Volume 1 contains On the poetry of Bernard Barton and Critical remarks on "Yamoyden," a poem by Mr. Eastburn; titles from Volume 2 include On the blindness of Homer, Ossian, and Milton and On the character and writings of Sir Thomas Browne, with extracts from, and observations on his Religio Medici. Drake (1766-1836), an English essayist and physician, was the son of the artist Nathan Drake, from a Yorkshire family of considerable standing. He received his M.D. at Edinburgh University, and then set up as a general practitioner at Sudbury, Suffolk. His works include several volumes of literary essays, as well as papers contributed to medical periodicals, including On the use of digitalis in pulmonary consumption, a topic in which he was considered an authority. His most important work was Shakespeare and his times, a biography, criticism, chronology and history. Bookseller Inventory # 12152
