About This Item

352 Strand, London, 29 January 1824. 2 pp. 12 x 8 inches, integral address leaf, old repairs, some tears at folds and light stains. Henry Neele (1798-1828), poet and miscellaneous writer. ‘The breeze blows fair, the favouring sky/ Is bright with summer weather/ And here we’re met, in spirits high/ Seven happy souls together.’ Neele began publishing (anonymously) in the Monthly Magazine in 1814. His first volume, Odes and Other Poems, was published in 1817 at his father's expense, but attracted the attention of Dr Nathan Drake. A second edition appeared in July 1820. This was followed in March 1823 by his Poems, Dramatic and Miscellaneous, inscribed to the Scottish poet Joanna Baillie, which was reviewed extensively in The British Magazine of that year and had considerable success. As a result, he became a popular contributor to magazines and annuals for the rest of his short life. Neele committed suicide ‘in an access of insanity, under the delusion that his private affairs had become hopelessly embarrassed’ [DNB].
