PALTOCK, OR PULTOCK, ROBERT. (Con.). Conquest. Produced at the Grecian Theatre, London 24 Dec. 1857. Not printed?

NOTE. We have ascertained that no person of the name of R. Paltock was admitted a member of Clement's Inn, he may, however, have practised there as a Solicitor without having been a member, or he may been simply a resident in the Inn. The first ed. of this work is said in Watt to be dated 1750, but we have not seen any copy of this date. In that of 1751 the dedication to The Right Honourable Elizabeth, Countess of Northumberland, is signed R. P. as is also the Introduction, pp. iii-xiii, and although it has been suggested that the letters R. S. on the title are a telonism of Peter Wilkins, it seems more probable to suppose that they are simply a misprint for R. P. In the copy dated 1751 in the Br. Museum the Dedication is bound up in the second volume. The authorship of this work was unknown until the year 1835, when in cataloguing a number of books and manuscripts which formerly belonged to Dodsley the publisher, Mr. Nicol, the printer, discovered the original agreement for the sale of the manuscript from "Robert Paltock, of Clement's Inn" to Jacob Robinson and Dodsley. The price given for the entire copyright was £21, twelve copies of the work and "cuts of the first impression" [i.e. a set of proofs of the engravings in the first edition]. The assignment in 1854 was penes Mr. James Crossley of Manchester. PARIS, JOHN AYRTON (son of Thos. Paris) Of Gonville and Caius Coll.
