(Tegg, Thomas:) Eccentric Biography; or Lives of Extraordinary Characters; Whether Remarkable for their Splendid Talents, Singular Propensities, or Wonderful Adventures. London, Glasgow, Dublin & Paris: printed for Thomas Tegg [...] et al, 1826. 12mo., pp. iv, [ii], 330 + frontispiece. Some foxing, particularly to title-page, occasional brief pencil markings. Half dark green morocco, gilt spine with title, green textured cloth boards, marbled edges and endpapers. A bit rubbed, corners wearing, endpaper split at upper hinge but holding firm, very good. Illegible signature to preliminary blank; pencilled inscription of Dampier Vernon, Belle Vue, Topsham to head margin of Preface A versatile and opportunistic publisher, Thomas Tegg (1776–1846) had three main strands to his business: 'he issued many reprints of books which had gone out of copyright; he purchased remainders, sometimes with the copyrights, from other publishers, and sold them at greatly reduced prices; and he produced a number of original works, often on commission' (ODNB). Eccentric Biography is an example of this last category of often-sensational literature, other similar titles including Albani, or, The Murder of his Child; Almagro and Claude, or, Monastic Murder Exemplified in the Dreadful Doom of an Unfortunate Nun; and Domestic Misery, or, The Victim of Seduction. The title of this volume is perhaps inspired by Tegg's former premises 'The Eccentric Book Warehouse' at 122 St John's Street, West Smithfield, though by the time of its publication he had acquired the Old Mansion House at 73 Cheapside from which he traded for the rest of his life.   Ref: 51775
