracted the attention of the Oriental Translation Committee, who have been pleased to give directions for its publication’ (p. 3). Main text divided into 24 ‘stories’. No publisher imprint on t.p., and no printer information found.

Notes. ‘Advertisement’, pp. [iii]–iv, notes: ‘It will, doubtless, be in the recollection of many of the readers of “The Gentleman in Black,” that a portion of the work appeared some years ago, in a periodical entitled “The Literary Magnet.” That publication, however, having long since been discontinued, the greater part of this volume has never yet appeared in print. At the request of the Subscribers, who were anxious that the tale should be completed, it was the author’s intention to have had it immediately re-published in an entire form, but on applying for the remainder of the manuscript, he was informed that it was mislaid. He has, therefore, been under the necessity of entirely re-writing it, and now,—having received his latest corrections—aided by the powerful talent of Mr. George Cruikshank,—it is presented to the public. // Old Bond Street, Nov. 25, 1830.’ Contains six illustrations. Printer’s mark and colophon of Bradbury and Evans, Bouverie Street. Collates in sixes. 2nd edn. announced in Star (30 June 1831), as ‘A Humorous Story, by a Contributor to Blackwood’s Magazine’.

Notes. Preface (2 pp. unn.), in vol. 1, undercutting the concept of prefaces in general. This is followed by ‘Note’ (2 pp. unn.) apologizing for inconsistencies in proper names, and (ostensibly) acknowledging the help of the house readers and printers: ‘The long sentences made short, the obscure made plain, the favourite words that would, like “Monsieur Tonson, come again,” the duplicate quotations,—for the amendment of all these, I beg to make at once my acknowledgments and my thanks.’ This last also notes that one of the characters has been called by various names in different parts of the novel, owing to the author’s difficulty in settling on a final name: ‘Only a modern author can know the plague of names. I have read the Peerage through twice, and actually became interested in the divisions of the House, to see if there was “a pretty name” in either majority or minority.’ Printer’s marks and colophons of J. Moyes, Castle Street, Leicester Square.

Preface, pp. [v]–vii, dated ‘January, 1831’. This cites Sir Walter Scott as an authority on the question of the legitimacy of modern language in the historical novel, stating that ‘in the attempt to add to the attractiveness of the incidents, by so “translating” them into the feelings of the present day, he [the author] […] trusts, should he, in any respect, have accomplished his purpose, that any apparent neglect of the claims of antiquity will be willingly excused […] The object he has sought has been to amuse’ (p. vii).

Preface, pp. [vii]–xi, notes: ‘although most of the tales are authentic, there is one, purely my own invention, namely, “The Gridiron.” // Many of them were originally intended merely for the diversion of a few friends round my own fire-side—there, recited in the manner of those from whom I heard them, they first made their début, and the flattering reception they met on so minor a stage, led to their appearance before larger audiences—subsequently, I was induced to publish two of them in the Dublin Literary Gazette, and the favourable notice from contemporary prints, which they received, has led to the publication of the present volume’ (pp. [vii]–viii). Introduction occupies pp. [xiii]–xx, while list of contents (1 p. unn.) and ‘Glossary’ (2 pp. unn.) also precede main text. The tales consist of: ‘King O’Toole and St. Kevin.

Footnote reads: ‘*The reader will scarcely credit that this Dedication cost the author full two months’ cruel rumination. Such, however, is the fact. The plan, it will be observed, is novel, and combines many advantages. Each purchaser may hand down to posterity his or her name, simply by inscribing it in the second line, and adding an appropriate eulogium’ (p. [iii]).

Notes. Dedication to ‘His Most Gracious Majesty, King William IV’. Preface, pp. viii–x, dated Nov 1831, notes: ‘Much have I drawn from life, and more from fancy. Nevertheless, men will always be found silly enough to fit their heads with a fool’s-cap. If, therefore, conscience-stricken, some individuals (a thing I doubt not) should perceive a stray likeness in my outlines, my labours will not all be lost as by holding up the truest of looking glasses—satire—they may learn to correct those blemishes which even self can see.’ Narrative proper ends on vol. 3, p. 274, and is followed by ‘Notes on Naval Reform’, pp. [275]–298. List (2 pp. unn.) of ‘New Works of Fiction by Distinguished Writers, just Published by Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley’ at end of vol. 3. Printer’s marks (on verso facing t.p.) in all 3 vols. and colophons of vols. 1 and 2 read: ‘London: Henry Baylis, Johnson’s-Court, Fleet-Street’; colophon of vol. 3, however, reads: ‘London: Ibotson and Palmer, Printers, Savoy Street, Strand’. BP notes: ‘For some special reason the anonymity of this work was preserved for a great number of years with exceptional strictness, and indeed the author’s name does not appear on the contract for publication, or even that of his proxy in full. Owing to this circumstance when nearly half a century later Lord Houghton made some enquiries in New Burlington Street as to the authorship of “Cavendish” without success, he went away under the impression that, owing no doubt to the responsible position of the unrevealed, or possibly royal, author, great importance was still attached to secrecy. […] These volumes, which are said to be founded on facts, contain a vigorous exposé of Naval abuses. […] From a quotation made by the Author, it seems probable that one reason for the strict anonymity of the work was the fact of its publication at an early period in his career. […] A “Remainder” of 386 copies of this work was sold to Messrs. Cochrane and Macrone, April 26, 1833.’

Notes. Preface, pp. [v]–viii, describes the work as a development from her earlier lessons to young people: ‘the authoress has attempted, in numerous instances, to clothe the most serious and important lessons in such various and alluring attire as she thought best calculated to captivate the attention of the young and the thoughtless […] Proceeding on a more extended scale, she has at length been induced to imagine such a narrative as might, in its progress, give her an opportunity of shewing how a Christian ought to act in the various situations of brother, husband, father, servant, master—of exemplifying the most beautiful forms of the female character under various and trying circumstances,—and of exhibiting a specimen of that most rare, and perhaps least understood of human characters,—the exalted, the disinterested, the warm and tender friend’ (pp. [v]–vi). Though targeted at least partly towards young people, the work is centred on an adult protagonist and is in the form of a standard novel.

It later enlists as a support ‘the prevailing taste of the day—a taste which naturally springs from the very spirit of the age, and which looks eagerly for fact even in fiction, and is gratified in proportion as a scene, an event, or a character, bears nearest to the interest, prejudices, and state of present society’ (p. iv).

Corvey; CME 3-628-47411-6; NSTC 2D8689 (BI BL, C; NA MH); xOCLC.
Notes. Preface, pp. [v]–xviii, responds to criticisms levelled against religious fiction, while conceding that the defence might not serve fully in the case of the present tales: ‘A desire to render some feeble testimony to a class of literature, conscientiously believed by the writer to be of useful tendency, has alone elicited observations calculated, in many respects, to condemn rather than to serve the work which succeeds them. “The Democrat”. and “The Hugonot”, were written some years ago; and perhaps, had they been more recent productions, might have appeared in a different form’ (p. xvii). ‘The Democrat’ runs to vol. 2, p. 114, and is followed by ‘Notes’, pp. [115]–129; ‘The Hugonot’, from vol. 2, p. [131] to vol. 3, p. 327, followed by ‘Notes’, pp. [328]–335. ‘Advertisement’ to the tale of ‘The Hugonot’ is found on p. [132] in vol. 2.

Notes. Half-titles read ‘Wilding’. Preface, pp. [v]–xv, (perhaps fancifully) refers to an original co-authorship, involving a friend, with Richardson, Fielding, Le Sage, Cervantes, Scott, William Godwin, and Bulwer Lytton’s Pelham being named as the authors’ models: the deleterious effect of Godwin’s stylistic influence on the friend had led to its initial abandonment. The same preface concludes with a Swiftian dedication to ‘Prince Posterity’. Colophons of T. C. Hansard, Paternoster Row.

D LO 502; xNSTC; xOCLC.
Notes. Preface, pp. [i]–ii, signed ‘The Author, Trinity College, June 1832’. This is addressed to Lady Morgan (unknown to the author), and expresses admiration of Morgan’s talent, especially her ‘recording of Irish grievances and observations on events resulting from absentee landlords’. The work originated from ‘an idea inspired by her “Absenteeism” in which she notes the “wild legend” surrounding the death of O’Ruarc, Prince of Breffini’. The author’s motives for writing are explained: ‘to attract attention, particularly of young people towards the history of their own country’, patriotic curiosity, and the ‘desolating effects of absenteeism on the country’. Collates in fours.

This notes: ‘The chief object of the Author of the following pages has been to exhibit the Evidences of Christianity as they must have appeared to a Jew, in our Saviour’s days […] The introduction of these points into a story seemed more likely to attract the reader, than if they had been barely exhibited to his view through the medium of an argumentative treatise’ (p. [iii]).

Notes. BP states: ‘The author was Thomas James Arnold, of Lincoln’s Inn.’ Each story has its own t.p.. Prefatory letter to ‘Alberic the Goddess’, vol. 2, p. [33], signed ‘The Author’, and addressed to ‘Gentle Ladies’, notes: ‘If, as is indeed certain, you shall find the events recorded in the following tale, to be too horrible and seemingly too unnatural, for the belief of your soft breasts, I feel bound, in justice to my humble self, to assure you, that they are not the issue of mine own imagination, […] but that they are truly related from the narrative of one who lived in the times, when they happened, namely in the year 1343.’ The work as a whole consists of: ‘Godwin and Goda’, vols. 1 and 2 (up to p. 30). The rest of vol. 2 contains: ‘Alberic the Godless’, pp. [31]–88; ‘Leonessa’, pp. [89]–253; ‘The Shadow’, pp. [255]–284; ‘The Impostor’, pp. [285]–323.

Printer’s marks and colophons of G. Schulze, 13, Poland Street. BP notes: ‘The scenes and seasons in which the characters of these stories play a part are very various—Anglo-Saxon England, Italy and Germany in the seventeenth century, and in the case of the two last sketches, ordinary society. Some of the stories appear to have historical foundations. “Alberic” is said to be founded on an old chronicle of the year 1343, and “Life and Death” on a fact recorded in a French work, “Causes Célèbres.” ’ LG lists as ‘Arnold’s Dramatic Sketches’.

Preface, pp. [v]–viii, addresses the novel’s subscribers: ‘To those most illustrious personages, whose royal names gild my list, I beg leave to express with the most grateful feeling, the high sense I entertain of the benevolence, that induced them so graciously, to grant my request. The most noble on my list, and another lady of the highest respectability—claim next my thanks, and everlastingly, for those favours, which a truly Christian feeling induced them repeatedly to bestow’ (pp. [v]–vi). It also refers to ‘the pain of body and mind, I more or less endured, for the last two years, in endeavouring to raise the necessary number of subscribers’, and offers the 1st vol. to those already secured, with the hope that ‘they may graciously exert their influence to procure me subscribers, to enable me to print the whole’ (pp. vii–viii). No subscription list found in the Corvey copy, nor in the BL copy (N. 942, 943).

Notes. Preface, pp. [i]–xi, notes: ‘some portion of my work has, in another form, already been published, and now appears with some of the scenes of a Sailor’s Life enlarged […]. Every scene is a scene of real life, not exaggerated’ (p. [i]). Reference is also made to fellow sailor-writers: ‘The gates of knowledge throughout the whole world are opened to us; but, I grieve to say, we slumber at the portals, or have hardly energy to enter. Some there are, and happy am I to bear witness to their talents—such are Parry, Franklin, Hall, Marryat, Glascock, Beaver, Beaufort, &c.—these men have exalted our profession, and stamp the lie upon the assertion , “that sailors are fools” ’ (p. vi). The preface concludes by pre-empting claims that the work derives from ‘the admirable Autobiography of Captain Basil Hall’: ‘The first number of the Metropolitan Magazine, which began in May, 1831, had the first chapter of this work in its pages. Captain Hall’s work did not appear until two months afterwards’ (p. xi). The work as a whole often reads like personal memoirs, though including fictional components such as dialogue; it also later became part of the Standard Novels series. Printer’s marks and colophons of A. J. Valpy, Red Lion Court, Fleet Street. Bentley MS list records print run of 750 copies. Originally adv. in Star (17 Mar 1832), as ‘in the press’.

One of the sailors more in advance, stumbled over what on examination proved to be a coffer of Irish black oak, curiously carved. Having brought it into the court, the Catholic clergyman belonging to the island happened to come up as we were examining the contents, which proved to be several rolls of parchment, closely written upon in the Spanish language. // The priest here offered his services to translate the manuscripts’ (pp. iii–iv). ‘Notes’ occupy pp. [291]–296 in vol. 1, pp [271]–282 in vol. 2, and pp. [258]–260 in vol. 3.

The works of Scott in particular are deemed to have ‘done more good than perhaps any British author since Milton’s times’ (p. iv). Henry concludes by stating that: ‘In speaking of French Royalism, I have not wished or meant to confound the heroism of the valiant Vendeans and the officers of the brave national army, with those fanatics who plundered the protestants in the reaction of 1815’ (p. vi).

Notes. Block notes: ‘Dr. A. Mitchell describes an earlier issue: “Sir Ralph Esher; or, Memoirs of the Court of Charles II. 3 vols., 1830.” ’ Sadleir (Item 1245) states that this was prepared in 1830 but not actually published until 1832, although a few copies with the older date may have strayed into the marketplace, and that vol. 2 of his own copy carries advs. for works published in 1830. ‘Introductory Letter of the Author’ in vol. 1, pp. [1]–3, effectively part of the narrative proper. Drop-head title on p. 33 reads: ‘Memoirs of Sir Ralph Esher’. Adv. list (2 pp.) at end of vol. 2 of ‘Interesting New Works just Published by Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley’. Colophons of C. and W. Reynell, Broad Street, Golden Square. BP quotes Hunt’s Autobiography (1860): ‘ “Sir Ralph Esher” was a fictitious autobiography. The opening of the court scenes were suggested by the locality of Epson, to which place we had removed. […] It was given to the world anonymously, and notwithstanding my wishes to the contrary, as a novel; but the publisher pleaded hard for the desirableness of so doing; and as he was a good-natured man, and had liberally enabled me to come from Italy, I could not say nay. It is not destitute of adventure, and I took a world of pains to make it true to the times which it pictured; but whatever interest it may possess is so entirely owing, I conceive, to a certain reflecting exhibition of character, and to facsimile imitations of the courts of Charles and Cromwell, that I can never present it to my mind in any other light than that of a veritable set of memoirs. // The reader may judge of the circumstances under which authors sometimes write, when I tell him that the publisher had entered into no regular agreement respecting this work; that he could decline receiving any more of it whenever it might please him to do so; that I had nothing else at the time to depend on for my family; that I was in very bad health, never writing a page that did not put my nerves into a state of excessive sensibility, starting at every sound; and that whenever I sent the copy up to London for payment, which I did every Saturday, I always expected, till I got a good way into the work, that he would send me word he had had enough.’

Preface, pp. [v]–vi, notes: ‘It has been frequently remarked concerning the class of periodicals of which the volume now submitted to the public is the youngest, that they present too uniform a resemblance to each other, and that, while increasing in number, their object and plan make no corresponding advances toward originality. […] Impressed with the belief that the taste for the wild and wonderful will endure as long as man retains the faculty of imagination, we have selected from the varied walks of literature the fairy track of Romance. On that enchanted path we purpose rambling from year to year […] In this introductory effort, the wish to give all the effect in our power to the graphic designs of Mr. Prout, has induced us to draw upon the resources of natives of the countries that supply the scenes illustrated. […] A proportion of the tales is entirely original, and was furnished for the work by an accomplished foreigner.’ This is followed by a list of contents (p. vii) and ‘List of Plates, Engraved under the Superintendence of Mr. E. I. Roberts’ (p. ix) for the 13 plates in the work. Contains: ‘The Fanatic. A Tale of the Netherlands.

Notes. BP notes that this is a ‘collection of sketches of American life, compiled by William [sic] Athearn Jones. […] From the contents of the papers referring to this work, it would appear that Miss Mitford’s connection with it was a nominal one’. The reference to William Athearn Jones is almost certainly erroneous, and should read James Athearn Jones, who was the author of various works connected to North America. Preface, pp. [iii]–vi, signed ‘Mary Russell Mitford’ and dated ‘Three Mile Cross, May, 1832’. This refers to the work as ‘another Collection of Native American Sketches’ edited by Mitford (p. [iii]) and notes: ‘the Stories came to me scattered over the Miscellaneous Collections of many years, some of them in MS. transcripts from books out of print or otherwise rare, and all or nearly all either wholly anonymous or distinguished by signatures evidently fictitious. Even in the list of Authors prefixed to my former Work, although I had taken much pains to be correct, I have discovered at least two errors of omission; the name of Mr. Sands […] and of Mr. Bryant, the great poet of America. […]. Of the Writers in the present Selection I am still more uncertain, though I believe them generally the same with the former. “The Young Backwoodsman” is, I am informed, the production of the Rev. Mr. Flint; “The Green Mountain Boy” bears the signature of Mr. Barker; “Modern Chivalry” assuredly belongs to my friend Miss Sedgwick; and I suspect Mr. Paulding’s keen and clever pen in “The Politician” and “The Azure Hose” ’ (pp. iv–v). Lists of contents (1 p. unn. each) precedes main text in each vol. Vol. 1 comprises: ‘The Politician’, pp. [1]–85; ‘Elizabeth Latimer’, pp. [86]–125; ‘The Squatter’, pp. [126]–225; ‘Pinchon’, pp. [226]–271; ‘The Devil’s Pulpit.

Notes. Erroneously attributed to Caroline Anne Bowles (afterwards Southey). Amelia Gillespie Smyth acknowledges her authorship of Selwyn in Search of a Daughter (originally serialized in Blackwood’s Magazine in 1827; see 1835: 93) in a letter to Sir Walter Scott, of 14 Aug 1827 (National Library of Scotland, MS 3904, ff. 230–1). The issue is outlined more fully by Sharon Ragaz in ‘Authorship in the Early Nineteenth Century: Evidence from the Scott Letter-Books’ (unpublished paper delivered to the Toronto Bibliographical Group, 2000). ‘Introduction’, pp. [iii]–iv, notes: ‘If it be asked why, amid a redundance of fictions of the most splendid and spirit-stirring description, the following pages were written, criticism may be disarmed by the reply of affection, that they were written, because every effort of memory, however, superfluous, and every touch of the pencil, however feeble, which recalled their delightful subject, was a source of gratification’ (p. [iii]). ‘Probation’ occupies pp. [1]–392, and is followed by ‘The Voiturer’s Daughter’, pp. [393]–455, and ‘The Deserter of Castel Gandolfo’, pp. [457]–473. Printer’s mark (verso of t.p.) reads: ‘Edinburgh: Printed by A. Balfour and Co. Niddry Street.’

Notes. Verso facing t.p. in each vol. notes: ‘Originally Published in Blackwood’s Magazine’. The full series ran in Blackwood’s from no. 28 (Aug 1830) to no. 42 (Aug 1837), with breaks; and the work was first published in book form in a pirated selection, New York 1831, as Affecting Scenes: Being Passages from the Diary of a Physician (OCLC). ‘Notice to the Reader’, pp. [v]–vi (in present edn.), dated ‘London, February 3, 1832’. In this, ‘the Editor’ looks for a favourable reception of the work in its present republished form: ‘He was led to indulge such hopes, by seeing the flattering terms in which this Diary was mentioned, from time to time, by many respectable journals in London and elsewhere, during its successive appearance in Blackwood’s Magazine; by the circumstances of its translation into the French language at Paris; and by its republication separately in America, where the sale has been so extensive, that the work is now stereotyped’ (p. [v]). This ‘Notice’ adds: ‘Much new matter , however, will be found introduced in the notes, and the whole has been very carefully revised—although some errors have crept in after all, owing chiefly to the work’s being printed in Edinburgh, while the Editor resided in London’ (p. vi). ‘Contents of Volume First’ occupies pp. [vii]–viii in vol. 1, followed by Introduction, pp. [ix]–xii. ‘Contents of Volume Second’ (1 p. unn.) precedes main text in vol. 2. Running titles vary according to chapter headings. Printer’s marks and colophons of Andrew Shortreed, Thistle Lane, Edinburgh. ER and LG list as ‘Diary of a Physician’. A 3rd vol. was published in 1838, and incorporated in later edns.

Corvey; NSTC 2B6668 (BI BL, C, O; NA DLC); OCLC 21014495 (11 libs).
Notes. DNB attributes to Michael alone. Series-t.p. precedes t.p. proper, and reads: ‘The Library of Romance. Edited by Leitch Ritchie. Vol. I. The Ghost-Hunter and his Family. By the O’Hara Family. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 65, Cornhill. 1833’. Preface to the Series, pp. [iii]–xii, precedes the story of ‘The Ghost-Hunter and his Family’. This states: ‘It is some years since the Editor of this work conceived the idea of publishing a series of original works of fiction, at little more than a fourth part of the usual price. At that time the business of novel-publishing touched upon its zenith’ (p. [v]). It continues later: ‘The Editor would willingly indulge himself in tracing the causes of decline and fall of this system […] were it not irrelevant to his present purpose. All he has now to do is to exhibit the nature of his own plan […] The price given will be regulated in the first place, by merit of the work, and in the second place, by the popularity of its writer; and the sum agreed upon will be paid in bank notes immediately on the assignment of the copyright. // Each volume will be fairly brought before the public. No expense will be spared’ (pp. vii–viii). As a result, the editor anticipates a changed fiction industry: ‘One effect of the plan will be to diminish the number of novels; for it is manifest, that no work which is not presumed to be calculated for extensive circulation, will be published at such a price. This will be a benefit even to the book-sellers themselves […] for the great majority of existing novels is formed of unsuccessful ones’ (p. ix). According to the same preface, the series will include: original novels by well-known and unknown authors; translations of novels in foreign languages; adaptations of works in foreign languages; reprints and adaptations of American novels. ‘Advertisement’ (1 p. unn.) follows half-title of ‘The Ghost-Hunter and his Family’. Adv. (1 p. unn.) following main text features vol. 2 of ‘The Library of Romance’: ‘Schinderhannes’ by Leitch Ritchie. Printer’s mark and colophon of Bradbury and Evans, Bouverie Street’. LG lists as ‘Library of Romance, edited by Leitch Ritichie, Vol. I. 6s cloth’.

Notes. Dedication to ‘the Baroness J. de Rothschild’, p. [v], is followed by the Preface, pp. [vii]–xii, dated ‘Paris, May 1833’. This notes that ‘an attempt has been made to produce a narrative, founded principally on fact; but connected by a few fictitious adventures […]. The purpose of this tale being to elucidate history; not to delineate weakness or eccentricity, which are the more special objects of a novel’ (p. viii). ‘Errata’ (1 p. unn.) to vol. 3 appear at the end of the vol. after p. 242. Printer’s marks on versos of t.ps. read ‘Imprimerie Selligue, 131, rue Montmartre.’ This edn. is bibliographically identical to a Paris 1833 edn. published by A. and W. Galignani, almost certainly replacing with a cancel t.p. the original French publisher’s imprint with that of Smith, Elder, and Co. The Galignani copy is held in Corvey (CME 3-628-47141-9).

Notes. According to Blanck, the edn. forming the present entry is made up from sheets of the original US edn., with a cancel t.p. inserted. ‘Advertisement’, pp. [5]–6, signed ‘The Publishers’, describes the process of selection and publication of the tales. ‘Introduction. To the Misters Harpers, at their Store in New-York City. Glauber-Spa, July —’, pp. [7]–19, signed ‘Sharon Clapp’, fictitiously relates the origin of the tales. Lists of contents occupy p. [21] in vol. 1 and p. [3] in vol. 2. Vol. 1 comprises: Catharine Maria Sedgwick, ‘Le Bossu’, pp. [23]–108; James Kirke Paulding, ‘Childe Roeliff’s Pilgrimage’, pp. [109]–189; William Cullen Bryant, ‘The Skeleton’s Cave’ , pp. [191]–239; Anon., ‘Medfield’, pp. [241]–276. Vol. 2 contains: William Leggett, ‘The Block House. A Western Story’, pp. [7]–101; R. C. Sands, ‘Mr. Green’, pp. 103–152; James Kirke Paulding, ‘Selim’, pp. [153]–220; R. C. Sands, ‘Boyuca’, pp. [221]–263. Advs. (2 pp. unn.) precede t.p. in vol. 1. Originally published New York 1832 (NSTC, OCLC). LG gives: ‘Harper’s Library of Select American Novels: Vols. I and II. Tales of Glauber Spa; Vols. III and IV. Westward Ho, 12mo. 6s. each, cloth’. Existing sources do not clarify whether this ‘6s each’ pricing refers to the individual titles or volumes; however, see notes to Westward Ho! (1833: 55[b]) for additional information on pricing. ECB 525 lists under ‘Sedgwick, (Catherine M.)’. All the tales in this compilation, excepting ‘Boyuca’, were published again as Childe Roeliff’s Pilgrimage, and Other Tales (1834: 4).

This claims that the ‘Tale is woven from real events; and he who gives it to the world has undertaken rather the task of a compiler, than that of the author’ (p. [iii]). It adds: ‘Should any of the idlers who have leisure to waste on trifles, attempt to pry into so unimportant a secret as the name of the individual whose humble task it has been from a Memoir to construct a Romance, their ingenuity will be exercised in vain:—that secret […] he trusts and believes that he shall carry to a grave, which (amidst a sea of infirmities and care) smiles upon him, near and welcome—the Haven of Repose’ (p. iv). Vols. 1 and 3 have printer’s marks and colophons of Samuel Bentley, Dorset Street, Fleet Street: vol. 2 has printer’s mark and colophon of Ibotson and Palmer, Savoy Street, Strand.

The latter notes: ‘With respect to the contents of this Second Series, the Author has only to observe, that the volumes constituting the First Series had an excellent sale, considering that they were of Irish manufacture. They are now getting into a third edition, and much of their success may probably be ascribed to the fact of their never having been puffed; for no man excites more notice than he who runs counter to the fashion’ (p. [v]). It also states: ‘when this work was nearly ready for publication, a calamitous fire reduced the printer’s establishment to ashes. The “Traits and Stories” unhappily shared the same fate: the first edition went off brilliantly in the course of one night. Had the book appeared as it was then printed, it would have rivalled any thing coming from the first houses of London. It was again put through the press in a hurry, and under circumstances highly disadvantageous; and yet its typographical execution is certainly creditable to the country’ (pp. vii–viii).

Notes. ‘Note by the Publishers’, p. [iii], dated ‘8, East Clyde Street, November, 1832’, reads: ‘It was the original intention of the Publishers to have issued the Tales of the Manse in a complete form, consisting of three volumes; but, on consideration, they have rather chosen to publish the volumes separately, and at intervals—a system more in accordance with their usual method of publication, and perhaps more convenient to readers in general. Each volume will be, however, complete in itself, and only connected with the others by the general title and introduction. The second series will appear next season, and will consist of a modern tale, entitled, The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Charles Cranston.’ ‘Proem by Hugh Hay, Esquire, Grassmarket, Edinburgh’, pp. [v]–xxx, signed ‘Hugh Hay’ and dated ‘Grassmarket, Edinburgh, Nov. 1824 [sic]’. ‘The Author’s Introduction’ occupies pp. [xxxi]–lxix and functions as a fictitious frame narrative. Running title reads ‘Saint Kentingern’. Printer’s mark reads: ‘Glasgow: Printed by Edward Khull, 65, Virginia Street’, with similar colophon. No further ser. discovered.

Notes. Preface, pp. [v]–vi, dated ‘London, November, 1833’. This notes: ‘It seems as if, without a word or two of explanation, the reader would be puzzled, and perhaps disappointed, when he opened this volume, to find two stories instead of one, neither of them bearing the title which has been given to both united. […] The truth is, that the author was requested to write two stories; and one being illustrative of LOVE and the other of PRIDE, it was considered better to use the one generic title for both than the names of the two stories separately’ (pp. [v]–vi). The work consists of: ‘The Widow’, vols. 1 and 2 (up to p. 63) and ‘Snowdon’, vols. 2 (from p. [65]) and 3. List of ‘Works just Published by Whittaker and Co.

Notes. Trans. of Bug-Jargal (Paris, 1826), itself based on a 47-page tale written by Hugo in 1818, and published in 1819 in Le Conservateur littéraire, a periodical founded by Hugo and his brother in that year; in 1825, Hugo rewrote the piece as a novella, before revising and enlarging it into its final novel-form in 1826. Series-t.p. precedes t.p. proper, and reads: ‘The Library of Romance. Edited by Leitch Ritchie. Vol. VI. The Slave-King. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 65, Cornhill. 1833’. ‘Advertisement’, pp. [iii]–iv, notes: ‘We have now arrived at the sixth volume of the Library of Romance, which completes the first half-year; and we think the period a favourable one for introducing an alteration in the arrangement of the publication, which suggested itself to us some months ago, but which then, we feared, might have had an appearance of timidity and mistrust. […] There can be no harm in publishing a Magazine every month; because, in the nature of things, the interest of a magazine is ephemeral […]. The Library of Romance is very differently situated. […] we have determined upon publishing the Library of Romance, not as hitherto, on the first day of every month, but on the first day every second month’ (pp. [iii]–iv). According to Preface, pp. [vii]–viii, the ‘greater part of the notes, and the historical sketch at the end’ are not by Victor Hugo but by ‘a friend who has lately travelled in St. Domingo’ (p. viii). The work consists of: ‘The Slave-King’, pp. [1]–275, and ‘Saint Domingo’, pp. [277]–319. Adv (1 p. unn.) at end of vol. for ‘Volume VII.’ of the series: ‘A Tale of the Caravanserai’.

A more thorough insight into French manners and customs may be acquired from one of De Kock’s novels, than from fifty volumes of travels […] As a novelist De Kock may not possess the humour of Fielding or a Smollett, though the reader will meet many scenes not unworthy of those authors; whilst he will be constantly reminded throughout of the quiet humour and happy keeping of character for which Miss Austen stands unrivalled!’ (p. iv).

Notes. Preface, pp. [iii]–v, notes: ‘the Editor of the “Encyclopædia of Romance” feels it his duty to furnish his readers with the objects he has had in view in the present undertaking. He has long entertained the idea of presenting the public with a series of Tales and Romances, both original and translated, at a price which might place them within the reach of the humblest, as well as the highest classes of society. // Encouraged by the flattering reception already accorded to another publication (“The Ladies’ Cabinet”) emanating from the same source, he has spared neither pains nor expense in overcoming the difficulties he has had to encounter in the completion of his design.—The present publication is the result of those efforts.—“The Encyclopædia of Romance” will be continued in Monthly Numbers, containing 144 pages of letter-press. […] translations shall be confined exclusively to such tales as have never appeared before in an English dress, with abridgement of such of the larger and more expensive foreign novels as we think may suit the taste of the English reader. He will thus be put in possession of a collection of the best specimens of works of fiction that every European language can supply, in a form greatly cheaper than the cheapest, and quite as good as any that have been published in a more expensive shape.’ Vol. 1 contains: ‘St. Sylvester’s Night’, pp. [3]–40; ‘The Abbey of Maubuisson’, pp. 40–54; ‘Omar and Susana; or, the Apothecary of Ispahan’, pp. 54–122; ‘The Adventures of a Gentleman of Champaigne, at Paris, in the Year 1833’, pp. 123–137; ‘The Tales of the Twelve Soobahs of Indostan’, pp. 138–253; ‘Generosa’, pp. 253–284. Vol. 2 consists of ‘The Captive. A Tale of Modern Times’, pp. [3]–219; ‘Pelagius’, pp. 220–264; ‘Boyucci’, pp. 265–288. Vol. 3 comprises James Kirke Paulding’s ‘Westward Ho!’. Westward Ho! was also published separately in 1833, in 2 vols. (see 1833: 55[b] for further details). This item is included because of its incorporation of a substantial amount of contemporary fiction not published elsewhere in Britain and Ireland. Printer’s marks and colophons of W. M‘Dowall, Pemberton Row, Gough Square.

Notes. ‘Advertisement’ (2 pp. unn.) notes that ‘The author of “Carwell,” when that tale was first published, was blamed by some for having claimed attention to distresses too mean for sympathy, and characters too degraded for compassion. […] this reproach, combined with the assurance of friends and publishers, that it required more aristocratic affliction to interest the novel reading public, has induced her to attempt a story in the style at present considered the most popular. […] Oonagh Lynch is of a different and more romantic description. The preference shown to either of these stories, will decide the caste of any future fiction attempted by the same writer, should she again appear before the public.’ ‘Aims and Ends’ runs to vol. 2 (p. 203), followed by a verse piece titled ‘Oonagh Lynch’ (p. [205]) preceding the prose tale of the same title, which occupies vols. 2 (from p. [207]) and 3. Vols. 1 and 3 have advs. (1 p. unn. each) verso facing t.p. In vol. 1 a quotation from Rochefoucauld precedes main text. Printer’s marks and colophons of S. Bentley, Dorset Street.

Notes. Frontispiece illustrates a scene from the second tale, ‘Ellen Eskdale’. List of contents, p. [iii], follows t.p.. ‘An Apology for Fiction’, pp. [v]–xii, begins: ‘To write a book which is intendent, and calculated, solely for the readers of fiction and prefix to it an apology addressed to the non-readers of fiction, appears somewhat paradoxical; yet as a member of a religious society, whose sentiments are openly and professedly at variance with works of this description, I would not willingly oppose the peculiarities of many whom I regard with gratitude, esteem, and admiration, without offering in my own vindication some remarks upon the nature of fiction in general. […] when a writer keeps steadily in view the development of moral truth, when his characters are all of our “mixed essence,” drawn from the scenes of every-day life, animated with our feelings, weak with our frailties, led into our difficulties, surrounded by our temptations, and altogether involved in a succession of the same causes and effects which influence our lives, his productions may be called fiction, but they cannot be false. To me they appear at least as lawful as those of the painter, and for this reason I have ventured to call my stories, Pictures of Private Life’ (pp. [v]–vi). The vol. contains: ‘The Hall and the Cottage’, pp. [1]–180; ‘Ellen Eskdale’, pp. [181]–224; ‘The Curate’s Widow’, pp. [224]–285; ‘Marriage as It May Be’, pp. [287]–348.

It also states: ‘The German reader will miss one excellent chapter and several passages from Goldenthal, but they were omitted because totally inapplicable to any district in Great Britain, while the chapter on the forest-lands was retained because there are still some English parishes which either have in reality, or claim from custom, certain forest rights; and though the Goldenthal school-master’s management may be inapplicable to our customs, it cannot be unintelligible’ (p. 7).

Attributed by Rolf Loeber and Magda Stouthamer-Loeber (‘Bibliography of Irish Fiction’ — work in progress) to ‘Mrs Frances Peck’, but no further information discovered to corroborate this attribution. Dedication to ‘the Man of all People!!! Daniel O’Connell, Esq. Member of Parliament, &c. &c. &c.’, pp. [iii]–iv, dated ‘Dublin, Sept. 1834’, and signed ‘Candida’. A list of contents occupies pp. [v]–ix, and is followed by a Preface, pp. [xi]–xii, which begins: ‘The following lucubrations are the result of close and anxious observation of the present times: and of a sincere desire, as far as in the author lies, to strip the counterfeit of its tinsel, remove the curtain that screens imperfection, and exhibit folly and vice to public scorn and reproach, in their own scarring deformity’ (p. [xi]). An ‘Introduction’ follows, on pp. [xiii]–xvi, and is succeeded by an address ‘to the British People’, pp. [xvii]–xviii, which states: ‘The following sheets are the production of one of your fellow-subjects, for the common benefit of all. That it emanates from the Emerald Isle, it is hoped, will not diminish its merits with you, for it advocates your rights and privileges, as much as those of the all-suffering Irish themselves’ (p. [xvii]). The vol. contains: ‘The Sojourner in Dublin’, pp. [1]–114; ‘The Modern Pharisees, of the City of Shim-Sham, in Ireland. A Serio-Comic Drama, Enacted in our Own Times’, pp. [115]–148; ‘Life in the Irish Militia’, pp. [149]–191; ‘A Visit to the Lakes of Killarney’, pp. [193]–210; ‘An Allegorical Tale’, pp. [211]–245; ‘ “A New Earth, a New Heaven.” A Fragment’, pp. [247]–255.

A list of ‘Errata’ appears at the bottom of p. 255. Colophon of Norman and Skeen, Maiden Lane, Covent Garden.

Notes. Introduction, pp. [v]–xii, signed ‘W. T. H.’. In this the author distances himself from the gothic device of the mysterious manuscript: ‘Unfortunately for me, it is rather passé to find mouldering MSS. in ponderous oaken chests. Even a supernatural roll of parchment, solemnly presented by a mysterious figure, clad in dazzlingly white raiment, would scarcely be tolerated at present. […] As, thanks to the revolutionary effects of the Waverley Novels and Political Economy, I am thus prohibited from poaching on the domains of Leadenhall Street, and, as moreover, I am by no means blessed with the organ of Imaginativeness, I think that my best chance of getting successfully through the difficult feat of an introductory chapter will spring from my telling the truth; a piece of author-craft which will, at least, have the charm of novelty to recommend it’ (pp. [v]–vi). He then proceeds to present the work as having derived from autobiographical papers left by one of his former school fellows. Printer’s mark and colophon of G. H. Davidson, New Bridge Street, Blackfriars.

Notes. Dedication, p. [v], to ‘Thomas Moore, Esq.’, signed ‘Samuel Lover’. ‘Notice’, pp. [vii]–viii, in which the author disavows authorship of ‘A Book, entitled “Popular Stories and Legends of the Peasantry of Ireland, with Illustrations, by Samuel Lover,” […] lately […] published in Dublin’. This adds: ‘Six illustrations for the volume were supplied by me, and those who are answerable for the work should have let the public distinctly understand that so far only was I concerned, and not have imputed to me, by a questionable use of my name, an authorship which I feel it necessary to disavow. // From the duplicity of this title, many have been induced to imagine that the work, to which it is prefixed, is my Second Series of Legends and Stories; and this very name, too, has been assumed, with a mere transposition, the book being entitled “Stories and Legends”, although there is not a single legend in its pages’ (p. viii). The work in question is probably Popular Tales and Legends of the Irish Peasantry. With Illustrations by S. Lover (see 1834: 17). An addendum to the same Notice reads: ‘The very great popularity with which Barny O’Reirdon, the Navigator, was favoured on its appearance in the Dublin University Magazine, has induced me to add it, along with Little Fairly, from the same quarter, to the following Collection of Tales, which, with these exceptions, I place, for the first time, before the Public, in hope of their continued indulgence’ (p. viii). In an ‘Address’ to the reader, pp. [ix]–x, the author notes that his ‘first exercise’ has already been promoted ‘to the rank of third edition’ (p. x). List of contents (1 p. unn.) precedes main text. The tales consist of: ‘Barny O’Reirdon, the Navigator’, pp. [1]–65; ‘The Burial of the Tithe’, pp. [67]–106; ‘The White Horse of the Peppers. A Legend of the Boyne’, pp. [107]–186; ‘The Curse of Kishogue’, pp. [187]–216; ‘The Fairy Finder’, pp. [217]–250; ‘The Leprechaun and the Genius’, pp. [251]–257, in verse; ‘The Spanish Boar and the Irish Bull.

Notes. Adv. facing t.p. of each vol. draws attention to another work by the same author, ‘Wortley Montague; or, the Confessed Wanderings of a Merry Philosopher’, as preparing for publication. Preface, pp. [vii]–viii, signed ‘William Johnson Neale’ and dated ‘34, Pall Mall, 1834’, notes: ‘This Work was originally composed with a view to sustaining it as anonymous. This design being now however abandoned […] it may be proper to inform the reader, that he can obtain a more full account of the various transactions alluded to in the singular paper left to Charles Arran (whose real name was Charles Hamilton) by his father. This account will be found in a volume written by the latter gentleman, and entitled “Transactions during the reign of Queen Anne” ’ (pp. [vii]–viii). ‘Statement and Correspondence Relative to Captain Marryat’ occupies pp. 377–403 in vol. 3. This is signed ‘William Johnson Neale, Author of Cavendish’ and is dated ‘November, 1834’. It consists of a correspondence, in which Neale accuses Marryat of having exposed his name to the public and of having severely attacked his work The Port Admiral (1833: 52) in the Metropolitan Magazine. In his report of the argument Neale notes that ‘being totally unable by the use of any terms to bring him [Captain Marryat] to the field, nothing remained for me but to place upon him such a mark of public opprobrium, as should effectually exclude him without the pale of gentlemanlike society. In resorting to corporeal conflict with an individual of twice my own personal weight and strength, and age, it could not be the gratification of angry feeling which I sought, but simply the discharge of a public duty […] This duty I performed then on the afternoon of Wednesday the fifth instant, in open day-light, in Trafalgar Square, Charing Cross. A correct statement of these circumstances appears in the Sunday Herald’ (pp. 397–398). The following pages (pp. 398–399) quotes extensively from the Sunday Herald: ‘Captain Marryat […] began to untie his cloak which Mr. Neale gave him full time to do, and, stepping into the road, placed himself in a position for the attack, which he evidently mediated […] Several blows now quickly passed between the combatants […] [when] two or three individuals rushed forward, but the only one who interfered was Mr. Neale’s brother […] who to this moment had contented himself with quietly looking on […] Mr. Neale at the same time made a violent effort, and Captain Marryat rolled over in the mud. Neale now sprang to his feet, as did also the gallant Captain, who was again advancing to the attack of his unarmed foe, who having lost his stick, caught up some of the rubbish […] and directed it at the Captain’s face […] “Both parties now called out for the police, but none arriving, Mr. Neale […] walked very deliberately away, and wished the gallant Captain ‘good morning’ ” ’. Printer’s marks and colophons of G. Woodfall, Angel Court, Skinner Street.

Spenser Crackenthorpe, Esq. of Grassdale Lodge, Chumberland’, signed ‘Daniel Richardson’ and dated ‘Baker-street, 24th April, 1834’. This work is attributed to William Pitt Scargill, in a letter, listing his works, to the Morning Chronicle, 26 July 1855 (RLF see 27: 839, Item 8), this opening up the possibility that ‘Daniel Richardson’ might be a pseudonym.

Notes. NSTC also lists this title under ‘Gathercole, Michael Augustus’, citing Dt as its source. It is likely that this is a mistake stemming from Gathercole’s authorship of Letters to a Dissenting Minister (1834), although it is perhaps significant that no mention is evidently made to Scargill’s authorship of this title in the record of the appeals made to the Royal Literary Fund by Scargill’s widow (RLF 27: 839).

It later adds: ‘I remember the amiable and talented Andrew Picken, in a conversation only a fortnight before his death, lamenting that he could discover neither traditions nor superstitions in this country; but he, too, had been toiling amongst our old chronicles, where such things do not, and, indeed, could hardly have been expected, to exist; the faith of the people is to be sought amongst the people’ (p. xii).

Notes. Wolff (Item 6869A) notes: ‘This novel is sometimes (e.g. by Block) mistakenly attributed to Thomas Noon Talfourd, because he too published a novel called The Castilian (in 1854).’ Introduction, pp. [v]–xxvi, summarizes history of the Peninsular War, and concludes: ‘compelled, as I was, to present a fictitious hero to serve the purposes of the fable, it is as well to know that I have endeavoured to embody in his career many of the deeds and adventures of the various guerillas’ (p. xxvi). Adv. list (4 pp.) in vol 2 of ‘New Works of Fiction by Distinguished Writers, just Published by Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street’. Printer’s marks and colophons of Baylis and Leighton, Johnson’s Court, Fleet Street. Bentley MS List records print run of 500 copies. BP notes: ‘The author, Don Telésforo de Trueba y Cosio, was born at Santander in 1805, and died in Paris in 1835. He was a member of the Cortes, and the author of many works in English of history, fiction, and plays.’

Notes. Possibly a trans. of Jurij Miloslavskij, ili Russkie v 1612 godu (Moscow, 1829), but at present this cannot be verified; the principal reference appears in the Cambridge History of Russian Literature (1989), which notes that Jurij Miloslavskij ‘is a lively tale of the Russo-Polish conflict from the Time of Troubles employing the usual Scottian formula of lovers separated by the fortunes of war against a colourful canvas of past events and historical figures’. List of contents appear in each vol. (vol. 1, pp. [iii]–iv; vols. 2–3, pp. [i]–ii). All 3 vols. supply additional notes, occupying pp. [285]–309, [267]–293, and [361]–378 respectively. The Preface, pp. [v]–xxiv, states: ‘A Manuscript Translation,—by a Russian Lady of high rank and her two amiable daughters,—of an Historical Novel, entitled “Youri Dmitrich Miloslawsky”, originally written by Michael Zakosken,—was, about two years since, sent from the City of Moscow to one of the Editors of the present work; accompanied by an urgent request that the same might be published in this country.—The Manuscript in question was Dedicated to our immortal Novelist and Poet, the late Sir Walter Scott, Baronet’ (p. [v]). The preface also supplies biographical details of Zakosken and an analysis of the text. Each vol. has announcement on verso of t.p., stating: ‘Speedily will be published, a New Work, by the Author of “Cavendish,” [i.e. William Johnson Neale]—“The Port-Admiral,” &c. In Three Vols. post 8vo.’. Vols. 1–3 have printer’s marks (versos of t.ps.) reading ‘Baylis and Leighton, Johnson’s-Court, Fleet-Street’, with identical colophons in vols. 2 and 3; vol. 1 has colophon reading ‘Henry Baylis, Johnson’s-Court, Fleet-Street’. The BL copy examined has a handwritten note on t.p., stating that the work was ‘written by Colin Mackenzie Esqr author of “The Clubs of London” &c.’ NSTC includes London 1833 edn. held in DLC, but not discovered in this form. Listed in Star as ‘from the pen of Michael Zagosken. Dedicated to Sir Walter Scott, Bart. Translated by a Russian Lady of Rank, and Edited by Captain Frederick Chamier, R.N.’

This also introduces ‘Knighthood’ (the last tale) as an attempt to depict the manners ‘of our provincial towns’, concluding that ‘should my sketch prove a failure, I can only wish that the pen of Miss Austen had been employed on it, since it is undoubtedly one that deserves to be illustrated’ (p. vii). ‘The English in India’ occupies vol. 1 and continues to vol. 2, p. 41.

MARSTON: A NOVEL, IN THREE VOLUMES. BY A LADY.

Star (19 Dec 1834); LG 935: 853 (20 Dec 1834); ER 60: 535 (Jan 1835); ECB 370 (Dec 1834).
ABu SB.82379.Sai(m); NSTC 2S1997 (BI BL, C, E, O); xOCLC.
Notes. ‘Advertisement’, pp. [i]–iv, notes: ‘Since the present work has been in the press, one, if not two novels, bearing titles similar to that of “Marston” have appeared; but, were there no other evidence, the difference of the story would at once prove that there has been no “conveying” in the case. Competition then need hardly be disclaimed; and it would have been madness, indeed, for a novice to enter the lists with a writer at once so elegant and profound as the author of “Darnley.” ’ The author is presumably referring here to G. P. R. James’s The Life and Adventures of John Marston Hall (1834: 39). The present novel has been attributed to Rosalia St. Clair (see e.g. BLPC, NSTC), but wrongly so; and indeed such a prefatory statement from the prolific hand of this pseudonymous writer would be disingenuous in the extreme. MC (9 Feb 1835) gives as ‘By Madame de St. Claire, née Rumbold’, and it could be that the attribition to Rosalia St. Clair stems from this; however, the attribution to ‘Madame de St. Claire’ can only remain tentative at present, as there is no substantiating evidence for this ascription elsewhere. The ABu copy is in blue paper wrappers, apparently original. Main narrative describes English characters in a European setting, with some passages of French and Italian. ‘Notes’ occupy vol. 1, pp. [299]–307; vol. 2, pp. [285]–292; vol. 3, pp. [283]–297. Printer’s marks and colophons of Thomas Hookham, Old Bond Street.

Preface, pp. [vii]–ix, states: ‘I am in the habit of thinking for myself; and although prejudice be clothed in the sacred vesture of antiquity, and sanctioned by general use, I deem it no sacrilege to strip and expose her when truth is the object: I have therefore been tempted to brave the odium populi, and to violate the rites of usage, having been long impressed with a sense of the advantages likely to result from a series of well-digested reflections upon the data furnished in the exercise of my professional duties: and some years have now passed since many of the observations, contained in the following sheets, were first comitted to paper—having laid them aside, on being anticipated in my design by the appearance of the “Extracts from the Diary of a Physician;” [i.e. 1832: 86] nor is it likely that I would ever again have resumed my intention of laying them before the Public, if my friends had not flattered me into a belief that my performance has still sufficient claims to originality, to entitle me to expect a share of public indulgence’ (pp. viii–ix). This is followed by a list of contents (1 p. unn.). The vol. contains: ‘The Curate’s Daughter; or, the Victim of Irish Anarchy and English Despotism’, pp. [1]–63; ‘The Casuist; or, Delineations and Observations of a Sentimentalist’, pp. [65]–193; ‘Mrs. Mackintosh, and Public Charities’, pp. [195]–212; ‘Elizabeth; or, the Fatal Bereavement’, pp. [213]–229; ‘The Death-bed; or, Child of Two Fathers’, pp. [231]–264; ‘Fanaticism and Miss P****; or, the Unique Christians Analyzed’, pp. [265]–341; ‘MDCCCXXII; or, the Reign of Terror’, pp. [343]–372.

Notes. Dedication (1 p. unn.) to ‘Alessandro Manzoni, as to the Genius of the Place, are dedicated these Fruits, gathered on the Soul of Italian Fiction’, dated ‘London, Dec. 1, 1835’. Prefatory notice, pp. [vii]–xiii, with same date, states: ‘I began this tale two years ago at Rome. On removing to Naples, I threw it aside for “The Last Days of Pompeii,” which required more than “Rienzi” the advantage of residence within reach of the scenes described. The fate of the Roman Tribune continued, however, to haunt and impress me, and, sometime after “Pompeii” was published, I renewed my earlier undertaking. I regarded the completion of these volumes, indeed, as a kind of duty;—for having had occasion to read the original authorities from which modern historians have drawn their accounts of the life of Rienzi, I was led to believe that a very remarkable man had been superficially judged, and a very important period crudely examined. And this belief was sufficiently strong to induce me at first to mediate a more serious work upon the life and times of Rienzi. Various reasons concurred against their project—and I renounced the Biography to commence the Fiction. I have still, however, adhered with a greater fidelity than is customary in Romance, to all the leading events of the public life of the Roman Tribune; and the Reader will perhaps find in these pages a more full and detailed account of the rise and fall of Rienzi, than in any English work of which I am aware. […] If I may use the word Epic in its most modest and unassuming acceptation, this Fiction, in short, though indulging in dramatic situation, belongs, as a whole, rather to the Epic than the Dramatic school’ (pp. [vii]–ix). Errata to vols. 2 and 3 pasted on last page of each respective vol. Narrative proper ends on vol. 3, p. 343, and is followed by ‘Notes to Book X’, pp. [345]–356. Verso facing t.p. lists 3 ‘works by the same Author. Published by Messrs Saunders and Otley’. In vol. 1 printer’s mark (verso of t.p.) and colophon read: ‘Saville, Printer, (late Harjette and Saville,) 107, St. Martin’s Lane’; vol. 2 has printer’s mark (verso of t.p.) of ‘E.

Notes. Dedication to ‘His Grace the Duke of Devonshire’, signed ‘The Author’. Preface, pp. [vii]–x, claims that the original title intended was ‘Our Market Town’, but that this was pre-empted by the publication of Our Town (1834: 8), and that the Belford of the present work is not based on an actual place; this is end-signed ‘Three Mile Cross, Feb. 25th, 1835’. List of contents in each vol. itemizing the constituent parts, which have headings such as ‘The Town’, ‘The Poulterer’, ‘Belford Races’, etc. Vol. 2 includes at the end a ‘Note’ to the last item there, ‘Flirtation Extraordinary’, which reads: ‘Whilst correcting the proof sheet of this paper, (January 18th, 1835) I see with some amusement, in that admirable literary Journal the Athenæum, an old French anecdote, which bears a considerable resemblance to the adventures of poor Miss Savage. How the coincidence can have occurred I have no means of divining;–unless, indeed, our wicked friend Mr. William Marshall may have happened to meet with the story of “Les trois Racans” ’ (p. 317). Printer’s marks and colophons of Samuel Bentley, Dorset Street, Fleet Street. Bentley MS List records print run of 1,000 copies. According to BP, the market town—the scene of the sketches—is Reading.

Notes. Dedication, p. [iii], reads: ‘To the Printers of Great Britain this genuine Portrait of an American Brother Typo is, with the most profound respect, most humbly dedicated, by a most unworthy member of the “Profession” ’. Preface, pp. [v]–viii, states: ‘The following Biographical Sketch is of American origin, and forms the Introduction to a Series of Tales, entitled, “Novelettes of a Traveller, or Odds and Ends from the Knapsack of Thomas Singularity, Journeyman Printer”. These tales were selected for publication by the fellow-apprentice and working companion of the writer’ (p. [v]).

Notes. Dedication ‘to the Viscountess Lady Milton’, p. [iii]. This is followed by a Preface, pp. [v]–viii, which implies female authorship, and notes: ‘With regard to the critical world, should her little work find its way there, she has nothing to say in extenuation of the sometimes imputed error of taking up the pen, nor in defence of the produce of her literary hours. The circumstance, however, that the present volume is her first offence, should it be so construed, as well as the nature of the compositions submitted to the public, should exempt her from great blame, if it does not from cavil. She is, however, quite aware, that when an author ventures to publish, he has no reason to consider himself harshly dealt with, when reminded, in a proper spirit, of his faults. The conference has been voluntarily sought, and, to a certain degree, the result ought to be patiently received. Although criticism is too often founded upon acrimony and party feeling; yet she cannot but hope, that in the present instance, as there is but little in the volume itself to merit and hostile attack, and nothing as regards herself to provoke one, she may escape the ordeal with the expression of that opinion which an impartial consideration of its pretentions ought honestly to draw forth’ (pp. vii–viii). Continuous roman and arabic pagination, although text proper begins after a gap on p. [13]. Contains: ‘First Love’, pp. [13]–57; ‘The Daughter’, pp. [59]–124; ‘The Broken Heart’, pp. [125]–171; ‘The Heiress’, pp. [173]–226; ‘Blanche Dacre’, pp. [227]–278; ‘Flirting’, pp. [279]–291.

O Pettingell.698; NSTC 2PER3535; OCLC 46658768 (1 lib).
Notes. Preface, dated ‘February, 11, 1836’. This refers to ‘the completion of the First Volume of our little Miscellany’, and is immediately followed by ‘Index’, these forming together two unn. pages immediately prior to the individual numbers, each of which are 8 pp. long. First number, described at head as ‘No 1, Vol I’, is dated alongside ‘Thursday, April 2, 1835’, with the price given as ‘One Penny’. Each weekly number (similarly priced) usually has a lurid illustration before the main printed text, and there is a large fictional component in the contents, with some stories continuing through several numbers. Copy seen lacks separate t.p. for vol. 2, which commences at no. 49, dated ‘Thursday, February 18, 1836’. This sequence ends with no. 91, dated ‘Thursday, December 8, 1836’, and at foot of last page ‘All published’ is written in hand. The Bodleian copy described here is bound in one volume, and lacks vol. 1, nos. 15 and 24, and vol. 2, nos. 65 and 73. Printed attributions at end of pieces (which include ‘T. P.’) indicate several authors and derivation from a variety of sources. Colophons in individual numbers read: ‘Printed and Published by G. Drake, 12, Houghton Street, Clare Market.’

Notes. Preface (3 pp. unn.) is followed by ‘Advertisement’ (1 p. unn.). The latter states: ‘It is but fair to inform the reader, that in the following pages the original idea of the young Surgeon’s character is taken from that of Henri Muller in M. Dumas’s excellent melo-drama, “Angèle” ’. In vols. 1 and 2 printer’s marks read: ‘Printed by J. Smith, rue Montmorency’. BL copy examined has Longmans’ publication details deleted by hand from imprint, and replaced with ‘F. Coghlan, 5 King William Street, Strand’. ECB also gives Coghlan as publisher. LG 998: 157 (5 Mar 1836) lists what is apparently the reissued edn. of 1836, at 21s (MC for 25 Feb 1836 also adv. the novel as to be published ‘in a few days’).
Further edns: reissued, with cancel t.p., 1836 (NSTC); revised, 1847 as The Parricide; or, the Youth’s Career in Crime; Philadelphia 1836 (OCLC); French trans., 1836.

Notes. Preface (1 p. unn.) notes: ‘To write, or to omit writing a preface, is at an Author’s option. Imitating the example of those who refrain from so doing, I shall compose none:—unless, indeed, that may be deemed a preface, which is merely designed as an apology for intrusion, and a prayer that indulgence may be shewn towards the many faults which I myself perceive in the work now offered to the Public, as well as to those which, though to me invisible, I nevertheless cannot but be aware exist in it, and will, I fear, be more apparent to the reader.’ Vol. 1 has colophon of J.

BL G.17995–98; NSTC 2S14499 (BI C, O); OCLC 20141894 (6 libs).
Notes. Preface, pp. [v]–vi, begins: ‘As the first Series of this work (entitled the Romance of Ancient History) has been mistaken in several instances for quite another book, The Romance of History, the author has judged it best, agreeably to the suggestion of his friends, to prefix the present title to this second Series. The plan observed in this part of the work is exactly the same as that pursued in the foregoing portion of it. Herodotus is still the historian from whom he makes his selections, and his scenes are still drawn from the second book of this writer, which contains the history of Egypt’ (p. [v]). This is followed by an ‘Introduction’, pp. [vii]–xi. The items comprise: ‘The Ovethrow of Tyranny’, pp. [1]–131; ‘Preliminary Note’ (p. [132]) to ‘The Retreat of Sabako’, which itself runs from p. [133] to the end of vol. 2. Signatures are labelled ‘Vol. I’ and ‘Vol. II’ respectively, but append the abbreviation ‘S.S.’, probably indicating ‘Second Series’. Printer’s marks and colophons of Gilbert and Rivington, St. John’s Square. BL copy examined is collected (but not bound) together with the 2 vols. of the 1st ser., The Romance of Ancient History. Egypt (1834: 68), and was the personal copy of Thomas Grenville, to whom the 1st ser. was dedicated. All four vols. are bound identically, with Grenville’s coat-of-arms and the legend ‘Rt. Honble. Thos. Grenville’ embossed in gilt on front cover.

Notes. Erroneously attributed to Caroline Anne Bowles (afterwards Southey). Amelia Gillespie Smyth acknowledges her authorship of this work (originally serialized in Blackwood’s Magazine in 1827) in a letter to Sir Walter Scott, of 14 Aug 1827 (National Library of Scotland, MS 3904, ff. 230–1). The issue is outlined more fully by Sharon Ragaz in ‘Authorship in the Early Nineteenth Century: Evidence from the Scott Letter-Books’ (unpublished paper delivered to the Toronto Bibliographical Group, 2000). Dedication, p. [iii], to ‘Mrs. S. C. Hall in Gratitude for the Pleasure Derived from the Perusal of her “Sketches of Irish Character” the Following Pages are with Sincerest Esteem Inscribed’. This is followed by a Preface, pp. [v]–vi, dated Jan 1835, which states that the pieces collected together were originally published in Blackwood’s and Fraser’s Magazines. Vol. 1 consists of ‘Selwyn in Search of a Daughter’. Vol. 2 contains ‘Tales of the Wedding’, comprising separate tales in the form of five chapters: ‘A Wedding at College’, pp. 10–38; ‘A Wedding in Hospital’, pp. 39–78; ‘A Wedding under Ground’, pp. 79–117; ‘A Wedding in Court’, p. 118–161; ‘A Wedding at School’, pp. 162–199. This sequence is followed by two chapters, with verso running titles reading ‘Recontres on the Road’ instead of ‘Tales of the Wedding’, and comprising two chapters: ‘The Resuscitated’, pp. 200–239, and ‘The Dead Alive’, pp. 240–289. Vol. 2 concludes with ‘Marriage Impromptu’, pp. 290–309 (with matching running titles). Vol. 3 contains ‘The Bachelor’s Beat’, which consists of separate tales in the form of seven chapters: ‘The First of September’, pp. [1]–54; ‘Emily Fortescue’, pp. 55–112; ‘A Day at the Sea-Side’, pp. 157–195; ‘The Bachelor’s Christmas’, pp. 196–237; ‘Saturday’, pp. 238–275; ‘April Fools’, pp. 276–313.

We can produce, however, good authority for our apparent disregard to the frontier line, which separates historical truths from the traditions of the legendary, or the fictions of the romancer.’ Printer’s marks and colophons of Stewart and Co., Old Bailey.

Preface, pp. [i]–iv, notes: ‘The Author of these volumes has, she trusts, entered upon untrodden ground, at least, no writer of later date, than that of the illustrious father of English poetry, Geoffrey Chaucer (the Sir Walter Scott of the thirteenth century) has founded a work of fiction on the plan of the ancient devotional pilgrimage […] Each of the votaries to the shrine of our Lady of Walsingham, in this work, like Chaucer’s Canterbury Pilgrims, is pledged to relate a tale. The present volumes contain those of Cardinal Wolsey, King Henry, the Abbot of Glastonbury, Queen Catherine, the Emperor Charles, and the Abbess of Ely. // Those of Mary of France, Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, Anna Boleyn, Sir Thomas Wyatt, &c. &c., are necessarily deferred till a Second Series of the Pilgrims of Walsingham.’ The narrative frame and each tale have their own t.ps., but also observe continuous chapter divisions. Vol. 1 contains: ‘Cardinal Wolsey’s Tale. The Saxon Widow’s Vow’, pp. [93]–167; ‘King Henry’s Tale. William Rufus and the Salmon-Pasty’, pp. [175]–215; ‘The Abbot’s Tale.

Notes. Preface, pp. [iii]–v, end-dated ‘London, June 26, 1835’. In this the authoress expresses diffidence in ‘sending forth to the world a tale which by its title gives promise of treating not only of history, but of Scottish history; an act of presumption of which she is anxious to clear herself;—and at the same time she wished to reassure those readers who may not like historical novels from a woman’s pen, that she has entered no farther into public affairs, than as they may have influence the fortunes and feelings of one admirable woman who forms the subject of the following memoir’ (p. [iii]). The preface ends by observing that ‘[f]or reasons which may be understood by her friends […] the tale of Blanche was written in the year 1832’. The constituent tales are: ‘Winifred, Countess of Nithsdale’, vol. 1, p. [1]–vol. 2, p. 157; ‘The Hampshire Cottage’, vol. 2, pp. [159]–336; and ‘Blanche’, which occupies vol. 3. Printer’s marks and colophons of Samuel Bentley, Dorset Street, Fleet Street. Bentley MS List records print run of 1,500 copies. BP notes: ‘ “Tales of the Peerage and Peasantry” was the subject of a parody by W. M. Thackeray in his Novels by Eminent Hands under the title of “Lords and Liveries,” by the author “Dukes and Dejeuners,” “Hearts and Diamonds,” “Marchionesses and Milliners,” etc.’ LG lists as ‘by the Author of the “Chaperon” ’ (see 1833: 73).

Its appearance excited considerable sensation in that country, from the circumstance of its author being a son-in-law of the justly celebrated Manzoni, which gave rise to an idea that the author of “I Promessi Sposi” might probably have had a hand in its composition. The Translator’s attention was first drawn to the book from seeing its publication announced in those terms by the “Foreign Quarterly Review.” It has since obtained popularity on the Continent and been translated into French.’ Printer’s mark and colophon of Richard Taylor, Red Lion Court, Fleet Street.

Preface (2 pp. unn.), dated ‘Saughtree, Liddesdale, March, 1835’, describes this work as ‘fictitious biography’, apologizing for the fact that the author is ‘not so much satisfied with the work himself’. This concludes: ‘On the whole, he [i.e. the author] certainly does entertain an opinion that it contains something of a redeeming character, and therefore submits it to the public, fearing little from censure, and hoping as little from praise.’ Colophon reads: ‘Newcastle: Printed at the Courant Office by J. Blackwell and Co.’.

Wolff (Item 4406) notes that the Advertisement in vol. 1 of the US edn. reads: ‘Peculiar circumstances having prevented the Editor of the following pages from revising the Work until it had finally gone to Press, he begs to state that he is perfectly aware of the inaccuracies which occur; and also to observe that the divisions into Chapters are entirely different from the author’s intentions. This will account for the apparent abruptness of many of the transitions. The Editor.’ Wolff adds: ‘My guess would be that he was so anxious to pirate a work popular in England before anybody else got a good text that he reprinted from serial publication and probably had to leave out some part that had not got to him. Only a detailed comparison with the first English edition, which I so far lack, would answer the question.’

Notes. Preface, p. [iii]–viii, notes: ‘It is the business of art, to combine the most striking features of nature, whether beautiful or sublime, in the character, situations, passions, and moral relations of man, as well as in the visible creation, and to paint those perfect combinations, which, though they may sometimes exist, escape the eye of superficial observation; and the noblest purpose of art, above the selfish and sordid interests of life, to prove them incompatible with true and perfect happiness, and to teach man, even by the means of his imagination, that there is reserved for him a higher existence, from whence the lights of religion, morality, and beauty gleam faintly into this; a virtue surpassing, in the holiness and purity of its attributes, that knowledge which is expediency. […] The novel is the style of fiction most in favour at the present day, and I am prejudiced by no undue partiality for my own pursuit when I consider it as a species of epic—equally subject to the same rules and capable of the same lofty purposes, as that elaborate form of composition’ (pp. [iii]–iv).

Notes. The stories originally appeared in Bell’s Life in London, Bell’s Weekly Magazine, The Carlton Chronicle, The Evening Chronicle, The Library of Fiction, The Monthly Magazine, and The Morning Chronicle, with the first of these (‘Mr. Minns and his Cousin’) being published in the Monthly Magazine for Dec 1833. Frontispiece in vol. 1 opposite t.p. depicts the ‘Election for Beadle’ (illustrating text at vol. 1, p. 47), while that of vol. 2 illustrates ‘Mr. Gabriel Parsons’s Courtship’ (vol. 2, p. 24): see below for details of vol. 3 frontispiece. Preface, pp. [iii]–v, dated ‘Furnival’s Inn, February, 1836’, notes: ‘Entertaining no inconsiderate feeling of trepidation at the idea of making so perilous a voyage in so frail a machine alone and unaccompanied, the author was naturally desirous to secure the assistance and companionship of some well-known individual, who had frequently contributed to the success, though his well-earned reputation rendered it impossible for him ever to have shared the hazard, of similar undertakings. To whom, as possessing this requisite in an eminent degree, could he apply but to GEORGE CRUIKSHANK? The application was readily heard and at once acceded to: this is their first voyage in company, but it may not be the last. // If any further excuse be wanting for adding this book to the hundreds which every season produces, the Author may be permitted to plead the very favourable reception, which several of the following sketches received on their original appearance in different periodicals’ (pp. [iii]–iv). Lists of contents precedes narratives proper in each vol. (vol. 1, pp. [vii]–viii; vol. 2, 1 p. unn.; vol. 3, pp. [vii]–viii). Vol. 3 was issued with an imprint date of 1837, and carried a variant t.p. which reads: ‘Sketches by Boz: Illustrative of Every-Day Life, and Every-Day People. The Second Series. Complete in One Volume.’ However, internal textual evidence points to the original conception of this ‘Second Series’ as the 3rd vol. of the work. This 3rd vol. has an additional engraved t.p. preceding the printed t.p., which reads: ‘Second Series Sketches by Boz / London / John Macrone. St. James’s Square / 1836.’ A frontispiece appears on the verso opposite the engraved t.p. and depicts ‘Vauxhall Gardens by Day’, referring to ‘Vol. III, p. 217’, rather than treating this 2nd ser. as separate; it also bears the legend ‘London, John Macrone, 1836’. Vol. 3 also contains a separate Preface, pp. [i]–iii, dated ‘Furnival’s Inn. December 17, 1836.’, which comments: ‘Some of these sketches were written before the appearance of the former series, and the remainder, have been added at different periods since that time. […] With these few words, [the author] gives a modest tap at the door of the public with his Christmas piece’ (pp. [i]–ii). Vol. 1 contains: ‘The Parish’, pp. [1]–78; ‘Miss Evans and the Eagle’, pp. [79]–87; ‘Shops, and their Tenants’, pp. [88]–96; ‘Thoughts about People’, pp. [97]–106; ‘A Visit to Newgate’, pp. [107]–135; ‘London Recreations’, pp. [136]–146; ‘The Boarding-House’, pp. [147]–223; ‘Hackney-Coach Stands’, pp. [224]–232; ‘Brokers’ and Marine-Store Shops’, pp. [233]–241; ‘The Bloomsbury Christening’, pp. [242]–275; ‘Gin-Shops’, pp. [276]–287; ‘Public Dinners’, pp. [288]–299; ‘Astley’s’, pp. [300]–313; ‘Greenwich Fair’, pp. [314]–330; ‘The Prisoners’ Van’, pp. [331]–337; ‘A Christmas Dinner’, pp. [338]–348.

Notes. Dedication to ‘the Right Honourable Thomas Frankland Lewis, of Harpton Court, Radnorshire’, pp. [v]–viii. This addresses (without noticeably answering) the issue of why Wales ‘should so long be neglected by dramatists and novelists, when Ireland and Scotland have been familiarised to the English reading public, by the highest genius’ (p. vi). The present work, however, represents ‘no addition to that somewhat hackneyed species, the “National Novel” ’, but rather attempts ‘to present certain portraitures of passions’ in the context of the ‘wild and dark legendary as well as national history’ of Wales (p. vii). This Dedication is signed by the author and dated ‘Builth, Brecknockshire, April 10, 1836’. ‘Preface with Some Remarks on our Present Imaginative Literature’, vol. 1, pp. [1]–46, helps set the framework for the main narrative, essentially a travelogue with reflections and embedded tales by different tellers, organized under headings from ‘First Day’ to ‘Tenth Day’. Printer’s marks and colophons of J. B. Nichols and Son, 23, Parliament Street. Bentley MS List records print run of 750 copies.

Notes. Dedication, p. [1], reads: ‘At the Author’s Dying Request, this Volume is Respectfully Inscribed to George Douglas, Esquire, Advocate, Sheriff of Kincardineshire, as a Sincere Tribute of his Respect and Esteem.’ This is followed by a ‘Note’, p. [3], dated ‘Dundee, October, 1835’, and signed ‘J. M. C.’. This states: ‘The Editor of this volume has to apologize to Mr. Grant’s subscribers for the great delay which has taken place in issuing it after the time specified in the prospectuses, but he trusts that when they consider the loss of time necessarily incident on the melancholy death of the author, and on the removal of the establishment at which it was printing from Dundee to Perth, that they will exculpate him from the charge of unnecessary procrastination. […] It was proposed by the original prospectuses of the volume—issued by Mr Grant—that it should consist entirely of Prose Tales, under the title of “Tales of the Glens.” This title has been retained; but, as Mr Grant did not live to complete the volume on the original plan, the Editor has introduced a selection from Mr Grant’s poetical pieces, as he deemed that it would be more pleasing to subscribers to have a specimen of Mr Grant’s abilities, both as a Prose Writer and a Poet, than to have the volume completed with Prose Sketches, before published, which was the alternative. Should a Second Edition be called for, the Editor will have it in his power to greatly enlarge and enrich it, from selections from Mr Grant’s manuscripts, which the prescribed limits of the present volume did not allow him to insert.’ A list of contents, pp. [5]–6, and a ‘Memoir of Joseph Grant’, pp. [7]–16, follow. A newly paginated sequence combining roman and arabic pagination, begins with a Preface, pp. [i]–iii, which notes: ‘I beg leave to hope, that, however little amusement or instruction the following Tales may contain, they are at least unmingled with aught that is likely to hurt the moral feelings, or outrage the taste of the most refined reader’ (p. iii). The tales consist of: ‘The Grocer’s Daughter’, pp. [5]–42; ‘Roy Mac Ian; or, the Hunter’s Cabin’, pp. [43]–54; ‘A Chapter on Diels and Kelpies’, pp. [55]–69; ‘The Warlock of Glendye’, pp. [71]–88; ‘Something Serious’, pp. [89]–96; ‘The Midnight Combat: A Chapter from the Autobiography of Lauchlin Grahame’, pp. [97]–115; ‘Sergeant Cameron’, pp. [117]–163; ‘Strickland, the Shadowless; or, the Fate of the Treasure Finder’, pp. [167]–198; ‘Cul-na-Gair; or, the Dumbie’s Malison’, pp. [199]–235; ‘The Bothie of Bith-Uaigh’, pp. [237]–248; ‘Ballads and Songs’, pp. [249]–265; ‘Malcolm Roy; a Dramatic Sketch’, pp. [267]–273; ‘Ballads and Songs’, pp. [274]–288.

Notes. Dedication ‘to my Dear and Honoured Father’, p. [v]. An untitled prefatory address, pp. [vii]–viii, notes: ‘It must be confessed, that the subject of the first of the succeeding Tales is sufficiently hackneyed, and has already been several times beautifully treated. More especially by Mr. Griffin in his admirable tale of “The Collegians;” by Lord Mulgrave, and by the elegant author of the “Tales of a Chaperon.” // It has been though however that something was yet left to be done upon this subject; and that writers in general have fallen into the error of attributing the uneasiness which they describe, rather to a certain ignorance of external forms, and unhappiness in merely conventional details, which any girl of sense and spirit would overcome in a few months, than to that radical opposition in habits, sentiments, tastes, and feelings, which renders domestic happiness so rarely attainable, in cases of this kind.’ ‘A Country Vicarage’ occupies all of vol. 1 and pp. [1]–36 of vol. 2; this being followed by ‘A Tale of an Oak Tree’ (poetry), pp. [37]–72; and ‘Love and Duty’, which fills pp. [73]–272 and all of vol. 3.

Notes. ‘Advertisement’, pp. [iii]–iv, signed ‘The Author, London: February 1836’. This reads as a light-hearted preface, in which the author claims that the ‘subsequent pages exhibit the facts that I am a foe to popery in every pale,—to tyranny in every cabinet,—to monopoly in every form’, while avowing an attachment to the constitution and every section of the Church ‘kindred to that of a lover’. The author compares the adventures of Don Poplin to those of Quixote, as a ‘farrago of heterogeneous topics’, and directly addresses ‘Tory reviewers’, from whom he knows he can ‘expect no mercy’: he asks for none and wants none, promising subsequent volumes if this one is successful. A list of contents follows on pp. [v]–vi. Printer’s mark of J. Rider, 14 Bartholemew Close.

Notes. Bentley MS Lists describes author as ‘Mrs Colonel Garner (Countess Pisani)’. Prefatory address, pp. [v]–ix, begins: ‘When I first determined upon writing a tale of fiction as a resource against “Leisure hours”—those mental vampires which suck all the health of fitful occupation—I was particularly desirous of fixing upon an entirely new subject.’ (p. [v]) The author speculates writing a romance, a satire of high life, or sketches of ‘the lower Irish’, before settling somewhere in the middle: ‘Thus, between ghosts and gourmands, the spirit and the flesh, I was nearly scared altogether from my undertaking, when an opportune visit to Paris, by introducing “animal magnetism” to my notice, suggested to me that the point I sought “might lie between”—it professing to be that mysterious point between mind and matter, too material in its effects to be all mind, and too subtile to be all matter!’ (pp. vii–viii). Printer’s marks and colophons of Samuel Bentley, Dorset Street, Fleet Street. Bentley MS List records print run of 750 copies.

PREST, Thomas Peckett, THE CALENDAR OF HORRORS
See 1835: 78

1836: 57     [PREST, Thomas Peckett (and oBlock questioningly attributes, probably erroneously, to G. W. M. Reynolds; the work has also been attributed to Gilbert Abbott à Beckett. Summers (pp. 14–15) comments: ‘The “Bos” parodies and imitations of Dickens were written in collaboration by Thomas Peckett Prest, William Bayle Bernard, and Morris Barnett. Lloyd the publisher suggested the idea of travesties of the popular Dickens […] After some discussion “Bos” was fixed upon, and in spite of protests from Charles Dickens and his publishers Lloyd issued “Bos” tales very successfully for five or more years’. Preface (1 p. unn.), subscribed ‘ “Bos.” / Brompton Square’, notes: ‘In fulfilment of the promise, made at the commencement of this work; we conclude it with the present—or twelfth number. It is true the extraordinary sale our “Sketch Book” has had, might have tempted us to exceed the limits originally proposed; but when we reflected upon the pledge given, we at once abandoned all selfish considerations of profit, and the work is now finished. […] In no one instance have our pages been sullied, with a sentence that might raise a blush or shock morality. We have studied to improve the minds of our readers, and though many of our subjects are of a comic vein, their design is to point out, and discourage the follies that occasionally creep into society. […] we will now take a respectful leave of our numerous readers, assuring them that ere long we shall meet again; a Second Series of the “Sketch Book” being already in a state of forwardness.’ Index (1 p. unn.) follows, listing sketches in alphabetical order. The work is divided into separate ‘Sketch-Books’, with the issue number on the left-hand side of the foot of the opening pages. Approximately half the copy examined is made up of blank paper.
