72 BROWN, Thomas. WARD, Edward. A Legacy for the Ladies. Or, Characters of the Women of the Age. By the late Ingenious Mr. Thomas Brown. With a Comical View of London and Westminster: Or. The Merry Quack; where-in Physic is Rectified for Both the Beaus and Ladies. In Two Parts. The First Part by Mr. Tho. Brown: The Second Part by Mr. Edw. Ward, Author of the London-Spy, &c. To which is prefixt, The Character of Mr. Tho. Brown, and his Writings, Written by Dr. Drake.
J. Nutt. London. 1705 
First edition. 8vo. Signatures. A1-8, b1-8, B1-N8. Collation: Title page, [ix] Dedication, [i] blank, xiv A Character of Mr. Thomas Browne..., [ii] contents, [iv] publisher's adverts, 192pp. Some slight worming to top inside corner, mostly in margin so hardly affecting text, small chip to top of title page professionally repaired. Handsomely and recently rebound in full speckled brown polished calf, ruled in blind, red leather lettering piece. New endpapers though retaining one original blank endpaper leaf at rear. A remarkably clean and fresh copy of this famous work by the man responsible for the line "I do not like thee Dr. Fell..." and well known satirist and libertine of his time. The 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica gives this verdict: "He was the author of a great variety of poems, letters, dialogues and lampoons, full of humour and erudition, but coarse and scurrilous. His writings have a certain value for the knowledge they display of low life in London." Presently the best description of Brown's legacy may be that of Joseph Addison, who accorded him the appellation "T-m Br-wn of facetious Memory". 61904
