About This Item

[Pope] Matthews, John, Eloisa en Dishabille: being a new version of that Lady's Celebrated Epistle to Abelard. Ascribed to Professor Porson. London, printed in the year 1822. 8vo, [ii;43;1], 19 cm, printed in parallel text throughout, full blue morocco with gilt edges and rosettes, gilded page edges, front hinge cracked but holding. Only fifty copies of this lively satire of Pope were printed, so stated on the verso of the half-title, by W. Hughes, 29, Maiden Lane, Covent Garden. First published in 1784, this copy has the book plate of Charles George Milnes Gaskell. Bookseller's tag of W. & G. Foyle, Ltd., London, is pasted in on the inside front cover.

Charles George Milnes Gaskell PC (23 January 1842 – 9 January 1919) was an English lawyer and Liberal Party politician. Milnes Gaskell was born in London,[1] the son of James Milnes Gaskell M.P., of Thornes House, Wakefield, Yorkshire, and Wenlock Abbey, Much Wenlock, Shropshire, and his wife Mary Williams-Wynn. He was educated at Eton College and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he graduated BA in 1863 and MA in 1866, and was called to the bar at Inner Temple in 1866. He was a J.P. and Deputy Lieutenant for the West Riding of Yorkshire and was Chairman of the West Riding County Council from 1893 to 1910. Milnes Gaskell had a long-standing friendship with the American Henry Adams who introduced him to Henry James. He invited both men to stay frequently at Wenlock Abbey, where he and his wife entertained many artists, writers, politicians and intellectuals of the day including explorer Isabella Bishop, artist Robert Bateman and writers Edith Sichel and Thomas Hardy.
