[?WILLIAMS (Sir Charles Hanbury)]: S---ys's budget open'd; Or, Drink and be D-----'d A New Ballad, To the Tune of A Begging we will go.
London: Printed for W. Webb..., 1743. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. Folio, 312 x 195 mms., pp. VIII, disbound; no half-title. This satire on the repeal of the gin act is tentatively attributed to Sir Charles Hanbury Williams 17081759). As Foxon points out the canon of Sir Charles Hanbury Williams presents many difficulties. The collections of 1763, 1768, and 1822 contained many poems not by him. Foxon states that any poems not vouched for by Horace Walpole in his annotated copy of the 1763 collection should be treated sceptically. The present poem was not in the earlier collections and was not attributed to him until the edition of 1822. Foxon concludes "the authorship is perhaps questionable." Williams had been elected to Parliament in 1735 and supported Walpole until his resignation in 1742, just before the riots of 1743 against the increase in tax on gin that had been put in place in 1729. Pelham's government, in response to the riots, proposed to reduce penalties and duties. Still, in the 1740s, the British managed to drink about eight million gallons of gin each year. Foxon W480. The press variant in which page VI is misnumbered V. Simon Biblotheca Gastronomica 637 (probably this copy). From the John Lyle collection of books on food and drink. When Andre Simon died in 1970 John Lyle was involved in the dispersal and many Simon books were transferred to his collection. I have not been able to see the Ph. D. dissertation, The Works of Sir Charles Hanbury Williams (1988) by T. D. S. Urstand, which examines Williams' canon. ESTC T109560 locates copies in the BL (2), Cambridge, Bodleian, Oxford All Souls, Manchester, and Brotherton Leeds; Harvard, Lilly Indiana, Clark, North Carolina, Yale Walpole, and Yale Beinecke.
