NICHOLS, John (1745--1826)
[The progresses, processions, and magnificent festivities, of King James the First. Advertisement]
In the course of publication, to be completed in XVIII. parts of which XVII. are ready for delivery, price 10s. 6d. each, The progresses, processions, and magnificent festivities, of King James the First, his royal consort, family, and court. ... By John Nichols, F.S.A. ...
[London]: [1826?].
[4] p. ; 25.9 cm. (4º)

Drop-head title. Watermark: 'T. Edmonds / 1825'. This advertisement, which includes an extract of a review in the Gentleman's Magazine of June 1826, was probably printed not long before the author's sudden death on Sunday 26 November 1826. This event was no doubt in part at least responsible for the delay in delivering 'the Eighteenth and concluding Portion', promised here 'on or about the first of February, 1827', but not in fact published until the following year, at which time a decision was taken to issue the work in four rather than 'three handsome Quarto Volumes' as originally planned. With a list of subscribers on p. [4]. This does not include Soane, but a draft of a letter to Nichols dated 25 July 1827 requesting that his name be placed amongst the subscribers is preserved in the archive (Priv. Corr. XVI.F.61) and his name appears in the 'List Of Purchasers As Far As Known To The Publisher' in vol. I of the published work (q.v.).

Copy Notes The words 'XVII. are' in the title are inked out in this copy and the last is nearly interpolated in their place. With five illegible words, possibly MS to be [?] inscribed in ink at the foot of p. [4], in an unidentified hand.

Binding Loose bifolium.

Reference Number 2880
