|Description||Complains about the terrible piracy of the Royal Magazine. The first time it occurred was in the magazine's first number where an article on 'After dinner carpenting' appeared, copying a piece he had produced in his 'Pour Amusee les Petits'. They accepted the point and paid him a modest sum. On this occasion Good has asked for 25 livres. He had shown Boys in Paris that Cassell's house had published his book 'Magic at Home' under the name of the translator Hoffman, which was written in gold letters on the cover. He has much to complain about English publishers. And yet while he was in London, he saw several heads of illustrious journals and magazines, all of whom told him 'that this genre did not please the English public'. |
Stamped with Good's pseudonym, 'Tom Tit', on the first page.
