Publication details: 
Wakeling's note, 36 Gerrard Street, Soho, [I]st Feby 1828.
SKU: 4098

Printer and antiquary. The item, 2pp., 4to, trimmed, some staining, chipped corner, hole in middle losing day from the date, comprises a note in the third person from Wakeling and some unrelated antiquarian notes in J.B. Nichols' hand. Wakeling, perhaps a funeral director as well as an upholsterer (although Wakelings appear in the British Book Trades Index) , formally informs Nichols that "a funeral Carriage will be provided for his conveyance". The notes in Nichols' hand (verso or address side of note just described) contain a discussion of Jacob Bryant's "A Vindication of the Apamean Medal and of the inscription . . ." (1775), perhaps preparatory to an article.
