IMPORTANT!

This is the ROBERT TEMPLE BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ARCHIVE. It contains descriptions and notes relating to almost 18,000 titles in the fields of British and American literature, being the bulk of the stock that has passed through our hands since 1984, with the addition of a few earlier items of especial interest. Books currently in stock are not included, and it is therefore necessary to supplement your search by looking at our Current Catalogues. For the most part full bibliographical descriptions are given, though for some earlier items, catalogued when computing space was more restricted the details given are quite brief. For an account of the conventions adopted, the abbreviations used, and reference sources consulted, please see our information pages.




Please note:
The arrangement here is the same as that adopted in our current catalogues, and as there our larger files are presented in sections for ease of downloading. At the end of each section you are invited to browse the next.

LITERARY PERIODICAL. CAPTAIN ROCK IN LONDON, Or, The Chieftain's Weekly Gazette. [London: J. Robins and Co. Ivy Lane, Paternoster Row; J. Robins, jun and Co. 38, Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin]. Nos.2-44, Saturday, March 12, 1825 - Saturday, December 31, 1825. F'cap 4to; pp.9-346. The numbers comprising the first annual volume bound up together, but lacking the first number, and pp.43-46, and 193-194; contemporary half-calf. Boards detached, and spine more or less lacking, but sewing sound, apart from the last number, a single leaf, which is loose; text variously dusted and foxed, two leaves torn across, without noticeable loss, and one or two small marginal tears; the last number creased, and frayed at upper margin; an acceptable binding copy, nonetheless, and a good run of a very scarce ‘twopenny unstamped' weekly paper.

This Irish nationalist newspaper, foundation of which seems to have followed hard upon the appearance of Moore's ‘Memoirs of Captain Rock' in 1824, ran to a total of 94 numbers under the present publishers before it was suspended at Christmas 1826. It reappeared briefly towards the end of 1827 under new publishers, only to vanish once more, finally, at the end of that year.
