a poem /
|Published / Created:||
London: : Printed for J. Hatchard ..., 1816.
A parody of Byron's A sketch from private life, one of two with this title, but differing text, published in 1816, the other being published by W. Hone.
First line reads: Born in the Chamber of the rich and great.
"Printed by S. Gosnell ... London"-- Verso of t.p. (p. ) and foot of p. 8.
Harvard University attributes the poem to Montagu Montagu, based on the fact that the work is bound as no. 1 in a volume of his privately printed leaflet and broadside poems. Cf. NUC pre-1956 v. 391, p. 397. Halkett & Laing, BLC, and Thomas J. Wise attempt no attribution.
HRC copy has inscription on t.p.: Mrs. Holroyd from M.M. [i.e. Montagu Montagu?]
