An ad for The Pilgrim of Lurve

In amongst a few nuggets uncovered in a trawl of online newspaper archives: several advertisements for John Graham's epic poem, Geoffrey Rudel; or, the Pilgrim of Love (see my previous entry). This one appeared in The Morning Post, Tuesday, May 10, 1836. Another ad in the same paper a month of so later features the endorsement: 'He has exhibited a mastery over the Spenserian stanza'. Which is nice.
