Illustrations of the literary history of the eighteenth century : consisting of authentic memoirs and original letters of eminent persons; and intended as a sequel to the Literary anecdotes by John Nichols( Book )

30 editions published between 1858 and 2015 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subtitle of this eight-volume set is Consisting of Authentic Memoirs and Original Letters of Eminent Persons, and Intended as a Sequel to the 'Literary Anecdotes', which had been published in nine volumes by the author, editor and publisher John Nichols (1745-1826) between 1812 and 1815, and are also reissued in this series. Like its predecessor set, these 'illustrations' are a useful source of biographical material on authors and publishers at a time when many of the literary genres we take for granted, such as the novel, the autobiography and the analytical history, were first being developed. The volumes were published between 1817 and 1858, the project being continued after Nichols' death by his son and grandson. Among the 'eminent persons' included in Volume 5 are Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, and the Chinese sculptor Chitqua, who visited London in 1769

In this nine-volume work, published between 1812 and 1815, the author and publisher John Nichols (1745-1826) provides biographical notes on publishers, writers and artists of the eighteenth century, and also gives 'an incidental view of the progress and advancement of literature in this kingdom during the last century'. (A shorter version had been published in 1782.) His subjects range from the publisher William Bowyer to Henry Fielding and Horace Walpole, and also include histories of individual publishing houses and of genres such as lexicography. The work remains a useful source of biographical material on authors and publishers at a period when many of the literary genres we take for granted, were first being developed. Volume 8 contains anecdotes of the ex-slave Ignatius Sancho, the botanist William Curtis and the antiquarian Samuel Pegge, among many others
