TAYLOR, John (1757--1832)
To John Soane, Esq. On his anonymous assailants. By John Taylor, Esq.
[London]: [1823?].
[2] p. ; 12.7 cm. (12°)

Drop-head title, verso blank. Verse set as for a newspaper. 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 other verses to Soane on his lectures (q.v.) and on the Pitt cenotaph at the National Debt Redemption Office (q.v.; q.v.), some of which were included in his collection Poems on various subjects, 1827 (q.v.). The present sonnet, beginning 'Soane, deck'd with well-won honours, ne'er repine', may have been penned on the occasion of an attack in the press to which The Sun published a rebuttal in January 1823 (q.v.).

Copy Notes Four copies, almost certainly presented by the author, are in Soane's archives.

Binding Loose leaf.

Reference Number 6289
