Love & madness : the murder of Martha Ray, mistress of the Fourth Earl of Sandwich by M. J Levy( Book )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In eighteenth-century England the aristocracy dominated the imagination, their exploits -- and misdeeds -- discussed, debated, and gossiped about in the salons and parlors of London. Now author Martin Levy vividly re-creates one of the most shocking and scandalous events of the period, in a riveting true tale of passion, obsession, murder, and courtroom drama. On a spring evening in the year 1779, a young woman emerged from London's Covent Garden Theatre amid a grand swirl of lords and ladies, their servants and coachmen. From out of the shadows a man emerged, dressed in a black suit. He raised a pistol and fired one fatal shot point-blank into the woman's head. A sudden and brutal murder, it was all the more shocking because of the identities of those involved. The victim was Martha Ray, famed aficionada of fashion and the arts, and longtime live-in mistress of the Earl of Sandwich, high-ranking minister to King George III. The assailant was James Hackman, a respected Anglican minister and Martha Ray's former lover. It was a savage crime that rocked both British high society and the church, and inflamed the interest and imagination of such renowned personages as Samuel Johnson and James Boswell, noted biographer and lover of prostitutes and executions. And it resulted in a courtroom extravaganza unique in the annals of legal proceedings -- where passion was the motive, the madness of "momentary phrenzy" the mitigating circum-stance ... and love the ultimate justification for a crazed act of murder

Perdita : the memoirs of Mary Robinson by Mary Robinson( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
When Mary Robinson played 'Perdita' at Drury Lane, she captivated the Prince of Wales. So began a very public love affair. But the Prince was not her only admirer. Mrs Robinson's 'genius and engaging manners' attracted some of the most famous figures of the day, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Mary Wollstonecraft, William Godwin and David Garrick among them. She also netted the Duchess of Devonshire, who became her patron, Gainsborough painted her portrait, the Duc d'Orleans courted her in Paris, and Marie-Antoinette gave her a purse. Robinson's talents, however, were not confined to stage, parlour or bedroom. In addition to her acting and her amours, she published novels, plays and poetry; one of her poems welcomed the French Revolution and another was written, like 'Kubla Khan' under the influence of opium. She also edited the poetry section of the Morning Post, an important radical London daily
