John Playfair : Peerage

Lord Webb Seymour to Mary Berry, 16 July 1809: 'I hope you will congratulate [John] Playfair for me and for yourself, upon his late publication -- "a Peerage" in five volumes, at ten guineas a volume. Lord Galloway [...] makes it a rule never to subscribe to any book, but an application some time ago from a person of the name of Playfair [...] induced him to relax his rule [...] At length the work appeared, and I found Lord Galloway grievously disappointed by the trifling stuff and fulsome flattery with which the production of this profound man abounded.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Lord Galloway      Print: Book
