A PROCLAMATION FOR STARVATION ‘VERAX, Ebenezer’ (pseud.).
A wonderful Sermon, or, truth undisguised. To be preached on the fast-day … With suitable hymns, a proclamation, and petition to His Majesty. [Price six pence].
Second issue, possibly preceded by an undated issue priced three pence, of this pseudonymous, rabidly republican pamphlet in the form of a ‘proclamation’ by the King of Hog Island for a ‘general starvation’. This is followed by a sermon calling for war with France, accompanied by suitably apocalyptic biblical verses. Printed by the radical printer Daniel Isaac Eaton, under his radical imprint, ‘Printer to the Supreme Majesty of the People’.
A Father’s Legacy to his Daughters … the second Edition.
‘Second edition’ of Gregory’s Legacy to his Daughters, published immediately after the first. Written following the death of the author’s wife in 1761, the text was not intended for publication, rather to provide posthumous guidance for his two daughters, whom he brought up ‘in a philosophical simplicity’ (ODNB) endorsed by his friend Elizabeth Montagu. The year following his death in 1773, however, it was published by his son James with considerable success, with numerous editions, translations, and piracies printed in quick succession.
