The book was first issued by Richardson in 1740, shortly before the publication of his first novel Pamela. The above copy is the third edition, second issue; the Preface, the Life, and the Reflections are all the work of Samuel Richardson. This issue is probably the last edition printed by Richardson as he died in 1761. Early copies in such excellent condition are rare.

  • ‘There was an old person of Dover.’ by LEAR, Edward.
    LEAR, Edward.
    ‘There was an old person of Dover.’

    1846. An original pen & ink drawing by Edward Lear, taken from ‘A Book of Nonsense,’ first published in 1846. This drawing has been examined and fully authenticated as Lear’s work by the late Vivien Noakes, the world expert on Edward Lear. The drawing accompanies the limerick, ‘There was an old person of Dover.’ It is drawn on silk, or possibly fine rag paper, and then laid on paper for support. It was drawn, almost certainly for presentation to friends, and would originally have been part of a group of drawings bound in book form, probably at the time of its making in the early 1860’s. There is some staining and browning, but otherwise the drawing is in excellent condition.…
