Book Description Hutchinson, 1973. Hardcover / Hardback. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First edition. Hardback. Dr. Dodd, nicknamed 'The Macaroni Parson' because of his dandyish dress, was one of the most popular and successful preachers of the 18th century. The Quality, even Royalty - flocked to his famous 'temples'. He was a prolific author, a flamboyant orator, a busy socialite, a pioneer of the seaside, a founder of charities and a celebrity who knew everybody. But behind this colourful image, Dr. Dodd was always conscious of unhappy truths: of a reputation cobbled together with unkept promises, of mounting debts and favours unreturned. Then in 1777 he was charged with forgery and condemned to death. The book can be read on different levels: as a bizarre picture of social life at a time when the Church was in its darkest period of lethargy and graft; as a tragi-comedy of a man who, in a profession supposedly devoted to things of the spirit, was obsessed with personal ambitions and status symbols; or as a carefully documented history of the event which started the long process of the liberalisation of our laws, including the whole campaign against capital punishment. Illus., Notes, Appendix, Bibliog. and Index. 264pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Ex-lib. with the usual markings. G. in Vg. dw.

Book Description Hutchinson of London, London, 1973. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Very Good. First Edition. 264pp, index, bibliography, bw ills. Or maroon cloth in jacket. Page edges soiled. Jacket spine faded, 1" tear and some edge wear. Dr Dodd, nicknamed the Macaroni Parson because of his dandyish dress was one of the most popular preachers of the eighteenth century. He was a prolific author, busy socialite, pioneer of the seaside, founder of charities and a celebrity who knew everybody. Then in 1777 he was charged with forgery and condemned to death. A wave of sympathy swept the country. Dr Johnson, who personally despised Dodd lent his considerable authority to the appeal. Even the American War of Independence was forgotten for those weeks when "pity became the national epidemic" but to no avail. The Lord Chief Justice remained implacable and the law took its course. This book can be read as a bizarre picture of social life at a time when the Church was at its darkest period of lethargy and graft; as a tragi-comedy of a man who in a proffession supposedly devoted to things of the spirit was obsessed with personal ambitions and status symbols; or as a carefully documented history of the event which started the long process of liberalization of the laws including the campaign against capital punishment that has lasted to the present.
