Description

Excerpt from The Bibliographical Decameron, or Ten Days Pleasant Discourse Upon Illuminated Manuscripts, and Subjects Connected With Early Engraving, Typography, and Bibliography, Vol. 3 Alas, Poon Musrarns For Musrarna, ' read now, the late Wuusu Nanson Gannmrn, Bookseller in pall-mall. This unfortunate bibliopolist laid violent hands on himself, about three years after the delineation of his character, in the Bibliomania, under the name of Mustapha see page 163 of that work. That delineation, however, was by no means the cause of such a catastrophe. It had been provoked, or it would not have been obtruded upon the public. Mr. William Nelson Gardiner found that it was not stingless; as indeed it was not intended to be - for, previously to its appearance, my name and pretensions had been treated, in one of his own hatch-patch catalogues, with so little ceremony and courtesy, that he must have considered me a mere dolt to have quietly sub mitted to such outrageous and unfounded censure. Accordingly he received the castigation in question; which, coming upon a thin-skin surface, necessarily pro duced blisters, and engendered a disposition to retaliate. His lcx talionis' was demonstrated in a subsequent catalogue: his usual channel of making the public acquainted with the importance of his sentiments on all points - for he verily believed that none but himself could be his parallel.'
