Syllabus of a course of lectures on oratory, to be delivered at the Surry Institution, by James Ogilvie, Esq. To commence on Friday, the 6th of November, 1818, ...

2, [2] p. ; 23.2 cm. (4°)

Drop-head title. Imprint from docket-title reading 'Surry Institution, 1818. Syllabus ...'. In December, midway through his series of lectures, Ogilvie, a native of Aberdeenshire, approached Soane's close friend the newspaper editor James Perry as Editor of the Morning Chronicle and a fellow Scot to solicit his support by the insertion of brief but favourable reviews of the lectures; a second, undated letter to an unnamed recipient (possibly Soane?) requesting his support on the basis of the favourable notice, with which / you have honoured me to hold lectures at the Royal Institution. Also in the Soane archive are two letters of introduction dated January 1818, one signed [Skew?] Ogilvy addressed to The Revd. Doctor Chalmers in Glasgow and the other signed James Cordiner addressed to the Earl of Guildford, identifying Ogilvie as the son of the poet and minister John Ogilvie (1732--1813). (Priv. Corr. II.O.3).

Binding Folded paper.
