TAYLOR, John (1757--1832)
On the late Marquess of Londonderry. By John Taylor, Esq.
[London]: [1822?].
[2] p. ; 14.3 cm. (12°)

Drop-head title. Verse set as for a newspaper. First lines: 'What! though a rabble rais'd a hideous stave / When noble Stuart sunk into the grave, ...'. John Taylor was the proprietor of The Sun newspaper from 1813 to 1825 and one of Soane's closest friends in later life, who wrote several verses to Soane (qq.v.), some of which were included in his collection Poems on various subjects, 1827 (q.v.). Robert Stewart, Viscount Castlereagh and 2nd Marquess of Londonderry, took his own life in August 1822. This poem was possibly penned after Castlereigh's funeral at Westminster Abbey, when his hearse was reviled by spectators (see ODNB).

Binding Paper attached to C20th ruled notepaper, C20th brown book tape.

Reference Number 6827
