(HOOK, Theordore. Editor). JOHN BULL. For God, The King, and The People. £ 1,500.00

A few tears affecting the text and some trimming of margins which due to the misalignment of the printing block can affect the text on one side only of some pages. The pages in some issues misbound especially in Volume 6. This copy of this weekly newspaper runs from issue No. 4 January 7th 1821 to No. 316 December 31st 1826. Volume 5 is lacking Issue 28 - July 10th 1825 and Volume 6 is lacking Issue 308 - 5th November 1826. The first three volumes are published by Weaver and the last three by Shackell. The first three have continious numbering of issues, the fourth volume reverts to starting with issue 1 as does the fifth. The sixth volume reverts to continious numbering so it starts with Issue no 264. This Tory paper could be vitriolic - 'On Mr Shelley's Poem "Prometheus Unbound." Shelly styles his new poem "Prometheus Unbound,"/ And 'tis like to remain so while time circles round; / For surely an age would be spent in the finding / A reader so weak as to pay for the binding.'

LEWIS, Matthew Gregory. A MANUSCRIPT LETTER. Inveraray - September 10th 1803. £ 2,500.00

Single sheet, folded, 7.5" x 9". 4 sides densely written. The letter describes a journey from Bowood House in Wiltshire to Inveraray Castle in Argyll. It is an amusing, entertaining and rambling thank you letter to Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice, later 3rd Marquess of Lansdowne. Lewis's journey takes him through Kidderminster ' this most infernal of all places.' He finds that 'the roads are all sand; the Hills are all brick-dust colour; the Houses are all dirty; the children are all ugly; the Men are all stupid; ... all the women are born old.' He fantasizes that the ground should open up and swallow Kidderminster and what it would be like when 'discovered in the reign of George the Tenth, like a second Herculaneum!' Discussing his route which takes him through the Lake District, reminds him to recount a report given to Lady Charlotte Campbell, writer and daughter of the 5th Duke of Argyll, who he is staying with, regarding Mary Robinson, the Maid of Buttermere. Mary is described as 'aloof and unconcerned' on the 9th September 1803, the day before the execution of her bigamist husband, the forger John Hatfield. The letter continues with an account of Lord John Campbell, 3rd son of the Duke and later the 7th Duke of Argyll, who has sent a letter home. Lord John has escaped arrest in France with the help of a governess by dressing in women's clothes and hiding in a wood until the governess manages to get a carriage in which he is carried to safety. This letter is full of incidents that are right up the street of the gothic novelist of which 'Monk' Lewis was a leading exponent.
