St. Godwin: a Tale of the Sixteenth, Seventeenth, and Eighteenth Century. By Count Reginald de St. Leon
London: Printed for J. Wright, Piccadilly, 1800. First edition. xxiv, 435 pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Full later black calf, joints rubbed, covers bowed, half-title and title page slightly foxed- still, a very good copy of a scarce book. With the bookplate of David Garnett, and his pencilled notes on the front pastedown. Anti-Godwin Satire A spoof of Godwin and his ST. LEON by this conservative author, translator and critic. Du Bois was a regular contributor to the Morning Chronicle, and sometime editor of the Monthly Mirror, the Lady's Magazine and the European Magazine. His other books include: A Piece of Family Biography. 3 vols., 1799; The Wreath (selections, translations, remarks etc) 1799; The Fairy of Misfortune (a translation) (also 1799); Old Nick 1801; and The Decameron (a revised translation with remarks) 1804. In 1805 he edited Hayley's Ballads with plates by William Blake. David Garnett's pencilled note reads: "This was no vicious political satire, such as Godwin had grown used to, but a comparatively gentle parody."
