Bath; A Satirical Novel, with portraits by Thomas Brown, the elder: author of Brighton, or the Steyne. FIRST EDITION. 3 vols. 12mo.
Bound without half titles in contemporary half calf, gilt spines. Neat contemp. monogram stamp to 'A.J.C'. A v.g., attractive copy. 3 copies only on Copac. The pseudonymous 'Thomas Brown, the Elder' was also the author of Brighton (see following item), The Englishman in Paris 1819, London, or a Month at Steven's, 1819 and Edinburgh, 1820. Types of visitors to Bath are described and lampooned but satire occasionally descends into 'scandalmongering' or even mild pornography. The portraits include that of Coleridge whose career is seen (through contemporary eyes) as that of a turn-coat both in poetry and politics. Thomas Moore used the pseudonym of 'Thomas Brown, the Younger' but the identity of his 'elder brother' remains unknown.
