Evidence

"I also return the Grimaldi MS. I have thought the matter over, and looked it over, too. It is very badly done, and is so redolent of twaddle that I fear I can not take it up on any conditions to which you would be disposed to accede. I should require to be ensured three hundred pounds in the first instance without any reference to the Sale-and as I should be bound to stipulate in addition that the work should never be published in Numbers, I think it would scarcely serve your purpose."

Notes
Letter to Richard Bentley. Note 5 (p.326) explains that this letter refers to Wilks?s revision of the memoirs of Joseph Grimaldi the clown (1779-1837), recently bought for ?85 by Bentley, who had asked CD to edit it. CD eventually agreed to undertake the work for ?300 and a share in the profits on condition that he appeared as the editor not the author. It was eventually published on 23rd Feb as Memoirs of Joseph Grimaldi (see p. 662 for the agreement between CD and Bentley.)
