Title
Commonplace book containing poetry by Elizabeth Le Noir and others, circa 1810
Summary
Sewn notebook with semi-stiff marbled covers, containing over fifty poems and extracts in a single, neat, unidentified hand. The first sixteen pieces are copied from Elizabeth Anne Le Noir's Village Anecdotes (1804). Most of the other pieces are, or appear to be, copied from contemporary periodicals; named sources include the European Magazine, the Lady's Magazine, and the Lewes Journal. Identified or identifiable authors include Robert Lloyd, John Dent (M.P. and banker), Christopher Smart, Jonas Hanway, and Alexander Pope. Nine of the pieces could possibly be original and unpublished: "On a Neighbour's Decease," page 17; "Found Written in the Prayer Book of Miss B.," page 23; "On the Harrow Band," page 24; "To the Miss Grah-ms of Chelsea, By a Naval Officer," signed "H.E.B.," page 25; "Song" ("In infant years, e'er my poor panting heart"), page 25; "Song" ("To freedom born young Pressail's heart"), page 26; "On a late Festival at the Crown at H---w to the Miss B's," page 33; "Morning" ("The clock proclaims the day to country sleepers"), page 34; and "Origin of Oyster Eating" ("He who at first converted me to meat"), page 35. The paper bears the watermark of S. & C. Wise, paper manufacturers of Maidstone, Kent, and is dated 1810.
