[London]: A. Neil, 448, Strand, [1807]. Single sheet, 11 x 9 1/4 ins. Woodcut, colored (by a later hand?). In fine condition. Broadside ballad or song entitled 'The stylish wedding; or, matrimonial harmony'. Written by C.F.Barrett the verses are based on the true story of a wedding which took place in Stroud, Gloucestershire and ended in a fight between the bridegroom's daughter and the bride. Published October 1807 by A Neil, the broadside includes a woodcut engraving depicting the wedding reception before the fight broke out.'Sweetheart ballads' were particularly popular with Londoners. Printed by small back street printers primarily based in the Seven Dials area of London the ballads were sold by ballad hawkers trading on London's streets. The ballad writers would receive little reward from the printers for their efforts, reportedly sometimes only a few pints of ale.- See more at: (Item Id: 107033)
