London: [Thomas Rodd], 1843. 16pp, disbound from a volume at some point, t.e.g. Slightly browned, one or two spots of foxing, but generally clean. Wise notes that "In 1843, when advertising the present pamphlet for sale, Rodd asserted that it was a facsimile reprint of an alleged original edition of which the author was said to have printed twenty copies in 1816. No example of this mysterious original has ever been unearthed ... My own opinion is that no original ever existed ... The motto 'We pity the plumage but forget the dying bird' was taken by Shelley from Paine's 'Rights of Man', 1817, Pt.I, p. 24, 'He [Burke] pities the plumage but forgets the dying bird'. This clearly denies any impression of the address dated 1816". The pamphlet decries the difference between the public concern for the death of the Princess and their indifference to the plight of the poorest in society (plus ca change) and also examines the execution of the leaders of the Pentrich Rising.

The Rivals - A Comedy

London: John Wilkie, 1775. x, [6], 100pp. Bound in full tree calf, later rebacked, semi-raised bands, spine in six panels, morocco title / author label to second panel, remaining panels with central flower and leaf corner pieces in gilt. Very minor rubbing to extremities, internally some light browning, with some light occasional foxing, but generally fairly bright. Catchword 'EPI' on page one hundred, but the epilogue is found after the prologue at the front of the book as usual, Williams notes that the book was never issued with an Epilogue at the end. Sheridan's play, initially unsuccessful, was quickly rewritten and now considered a classic, and of course introduced us to Mrs. Malaprop. First edition, second issue, with page 79 correctly numbered. Not in Rothschild; Williams, pg 212; NCBEL II:818. First Edition. Full Calf. Very Good. 8vo.
