FORD, Richard.

A handbook for travellers in Spain . . . Third edition, entirely revised, with great additions.

Third edition. ‘In the 1855 edition, the last in his lifetime, much of the previously rejected material was re-introduced, bibliographies were brought up-to-date, and obsolete data omitted. Ford’s prejudices are here less apparent; some of his more caustic references are toned down. But although this was Ford’s “last word”, much of the new matter which had been added was information which had reached him at second-hand; over twenty years had passed since he had left “well-beloved” Spain’ (Ian Robertson in the introduction to the 1966 Centaur Press edition, pp. xv–xvi).

FORD, Richard.

Gatherings from Spain. By the author of the Handbook of Spain; chiefly selected from that work, with much new matter.

First edition. ‘While Ford composed much new material for his Gatherings, a proportion had been copied verbatim from several of his earlier reviews – such as that on The Banditti of Spain (in the “Quarterly” of April 1838) – or from the Hand-book, as will be realised by readers making a comparison . . . . Bull-feasts and bull-fights (Chapters XXI–XXII) had also been the subject of his 40-page review in the “Quarterly” of October 1838’ (Ian Robertson in the introduction to his edition of Gatherings from Spain, Pallas Athene, 2000, p. xxv).
