Fleet Street. William Wright. 1821. pp. 64. 8vo. Contemporary style half calf, marbled boards. Half title present. Wise Vol 2, p. 77. 'This is not only a scarce book, but also an interesting one. Regarding it Byron write - I have just read John Bull's Letter. It is diabolically well written, and full of fun and ferocity. I must forgive the dog, whoever he is.'
