Samuel Hibbert-Ware (1782-1848) Antiquary and Geologist. ODNB ‘.

This provoked an anonymous reply in [the above work] (1828), which aimed to ‘counteract any sentiments approaching materialism’ aroused by Hibbert's essay .’With an Appendix ‘Singular Narration extracted from a recent Publication, entitled "Foreign Scenes and Travelling Recreations ," by John Howison, Esq. of the Honourable East India Company’s Service.’ John Howison (1797–1859), writer and surgeon.
