James Parkinson His Life and Times by A. D. Morris (auth.), F. Clifford Rose (eds.)

By A. D. Morris (auth.), F. Clifford Rose (eds.)

Dr. A. D. Morris had a protracted curiosity in, and nice familiarity with, the lifestyles and instances of James Parkinson (1755-1824). He was once an avid collector of fabric relating to Parkinson, a few of which he communicated to medi· cal and historic teams, and which he additionally included into publica· tions, specially his admirable paintings, The Hoxton Madhouses. whilst Dr. Morris died, in 1980, he left in the back of a wide typescript dedicated to Parkinson's existence. It was once single·minded in its commitment to basic texts, quoting liberally from the complete variety of Parkinson's writings. This was once relatively necessary on the grounds that such a lot of of Parkinson's courses have been tracts, pamphlets, or occasional items that are now very scarce. a replica of the complete manuscript has been deposited within the Library of the good· come Institute for the background of drugs in London, the place it can be consulted. The size of the manuscript made e-book of the full most unlikely, specially because it may have needed to contain the facsimile replica of Morris's The Hoxton Madhouses.

3. The Political Radical 27 A manifesto dated April 2, 1792, explaining the purpose of the Society, was printed and widely circulated. The manifesto made an immediate appeal to the middle and lower classes, especially the latter. Small tradesmen, journeymen craftsmen, shop assistants, industrial workers, and others of the laboring classes rushed to join what was virtually a working class movement. Many professional men, doctors and lawyers, and "gentlemen" also joined. Hardy himself was a protestant dissenter, an upright, honest man, whose character was irreproachable, and he attracted large numbers of dissenters and dissenting clergymen into the newly formed organisation.

The press was blamed for sowing sedi· tion and so were dissenting ministers, but the Government thought that the greatest danger lay in the reform societies. P. in the chair. Toasts were drunk to the "Rights of Man;' "A Free Constitution;' and "The 32 James Parkinson: His Life and Times Swine of England:' As a result a bill was brought before the Commons against seditious practices and assemblies, restricting the holding of public meetings and giving wider scope to the Statute of Treasons. Pitt, in a long speech in the House, spoke of a dangerous conspiracy being on foot; the country was on the verge of catastrophe, and he laid the blame squarely on The Rights of Man.

The younger Pitt had founded his bills upon plans laid down by his father, but even its sponsors, the Whigs, were not prepared to sacrifice property and influence. The bill of 1785 would have meant the gradual extinction of all the decayed boroughs and disfranchisement of them immediately. The borough-mongers, as the holders of rotten boroughs were called, were to be compensated at market value. As an indication of the value of "rotten boroughs;' Gatton, in Surrey, was sold in 1775 for £75,000.
