ROSE, Edward H. Sea-Devil, The (1811)

Contemporary Reviews

Monthly Review, 2nd ser. 67 (Mar 1812): 320.

Only the first of these volumes is written by Mr. Rose, who died before the work was finished; and the remainder has Mr. Wild for its author. The conclusion is more moral than the beginning; in which, however, some humour will be found, though not of the most refined sort, and too evidently imitated from Fielding and Sterne. The last scene being laid in France, where M. Le Noir, Mirabeau, &c. are introduced, it is rather an anachronism to call this a romance of the present day.

Notes: Listed under ‘Monthly Catalogue: Novels’. Format: 2 vols 12mo; no price. Printed at Plymouth. The header to this review contains a footnote to ‘Edward Rose, Seaman’, directing readers to ‘See this author’s Trifles in Prose and Verse, mentioned in a subsequent page.’
