  • 'My own magazine or independent periodical for 1833 to 1835 Vol 2’ by Daniel Charles Grose, [1766]-1838; topographical artist, antiquarian and author.Daniel Grose was a nephew of Francis Grose (1731-91), the celebrated author and artist, best known for his studies of medieval antiquities. On completion of his surveys of the antiquities of England, Scotland and Wales Francis Grose turned his attention to Ireland but died before his work there was completed. His nephew Daniel assisted in completing the work, which was published as the two volume Antiquities of Ireland in1791-5. Daniel produced a third volume or supplement in the 1820s, which was not published until 1991.Daniel Grose was a captain in the Royal Engineers and it is likely that he first came to Ireland, as a result of his uncle’s death in 1791, aged about twenty-five years. He subsequently took up permanent residence in Ireland, raised a family here and it is known that he died in Carrick-on-Shannon in co Leitrim in May 1838. He was a skilled topographical artist: 55 of the engraved images in the Antiquities of Ireland were based on the work Grose did in 1792. He continued thereafter to take an interest in the Irish landscape and antiquities and published articles and illustrations in The Irish Penny Magazine. ‘My own magazine or independent periodical for 1833-35 Vol[ume] 2’, is the only volume of this work known to be extant. It may have been intended for eventual publication or may have been a private work for the perusal of the author and his family. It has an illustrated title page, a blank front flyleaf and a preface; the verso of the last folio has a closing illustration and is followed by the slight remains of an index. The folios are grouped in fascicles of varying sizes and were originally stitched. The author has also used catchwords and the work has a contemporary pagination. Some of the illustrations have been done on the same paper as was that used for the text, and some have been pasted into position. The magazine contains a mix of subjects: tales of adventure, literary excerpts, scientific articles, and historical and topographical accounts of Ireland. Out of a total of 149 folios there are 11 full-page and over 25 half-page illustrations (apart from some minor details). The content is mostly in the form of manuscript text and illustration but in several instances it includes clippings from publications, which have been pasted into position and, in at least one instance, the author includes an autograph copy of an item he published in The Penny Magazine. Physically the volume was in a very fragile state when acquired with tears resulting in loss of text, and considerable damage and loss to the last part of the work: the folios have also suffered heavy staining and soiling. It was originally bound in black buckram. For further information see:
  • Purchased from De Búrca Rare Books, Blackrock, Dublin, September 1991. It came from an American dealer who acquired it in the Catskill Mountains.
