Description:

How To Lose Friends and Irritate People"The Power of Women to Sap Women's Confidence" "Always…Do Unto Every One, What You Would Least Wish to Have Done Unto Yourself."WOODWARD, G[eorge] M[outard, artist]. [ROWLANDSON, Thomas, engr.]. [COLLIER, Jane. author]. An Essay on the Art of Ingeniously Tormenting. A new edition, corrected, revised and illustrated, with five prints from designs by G.M. Woodward, Esq.… London: Printed for Thomas Tegg, 1808. First edition with the Woodward illustrations. Sixteenmo (6 5/8 x 4 inches; 169 x 102 mm.). [viii], 160 pp. Folding hand colored frontispiece signed "Woodward del" and "Rowlandson sc.", and four other hand colored etched plates all signed "Woodward del".Bound in late nineteenth century full calf by Riviére & Son with triple fillets, gilt decorated compartments. Gilt dentelles. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Gilt-rolled edges. Expertly and almost invisibly rebacked with the original spine laid-down. A very attractive and near fine copy. Of George Murgatroyd Woodward(1760?–1809), caricaturist and author, the DNB notes that he, "later known as Mustard George, grew up in a Derbyshire town, living with his father and, to judge by the evidence of his later writings, received a sound education. He took early to caricature, ridiculing his neighbours in Derbyshire; a folio of these drawings dated 1781 is in the Derby Loc al Studies Library, among a sizable collection of his prints, drawings, and book illustrations. His caricatures having caused something of a local stir, he persuaded his father to let him seek his fortune in London."Apart from two caricature prints dated 1785 designed by Woodward and published by him from 28 Cary Street, Lincoln's Inn, London, it was not until 1790 that he made an impact on the London scene. Thereafter his output was copious. The British Museum catalogues list 525 examples of his work from the next twenty years, published by Holland, Fores, Ackermann, and latterly Tegg, all leading printsellers. These prints, designed by Woodward, are etched by others—Rowlandson, who was his friend and drinking companion, Isaac Cruikshank, Roberts, and Williams. Woodward's original drawings are vigorous… [and] his value lay in his humorous ideas."Woodward…might have rivalled Hogarth. Certainly his collaboration with Rowlandson constituted a lively, if frivolous, commentary on the social scene. Dorothy George described him as ‘original, prolific, varied, humorous and good-humoured,’ and few students of the subject would dispute her conclusion that his death was ‘a loss to caricature’ (George, English Political Caricature, 1.174)" (Simon Heneage, ‘Woodward, George Murgatroyd (1760?–1809)’, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004 Novelist Jane Collier (1710- 1755) anonymously wrote the volume under notice in 1753. The book "ironically addresses both those who can be hurt by power (husbands, but chiefly mistresses of servants) and those who can hurt by affection (wives, friends). Writing as a sufferer, not an inflicter, of hurt, she explores… most frighteningly the power of women to sap women's confidence" A close friend of novelists Sarah Fielding Samuel Richardson, she limns the first principle of proper tease and torment: "Remember always to do unto every one, what you would least wish to have done unto yourself."Rare. Not in Abbey.Prideaux, p. 383. Bookseller Inventory #
