Poems. On Various Subjects.
Ulverston: Printed for the Author by J. Soulby. 1818 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo (in 4s), 185 x 166 mms., pp. viii, 142 [143 "Address," 144 blank], including half-title and list of subscribers, contemporary half calf, gilt spine, red morocco label, marbled boards; bookplate on front paste-down end-paper with name scored out and "Braithwaite" in pencil beneath, but a very good to fine copy. Briggs (1788 - 1824), who was editor of The Lonsdale Magazine, managed to garner about 350 subscribers for this volume. It is of some bibliographic interest, having been printed at Soulby's press a year after his death, probably by Stephen Tyson, who is one of the subscribers, on behalf of the trustees; it is only one of two books issued by this press. Michael Twyman: John Soulman, Printer, Ulverston (1966), pp. 27 - 28. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
