William Maginn : 'Letters of Timothy Tickler Esq. to Eminent Literary Characters. No XII. To Christopher North, Esq.' in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine

'Piercy Mallory is an extraordinary work. In character it is inimitable not in original design but in amazing strength of colouring. In nature and interest it is defective but I cannot tell you the half I would say about it in this line. The Maga. is excellent. no dross. But I think I am still most delighted with old Tim of them all. He is uniformly the first I read and Wrestliana is the very thing for me.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: James Hogg      Print: Serial / periodical
