About this Item

First edition, small 8vo, 4 parts in 1; pp. [iii]-viii, iv, 64; 31, [1]; [2], 94; 16; each part with a special title-p. dated 1809, and separate paging; contemporary half brown calf over paper-covered boards, gilt-lettered direct on gilt-lettered spine; very good and sound. Only 500 were printed. Although Ritson acquired a reputation as an editor of literary anthologies, mostly of popular poetry and ballads, his uncompromising and supercilious temperament combined with unprovoked attacks on his contemporaries brought him many enemies, including John Pinkerton whose Origin of the Scythians or Goths was boldly refuted by Ritson in his Annals. Ritson "contended against Pinkerton for the Celtic origin of the Scottish people, and charitably ascribed to madness Pinkerton's difference of opinion." Earlier in his life a "perusal of Mandeville's Fable of the Bees impelled Ritson to forswear all animal food, and to subsist solely on milk and vegetables. To this depressing diet he adhered, in the face of much ridicule, until death, and it was doubtless in part responsible for the moroseness of temper which characterized his later years" (see DNB).
