Dublin : PRINTED BY JOHN KING,

No. 2, Westmoreland-Street

======

1806.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the first printing from 1806 as it has 70 pages and no mention of the author

The very first print was published anonymously

Later Printings Named The Author

&: 

The author was of course: John Wilson Croker

I have managed to find examples of John Crokers' handwriting and would say that the hand-written notes & comments in this book are by him.

In the very first printing, names were omitted and dots were entered into the text, with the first letter of the name and sometimes the first and last letter, so for instance:

Page 12: M*****, is entered as text and there are a couple of hand written notes on the page.

One says: Munson, who changed his name to Warburton on marrying.

There are quite a few hand-written notes on the pages throughout the book. All in aged ink quite possibly 207 years ago! 

I wonder if the names were omitted from the text for fear of libel?

The booklet is the earliest form of a high-society gossip magazine !!

The only other example of this work is in the British Library and that one is a second printing, that names the author, and has 73 pages and additional notes, so this book, offered for sale today; is a very rare book indeed.

It's a Museum Piece.

John Wilson Croker: (20th December 1780 to 10th August 1857) was an Irish Statesman and author.

CONDITION & DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

As stated, the very first printing had 70 pages and this book has all pages present.

They are bound by 3 ties at the margin. The top and bottom are of white cotton and the middle one is green thread [thicker than the cotton].

This is a small paper booklet/pamphlet. The edges are folded at the corners for the majority of the book. Gentle soiling to the front and rear covers and minimal throughout.

There are a few small corners chipped but the text is never affected by this.

If you have any questions prior to buying, please do get in touch.

Thank you for your interest
