Descripción Stamford: printed by Francis Howgrave, 1742. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Good. 1st Edition. (8), 61 pp. + an engraved frontispiece. 4to, full brown morocco, gilt, spine gilt, a.e.g., by Riviere & Son. First edition. A remarkable poem on cock-fighting, described by the author in his dedication as a "diversion . . . daily growing into esteem;" the author was himself an enthusiast of this violent sport. Much of the verse is devoted to the breeding of birds and the hatching of eggs, but the poem concludes with a vivid, if crudely-written, description of an actual match, with the spectators engaged in excited wagering: "Thus circling round the glitt'ring guineas fly, / As various odds become the gen'ral cry, / And five to two the nice advent'rers ply." The last line is explained by one of the author's many informative footnotes: "Five to two is a common bett with the groom porters, when the cocks on both sides are judg'd of an equality, against naming the side which wins the following battles, but if either party be judged superior to the other, their bett is then five and a half to two against the weakest winning two together." Particular attention is paid to the sharp metal spurs attached to the birds' feet, to make the contest lethal. A reference to an "ingenious artist" named Smith is glossed: "Mr. Thomas Smith, near Katherine-Street, being allow'd the most curious and noted maker of silver cock-weapons." The lines of the poem are very widely spaced (with sometimes as much as 2 cm between each line), giving the text on the page a striking and distinctly provincial appearance. Francis Howgrave established his press in Stamford in 1732, where he published the Stamford Mercury, a newspaper which lasted for much of the 18th century. With a two-page list of subscribers, including the printer himself, as well as Mr. Thomas Howgrave, Sir Thomas Trollope, Thomas Trollope, Esq., and T. M. Trollope, Esq. The frontispiece engraved by Emanuel Bowen shows three gentleman, one holding a bird, one a sack and key, and the other a numbered scroll. A fine copy of a very rare Lincolnshire imprint; the ESTC lists four copies (L; CSmH, CLU-C, CtY). Foxon H6; CBEL II, 1569. Nº de ref. de la librería 439h-p
