Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: ... and Indecency. From a modern viewpoint, Fielding is not without guilt on this score--in spite of his declaration in the Prologue to Love in Several Masks that "Indecency's/ the bane to ridicule"; see Notes on C. G. J., No. 6, I. 168. 21. / I. 158. 36. under the Name of Sir Alexander. In the Familiar Letters, Henley Edit., XVI. 8, Fielding speaks with much feeling of the insult to his name offered by those who attributed to him The Causidicade. Shamela, Roderick Random, A Speech made in the Censorial Court, etc., were other works attributed to Fielding; see also C. G. J., No. 72, II. 142. 3. I.159.9. Art. 8: referring, perhaps, to the Covent-Garden Journal ll Extraordinary advertised in the General Advertiser, No. 5383, Mond., Jan. 20, 1752, to appear on the noon of that day.

In the Champion he has a Court of Censorial Inquiry, in his Jacobite's Journal there is a Court of Criticism. This Court is not run in every number, but is found in Nos. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 21, 24, 28, and 72, and is called a Court of Censorial Enquiry. Fielding does follow out his rules...
