Alexander's Expedition Down the Hydaspes & the Indus to the Indian Ocean. (half title: Alexander's Expedition, to the Indian Ocean. With Historical and Philosophical Observations.)

(Beddoes, Thomas, M.D., 1760-1808, father of the eccentric poet Thomas Beddoes.) / (Madeley: Privately Printed by William Reynolds) London: Sold by J. Murr 1792
first edition with the the book labels of Bloomsbury Group members Lytton Strachey and Roger Senhouse; quarto (leaves 26 cm. tall), [half title leaf], [title leaf], iii-viii, [1]-48, 49*-54*, 49-90, [1] pp., as issued, title vignette, 8 illustrations in text, the last is full page and the others are head and tail pieces, printed on gray-blue paper, a poem with the prose observations beginning at page [49]; original paper covered boards with leather spine and corners; binding worn with chipping at spine and front cover detached, damp staining on covers and endpapers but only at light and narrow line at top margin of text, a few margin smudges, text block well sewn and overall good+; A very curious volume privately printed in the fairly remote village of Madeley, in his 1887 catalogue Bernard Quaritch states the compositor was a young woman (Murray was only the London distributor). The poem was written as a hoax in reaction to a discussion at the house of William Reynolds (this copy has an inscription on half title that reads "Presented to E. Lucy Leonard by Hannah Reynolds / Kelley Salop"; Leonard was minor poet Eliza Lucy Leonard who lived in Salop, Hannah was William's wife and has also drawn a gift label to ELL on front pastedown). Everyone was praising the poetry of Erasmus Darwin as "inimitable" but Beddoes had his own opinion, went home, wrote his own poem, and passed it off as Darwin's to his friends. When the poem was printed readers were left to draw their own conclusions. The uncredited illustrations are by the clerk of the local parish and intended to be mistaken for Thomas Bewick by the undiscerning eye. Martin (Privately Printed Books) p. 119. Volumes Included: 1
