134 ページ - On a Man's writing Memoirs of Himself; On Decision of Character ; On the Application of the Epithet Romantic ; On some of the Causes by which Evangelical Religion has been rendered less acceptable to Persons of cultivated Taste.
31 ページ - Bickerstaff's Lucubrations was attended with much the same consequences as the death of Meliboeus's ox in Virgil : as the latter engendered swarms of bees, the former immediately produced whole swarms of little satirical scribblers. One of these authors called himself the Growler ; and assured us, that, to make amends for Mr. Steele's silence, he was resolved to growl at us weekly, as long as we should think fit to give him any encouragement.
54 ページ - His abilities were unquestionable : he had almost as much wit, learning, and various knowledge, as his two partners : and when those great masters chose not to appear in public themselves, he supplied their places so well, that his essays were often ascribed to them. Amhurst survived the downfall of Walpole's power, and had reason to expect a reward for his labours. If we...
22 ページ - I have been annotated, retattled, examined, and condoled': but it being my standing maxim, never to speak ill of the dead ; I shall let these authors rest in peace, and take great pleasure in thinking that I have sometimes been the means of their getting a belly-full.
12 ページ - Do you know that Grub street is dead and gone last week ? No more ghosts or murders now for love or money.
22 ページ - B — s's dropping his cloak, with the whole congregation hanging upon the skirts of it. To enumerate some of these my doughty antagonists, I was threatened to be answered weekly Tit for Tat: I was undermined by the Whisperer, haunted by Tom Brown's Ghost, scolded at by a Female Tatler, and slandered by another of the same character, under the title of Atalantis. I have been annotated, retattled, examined, and condoled...
69 ページ - This is to certify, that Robert Drury, fifteen years a slave, in Madagascar, now living in London, was redeemed from thence, and brought into England, his native country, by myself. I esteem him an honest, industrious man, of good reputatation, and do firmly believe that the account he gives of his strange and surprising adventures is genuine and authentic.
58 ページ - Having for above four years and half been the chief manager of the Universal Spectator, and all my Essays during that time being collected together here, I desire, that after my Death, this book may be preserved in my Family, since the printing them together may perhaps some time hereafter be of Use
109 ページ - I first printed two octavos (of the Observer) experimentally at our press in Tunbridge Wells ; the execution was so incorrect that I stopped the impression as soon as I had engaged my friend, Mr. Charles Dilly, to undertake the reprinting of it. He gave it a form and shape fit to meet the public eye, and the sale was encouraging. I added to the collection very largely, and it appeared in a new edition of five volumes : when these were out of print, I made a fresh arrangement of the essays, and, incorporating...
