BP notes: ‘Shortly after the publication of this work, a pamphlet was issued entitled, “A Key to the Royal Novel ‘The Exclusives’ ” (London: Marsh and Miller. Edinburgh: Constable.) // The Authors of the pamphlet state that, believing in the good accruing from satirical personality, they have paid special attention to the remarkable novel […] called “The Exclusives,” in order to extend the sphere of its usefulness by making the personality more apparent, and by supplying the real name of the characters who figure in its pages. It is further added that one of the objects of the story is “to delineate the real features of that mysterious society, so long known to exist in the very heart of the high classes, under the denomination of the ‘Exclusives.’ ” // At the back of the title is printed a Key to the Characters of the Story, the real names being indicated by some of the letters only. In the copy of the pamphlet, in the British Museum [now in the British Library] the majority of these skeleton names have been filled in by hand.’ BP for 1829 contains a copy of the key at the end of vol. OCLC 31042650 provides details of this ‘Key’.

Notes. List of contents, vol. 1, p. [v], precedes Preface, pp. [vii]–xii, which itself is dated ‘Dublin, 1st March, 1830’. The latter stresses the truly indigenous nature of the collection: ‘The reader may finally believe that these volumes contain probably a greater number of facts than any other book ever published on Irish life’ (p. xi). It also affirms that the author ‘has studiously avoided local idiom, and that intolerable Scoto-Hibernic jargon which pierces the ear so unmercifully—but has preserved every thing Irish, and generalized the phraseology, so that the book, wherever it may go, will exhibit a truly Hibernian spirit’ (p. xi). Vol. 1 comprises: ‘Ned M‘Keown’, pp. [1]–42; ‘The Three Tasks, or the Little House under the Hill’, pp. [43]–92; ‘An Irish Wedding’, pp. [93]–156; ‘Larry M‘Farland’s Wake’, pp. [157]–216; ‘The Battle of the Factions.

This notes: ‘The eminent personage who figures as the hero was in his time a pattern of wisdom, bravery, and generosity. He has been therefore chosen as a proper theme by the writer of romance, who spurning the bounds of reality, has created an ideal world of his own, with that wildness and extravagance of fancy which characterise an eastern imagination’ (pp. [v]–vi). It also states: ‘This circumstance has induced me, under the auspices of the High and Illustrious Personages who contribute to the Oriental Translation Fund, to offer to the public the following English version, as a specimen of the romance of a nation that has long ranked as the most refined in Asia’ (p. vi), adding that ‘The manuscript from which the present translation is made, was procured in the East in 1824. It gives no notice as to the place and time of writing’ (p. vii). The text is richly annotated with references to the original language, customs, etc. of the East. Printer’s mark and colophon of J.

Notes. Preface, pp. [iii]–v, notes: ‘The principal portion of the first part is made up from a personal narrative, and the peculiarities of the narrator resemble those of a singular, but worthy man. Some of his original letters are given in the Appendix as curiosities, and because they have been made use of in this work, and treat with feeling and sagacity of an impressive topic’ (pp. [iii]–iv). It also states: ‘The author having recently superintended a Colonial experiment of great magnitude, it may be imagined that in Judiville he has described his own undertaking. This is not the case; for the narrative embraces the substance of his knowledge, whether obtained by inquiry, observation, or experience. The subject is more important than novels commonly treat of.—A description, which may be considered authentic, of the rise and progress of a successful American settlement, cannot but be useful to the emigrant who is driven to seek a home in the unknown wilderness of the woods. […] The book, therefore, though written to amuse, was not altogether undertaken without a higher object’ (pp. iv–v). Appendix occupies pp. [297]–315 in vol. 3, followed by a glossary, pp. [317]–323.

Printer’s marks and colophons of Samuel Bentley, Dorset Street, Fleet Street. In his Memoirs of a Literary Veteran (London, 1851), vol. 3, p. 213, Gillies notes: ‘the first use I made of my little gasp of time was to finish a book, “Basil Barrington,” for which Mr. Colburn had already paid me £200 before it was written. But it was eventually spoiled, not for want of good will or industry on the part of the author, but because during the whole time which ought to have been devoted to it (namely, the six months previous), I was inevitably occupied in pecuniary arrangements, and in travelling about from London to Edinburgh, from Edinburgh to Aberdeen, and vice versa. At length my publisher became impatient for his book, which ought to have been completed long ago, and I fed the press with hasty scrolls till the stipulated number of pages were filled. Thus it turned out little better than a piece of mere mechanical work, and a good opportunity was lost.’

The present publication may in the same sense be denominated a paraphrase on the old ballad of the Children in the Wood’ (p. iv).

Notes. NSTC states that ‘Martin Doyle’ was Hickey’s pseudonym. Preface (3 pp. unn.), dated ‘Ballyarley, June 1st 1830’, notes that ‘some striking coincidences’ between the present work and the recently published Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry by William Carleton (1830: 37) are purely accidental, the author having not seen the prior work until after completing his own, as his ‘very respectable’ publishers can vouch for. The object of the author ‘has been to convey sound practical advice to the rural population of his country […] free from the vulgar caricature, as well as the coarseness and blasphemies, with which too many Irish tales of the present day, so copiously and offensively abound […] In the occasional introduction of Anglo–Hibernian diction, phraseology, and pronunciation, he trusts he has not deviated from the faithful delineation of Irish character, in the South Eastern parts of the Province of Leinster.’ Adv. as ‘Lately Published’ (verso facing t.p.) for the same author’s ‘Hints originally intended for the small farmers of the County of Wexford, but suited to most parts of Ireland […] a new edition, with Hints on the Cultivation of Tobacco.’ Printer’s mark of John S. Folds, 56, Great Strand Street.

Notes.

A few of the stories were composed purposely for children; but as people do not, now-a-days, write down to those little folks, and as the Author has herself, in common with her wisers and betters, a strong propensity to dip into children’s books when they happen to fall in her way, she by no means thought it necessary to omit them.’ List of contents, pp. [vii]–viii.

It adds: ‘As he [Niemcewicz] knew the Editor did not understand the Polish language, he presented him with a German translation of it, executed under his own inspection, from which the English edition now presented to the public has been translated’ (pp. [xvi]–xvii). In the preface the editor also describes his impressions of Jewish life received during a journey through Poland, and outlines Niemcewicz’s intention: ‘That gentleman [Niemcewicz] lamented the condition of so large a part of the population, and regretted, that for their own sakes, so little progress has attended the attempts that had been directed towards leading them to the knowledge and acceptance of the Christian faith. He said, that attempts had been made, as it was found impracticable to convert them into good Christinas, to convert them into good subjects, without interfering with their religious prejudices. As he thought a moral and industrious Jew better than a knavish and idle one, he had written a Tale, with the hope of benefiting them’ (p. xvi).

The same preface adds: ‘It may be hoped that the mere circumstance of Quintus Servinton’s being the first publication of this nature, that has ever issued from a Colonial Press, may induce a favourable reception of the undertaking, both here and in England; particularly, when it is borne in mind, that this Press exists in one of the most recently formed of the English Colonies’ (p. v). ‘Introductory Chapter’, signed ‘The Author’, occupies pp. [vii]–xvii. ‘Conclusion’, pp. 340–345, plus list of ‘Errata’ (1 p. unn.) at end of vol. 3.

Notes. The work contains two engravings, set as frontispieces, illustrating scenes from the constituent tales: ‘The Marquis Carantani interrupted at his favourite tree, by the young Marquis di Dalminico, and his Brother’; ‘Di Salvo Brought before the Tribunal at the Grand Inquisition’. Final page contains an untitled address by the author, which states: ‘The authoress of the foregoing pages, having arrived at the conclusion of her work, entreats the indulgence of the reader for the numerous errors which, doubtless, may be observed; though she trusts her work is free from those glaring defects which lead aside the understanding, and which enervate and corrupt the heart. The first attempt of an author must be feeble. Difficulties without number interrupt his progress. One, not the least among them, is the fear of having his efforts crushed once more by the voice of the critic. If but a trifling degree of merit is allowed by the generous heart, who can regard the feelings of an author, these pages will not have been written in vain; for who will then experience a portion of that pleasure which will reward her for all cares.’ Printer’s colophon reads: ‘W. Hodgetts, Printer, Spiceal-Street, Birmingham.’ Dating taken from Block.

This is followed by an address ‘To the Public’, pp. [lxxxv]–[lxxxvi], dated ‘London, January, 1830.
