Descripción

On one side of a piece of foolscap (33 x 20.5 cm). Text clear and complete. On aged paper, with wear to extremities and slight loss to bottom right-hand corner. Three items are listed: 'Description of Ancient Glass at Credenhill' (1884), 'The simile of ancient glass in Bristol Church representing St George in full military costume' and '[Herefordshire] Words & Phrases' (1887). Havergal adds nine lines of annotation to the last item, beginning: '- see Prospectus - issued to Subscribers only at 2/6. present price 4/- issue very small - only 300 copies which will soon be sold out. Printing alone cost 2/6. the work grew largely during compilation from 800 entries as expected to over 1300.' He notes that there are 'still some "Words" & rhymes not in this collection', and that he will 'be pleased to receive communications' for a revised edition 'from all who send them to Upton Bishop'. He points out that 'Circulars were sent to a large number of Gentry & Magistrates. very few took any notice of the matter'. Of the 330 schoolmasters who received prospectuses '4 only responded!' He refers to an 'enclosed paper' (not present) with details of 'Other publications contemplated if there be any demand', and ends 'Mr. H. would be glad to make the Cathedral volume his "magnum opus" - a really fine thing', but that it 'could not be done under 2 or 3 Guineas'.
