Notes. This work has been sometimes attributed to ‘Arthur Courtenay’, but there is no evidence that such a person existed.

The note on p. 194 reads: ‘Mr. Courtenay does not appear to have continued his Autobiography beyond this period; but I am indebted to the kindness of his old and tried friend, so often mentioned in this narrative, for the annexed Letters, written subsequent to the melancholy death of Adolphe de Beaulieu, and which, if the reader is sufficiently interested in the foregoing narrative to peruse, he will find, brings it down to the period of our meeting, in the North of England’. Adv. list (2 pp. unn.) at start of vol. for books ‘Lately Published, by T. Hookham, Old Bond Street’. Printer’s mark of J. and C. Adlard, Bartholomew Close.

Notes. 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.

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).

Preface, pp. [ix]–xii, notes: ‘I would willingly look forward to these volumes obtaining so much favour as to justify a second series, in which case I propose bringing forward, under the name of “The Children of the Year,” a mass of popular traditions that are but little known to the general reader’ (p. xi). 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). Lists of contents (1 p. unn. each) precede main text in each vol. Printer’s marks and colophons of Bradbury and Evans, Whitefriars (Late T. Davison).

If by decided is meant sectarian, I freely acknowledge that I have, both in the first and second volume, studiously avoided every sentiment, and every mode of expression, not common to Christians of every denomination, deeming the fundamental principles of religion all-sufficient for my purpose. […] It must also be remembered that my object is rather moral than religious’ (pp. [v]–vi). The vol. contains ‘Misanthropy’, pp. [1]–213, and ‘The Pains of Pleasing’, pp. 215–410.

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’.

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.’
