Something Concerning Nobody Edited by Somebody. Embellished with Fourteen Characteristic Etchings.
London: Robert Scholey, 1814. Full Morocco. Near Fine. Scarce satire, with only copies located on OCLC First Search at the British Library and the Huntington! 8vo. 18.5 by 12 cm. 191, [1] pp. 14 hand-colored plates. Modern full morocco roan reddish binding by Chris Arnison. An account of the travails, indignities, foibles and fooleries of the ordinary man, or Mr. Nobody. More of a series of lightly satiric sketches than a novel or novella. While today the Woodward caricatures -- scarce specimens from a caricaturist whose work is often hard to find -- are likely to excite greater interest among collectors, but the text is in fact every bit as worthy, and provides an excellent glimpse of Regency society and mores. A generally clean copy, in a lovely modern full roan colored morocco.
