. Seven works in one volume, 8vo. Upper wrapper of Blacow’s Defence bound in, “The Queen that Jack Found” with 13 woodcuts - 12 by George Cruikshank - and bound without the advertisements, Osmer’s Dissertation lacking one leaf (pp 43/4). Some light foxing and soiling, old manuscript contents list to front blank, marbled endpapers, sides and edges, bookplates to paste down and fly leaf. 19th century half calf, slightly worn, rebacked with a black label reading “Pamphlets”. A varied collection of 18th and 19th century works, including several very rare items. Scholefield’s sermon followed the riots and destruction of the Dissenters’ chapels in Birmingham. The Abstract and Appendix to the Sacred Tragedy are removed from a larger work. Rev. Richard Blacow was convicted of libel, having referred to Queen Caroline in a sermon as “the Goddess of Lust”, and she is also the subject of the lively poem “The Queen That Jack Found”, which contains caricatures of the royal couple and other public figures. Freer’s paper on syphilis was his only published work. Only two copies (Oxford and Cambridge) located of Blacow’s Defence, and one (Edinburgh) of the play “The Operatives”. Osmer’s “Dissertation on Horses” is a very scarce work in any edition with only three copies appearing at auction in the last 30 years. Cohn 679.
