      Dear Professor Grimes,

      I have a vintage copy of “The Apocryphal” dated 1820 and was “Printed for William Hone, Ludgate Hill.”

      Do you know whom I may contact to determine the value of this book?

      Thank you in advance for your time and help.

      I live in Glastonbury, England, and am writing a piece on St. Dunstan. I would like to use a from this site – . It is a drawing of St. Dunstan holding the Devil by the nose with a pair of tongs.

      May I please have your permission to use this illustration?

      I will credit your website.

      Thank you,

      Dear Professor Grimes

      On tidying parts of my small library I came – again – across something I acquired in the 1980s when the old Wellington (NZ) public library closed. It is an 1817 edition of William Hone’s self-published accounts of the “three trials”. At the time – well before the internet became fashionable – I thought it was interesting.

      On looking through material on your website and checking other web material I realised HOW interesting Hone was – particularly the connection with Cruikshank – whose cartoons I have admired for many many years.

      Being both a lawyer and journalist with a particular interest in media law I should have known more about Crone. Your site has helped tremendously. Now I will look further.

      Thanks and

      Kind regards

      Richard Fletcher
