(HOOK, Theordore. Editor). JOHN BULL. For God, The King, and The People. £ 1,500.00

London. R.T. Weaver; London. Edward Shackell 1820 - 1826. 6 vols. pp. 25 - 440; 441 - 856; 416; 424; 416; 424. Folio. Half calf, marbled boards. Hinges cracked but firm. Some foxing. A few tears affecting the text and some trimming of margins which due to the misalignment of the printing block can affect the text on one side only of some pages. The pages in some issues misbound especially in Volume 6. This copy of this weekly newspaper runs from issue No. 4 January 7th 1821 to No. 316 December 31st 1826. Volume 5 is lacking Issue 28 - July 10th 1825 and Volume 6 is lacking Issue 308 - 5th November 1826. The first three volumes are published by Weaver and the last three by Shackell. The first three have continious numbering of issues, the fourth volume reverts to starting with issue 1 as does the fifth. The sixth volume reverts to continious numbering so it starts with Issue no 264. This Tory paper could be vitriolic - 'On Mr Shelley's Poem "Prometheus Unbound." Shelly styles his new poem "Prometheus Unbound,"/ And 'tis like to remain so while time circles round; / For surely an age would be spent in the finding / A reader so weak as to pay for the binding.'
