Book Condition: Fine
192 pages. A 19th century advertising parody, first published in 1824. 'The book purported to contain ringing endorsements of the well-known manufacturer of blacking (i.e. boot polish), Robert Warren, by many of the leading literary figures (Byron, Coleridge, Scott and Wordsworth amongst them) and journals (Blackwood's, John Bull, the New Monthly) of the day. It was the work of the precocious twenty-four year old London journalist William Frederick Deacon. The book offers a series of agile and vivacious parodies of a wide range of Romantic period writing: poetry, essays, literary and political journalism, historiography, sermons, parliamentary reports and scholarship and yet . . . it has been neglected, ignored even by historians of Romantic parody.'--John Strachan, The Praise of Blacking, Romanticism on the Net 15, August 1999. Second American edition. A truly near fine copy that belies its 160 years. Publisher's brown cloth, with gilt at the spine. Publisher's catalog dated March 1851 tipped to the front free endpaper.
