Towneley's French Translation of Butler's Hudibras. I wish before concluding the present Journey to correct an error in my former one, respecting this translation of Hudibras. I there attributed it to Col. Francis Towneley, being misled by Tytler in his Essay on Translation, and my error further confirmed by Nichols in his Biographical Anecdotes of Hogarth, aud by Ray in his History of the Rebellion, 1745, but I now find that it was John and not Francis Towneley, who was author of this translation, and that he was Uncle to Charles Towneley, Esq. celebrated for his noble and elegant collection of Marbles.
Third Journey round a Bibliomaniac's Library. W. Davis is preparing, and, if encouragement be given, will soon publish, A Third Journey, comprising an enlarged and corrected edition (being the third) of his Olio of Bibliographical and Literary Anecdotes and Memoranda, uniformly printed with his first and second “ Journies round the Library of a Bibliomaniac.”
Recently published, price 38. extra boards,
Riddles, Charades, and Conundrums, The greater part of which have never before been published;
“ And justly the wise man thus preach'd to us all,
Printed for W. Davis, at the Bedford Library, 15, Southamp
ton Row, Russell Square.
The Publisher considers this as a most acceptable present to the youth of both sexes, and has no hesitation in saying, that it is the most extensive and best Collection of Riddles, Charades, and Conundrums extant, the greater part now for the first time presented to the Public, by a Lady, and the remainder selected with the greatest care and attention, so as to render the entire Work an innocent exercise of ingenuity to youth, and a source of considerable amusement to the adult. He has also the gratification of being able to recommend it, as containing nothing that can raise a blush on the cheek, or offend the taste of the most fastidious female.
