9781330809594: The History of the London Clubs, or the Citizens Pastime, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The History of the London Clubs, or the Citizens Pastime, Vol. 1

HE scarcity of Edward (commonly called Ned Ward's works is too well-known to need comment: but it was his London Spy which established his fame as an author. This has now become so rare that only the wealthy are able to acquire a copy at all. It is, however, questionable whether his Secret History of London Clubs, 1709 (of which a new limited edition is here offered for private subscription), is not even of greater rarity, for whilst the London Spy can boast of several editions in addition to the original folio of 1698 1700, there was but the solitary issue of the London Clubs, and a Copy would to-day realise an extravagant sum, even at auction. All collectors of books on London Antiquities will therefore welcome this limited re-issue of Ned Ward's curious work on extinct London clubs in default of that mm aw's the original, which is now almost impossible to procure. It was a wretched typographical effort, in the crude chap-book style, with two curious blocks (which have been re - produced for this edition in exact fac-simile) and abounded with compositors' errors of all descriptions. The matter given, however, forms a valuable and noteworthy link in the chain of London Life at the beginning of the last century, and in its present readable form it will doubtless readily find a place amongst London collections where the existence even of the original was previously unknown. Though Ned Ward, as was the custom in his day, sometimes waxed unnecessarily gross in his language, still as the poet Campbell says in his Essays on Englz's/z Poetry. His descriptions are humorous, curious, and full of life, and are worth preserving as delinea tions of the manners of the time.
