Preface.

This Paper was not to come abroad without
a Preface as well as Comment, for
Instruction of our young Master, who
newly launch’d from the University
(where has has lost a year or two)
is not yet Travell’d, or if haply he has made le petit
Tour
(with the formal thing his Governour ) Whom the French call Maitre des ours, a Bearward having
never yet Read Tully’s Offices through, since he came
from School sets up for a Beau, and Equipp’d for the
Town at his Return, comes to seek Adventures in an
Ocean full of Rocks, and Shelves, and wants a skilful
Pilot to Steer him, as much as any Vessel that goes
to the Indies; and oftentimes returns home Leaky,
and as poorly freighted, as those who have been near
Shipwrack’d, or lost their Voyage.

It is for direction of such as are setting out towards
this great and famous Emporium (whether the design be
for Miss or Marriage) what Cargo he must provide;
not as Merchants do for America, Glass Beads, and
Baubles in exchange for Gold and Pearl; but Gold
and Pearl, and all that’s precious, for that which is of
less value than Knives and Children’s Rattles.

A2 You A2v

You see, Squires, what you are to prepare for as
Adventurers, or by way of Barter, if you think to
Traffick here, and to carry the Fair One, especially if
she be at her own disposal (or being come some
considerable time out of the Country) has been initiated
into the Conversation of the Town: The Refined
Lady expects her Servants and humble Admirers
should Court her in the Forms and Decencies of making
Love in Fashion: In order to this, you must often
Treat her at the Play, the Park, and the Musick;
present her at the Raffle, follow her to Tunbridge at
the season of drinking of Waters, though you have no
need of them your self: You must improve all occasions
of celebrating her Shape, and how well the
Mode becomes her, though it be ne’er so Fantastical
and Ridiculous; that she Sings like an Angel, Dances
like a Goddess; and that you are Charm’d with her
Wit and Beauty: Above all, you must be sure to find
some Fault or Imperfection in all other Ladies of the
Town, and to laugh at the Fopps like your self: With
this, a little Practice will qualifie you for the Conversation
and Mistery of the Ruelle; and if the whole
Morning be Spent between the Glass and the Comb,
that your Perruque fit well, and Cravat-Strings be
adjusted as things of importance; with these and the
like accomplishments you’l emerge a consummate Beau,
Anglice, a Coxcomb. But the Dancing-Master will
still be necessary to preserve your good Meen, and fit
you for the Winter-Ball.

Thus you see, young Sparks, how the Stile and Method
of Wooing is quite changed as well as the Language,
since the days of our Fore-Fathers (of unhappy Memory A3r
Memory, simple and plain Men as they were) who
Courted and chose their Wives for their Modesty, Frugality,
keeping at Home, Good-Housewifery, and other
Oeconomical Virtues then in Reputation: And when the
young Damsels were taught all these in the Country,
and their Parents Houses, the Portion they brought
was more in Virtue than Money, and she was a richer
Match than one who could have brought a Million,
and nothing else to commend her. The Presents which
were made when all was concluded, were a Ring, a
Necklace of Pearl, and perhaps another fair Jewel,
the Bona paraphernalia of her prudent Mother, whose
Nuptial Kirtle, Gown and Petticoat lasted as many Anniversaries
as the happy Couple liv’d together, and
were at last bequeathed with a Purse of old Gold, RoseNobles,
Spur-Royals, and Spankers, as an House-Loom
to her Grand Daughter.

They had Cupboards of Ancient, Useful Plate, whole
Chests of Damask for the Table, and store of fine
Holland Sheets (white as the driven Snow) and fragrant
of Rose and Lavender for the Bed; and the
sturdy Oaken Bedstead, and Furniture of the House,
lasted one whole Century; the Shovel-Board, and other
long Tables both in Hall and Parlour were as fixed
as the Freehold; nothing was moveable save JoyntStools,
the Black-Jacks, Silver Tankards, and Bowls:
And though many things fell out between the Cup and the
Lip, when Nappy Ale, March Beer, Metheglin, Malmesey,
and Old Sherry, got the Ascendant amongst the
Blew-Coats, and Badges, they sung Old Symon, and
Cheviot-Chase, and danc’d brave Arthur, and were able
to draw a Bow, that made the Proud Monsieur Trembleble A3v
at the Whizze of the Grey Goose-Feather: ’Twas then
Ancient Hospitality was kept up in Town, and Country,
by which the Tenants were enabled to pay their Landlords
at punctual day: The Poor were Relieved bountifully, and
Charity was as warm as the Kitchin, where the Fire
was perpetual.

In those happy days, Sure-Foot, the grave and steady
Mare, carried the Good Knight, and his Courteous Lady
behind him to Church, and to Visit the Neighbourhood,
without so many Hell-Carts, Ratling Coaches, and a crue
of Damme-Lacqueys, which a Grave Livery Servant
or two supply’d, who Rid before and made way for his
Worship.

Things of Use were Natural, Plain, and Wholesome;
nothing was superfluous, nothing necessary wanting; and
Men of Estate studied the Publick Good, and gave Example
of true Piety, Loyalty, Justice, Sobriety, Charity,
and the good Neighbourhood compos’d most differences:
Perjury, Suborning Witnesses, Alimony, Avowed Adulteries,
and Misses (publickly own’d) were Prodigies in
those days, and Laws were Reason, not Craft, when
Men’s Titles were secure, and they served their Generation
with Honour; left their Patrimonial Estates improv’d, to
an Hopeful Heir, who passing from the Free-School to the
Colledge, and thence to the Inns of Court, acquainting himself
with a competent Tincture of the Laws of his Country,
followed the Example of his Worthy Ancestors; and if he
Travell’d abroad, it was not to count Steeples, and bring
home Feather, and Ribbon, and the Sins of other Nations;
but to gain such Experience, as rendred him useful
to his Prince and Country upon occasion, and confirm’d
him in the Love of both of ’em above any other.

The A4r

The Virgins and Young Ladies of that Golden Age,
“quæsierunt lanam & linum;” INTERNAL ERROR. Please report to wwp@neu.edu that regMe is unmatched.Prov. 31. 13.19. put their hands to the
Spindle, nor disdain’d they the Needle; were obsequious,
and helpful to their Parents; instructed in the Managery
of the Family, and gave Presages of making excellent
Wives; nor then did they Read so many Romances, see
so many Plays, and smutty Farces; set up for Visits, and
have their days of Audience, and Idle pass-time. Honest
Gleek, Ruff, and Honours, diverted the Ladies at
Christmas, and they knew not so much as the Names
of Ombre, Comet, and Basset. Their Retirements were
Devout and Religious Books, and their Recreations in the
Distillatory, the knowledge of Plants and their Virtues,
for the comfort of their poor Neighbours, and use of the
Family, which wholsome plain Dyet, and Kitching Physick,
preserved in perfect Health: In those days, the
Scurvy, Spleen, &c. were scarce heard of, till Foreign
Drinks and Mixtures were wantonly in introduc’d. Nor
were the young Gentlewomen so universally afflicted with
Hysterical Fits; nor, though extreamly modest, at all
Melancholy, or less Gay, and in good Humour; they could
touch the Lute, and Virginal, sing “like to the Damask
Rose”
and their Breath was as sweet as their Voices:
They danc’d the Canarys, Spanish Pavan, and Selengers
Round
upon Sippets, with as much Grace and
Loveliness, as any Isaac, Monsieur, or Italian of them
all, can Teach with his Fop-call, and Apish Postures.

To shew you then, how the World is alter’d among us,
since Foreign Manners, the Luxury (more than Asiatick,
which was the final Ruine of the Greatest, Wisest, and
most Noble Monarchy upon Earth) has universally obtain’d
among us, corrupting ancient simplicity; and in what A4v
what extravagant Form the young Gallant we describ’d,
is to Court the Sex, and make his Addresses (whether
his Expedition be for Marriage or Mistress) it has been
thought good by some Charitable hands, that have contributed
to this Catalogue, to present him with an Enumeration
of particulars, and Computation of the Charges
of the Adventurer, as follows.

A B1r 1

A
Voyage to Maryland;
Or, the
Ladies Dressing-Room.

“Negotii sibi volet qui vim parare, Navim, & Mulierem, hæc duo comparato. Nam nullæ magis Res duæ plus Negotii Habent, forte si occeperis exornare. Neque unquam satis hæ duæ Res ornantur. Neque eis ulla ornandi satis satietas est.” Plaut. Poenulus. Act. I. Scen. 2. “Whoever has a mind to abundance of trouble, Let him furnish himself with a Ship and a
Woman,
For no two things will find you more Employment, If once you begin to rig them out with all their
Streamers,
B Nor B1v 2 Nor are they ever sufficiently adorned, Or satisfy’d, that you have done enough to set them
forth.”

He that will needs to Marry-Land

Adventure, first must understand

For’s Bark, what Tackle to prepare,

’Gainst Wind and Weather, wear and tare:

Of Point d’Espagne a rich Cornet,

Two Night-Rails, and a Scarf beset

With a great Lace, a Colleret.

One black Gown of Rich Silk, which odd is

Without one Colour’d, Embroider’d Bodice:

Four Petticoats for Page to hold up,

Four short ones nearer to the Crup:

Three Manteaus, nor can Madam less

Provision have for due undress;

Nor demy Sultane, Spagnolet,

Nor Fringe to sweep the Mall forget:

Of under Bodice three neat pair

Embroider’d, and of Shoos as fair:

Short under Petticoats pure fine,

Some of Japan Stuff, some of Chine,

With B2r 3

With Knee-high Galoon bottomed,

Another quilted White and Red;

With a broad Flanders Lace below:

Four pair of Bas de soy shot through

With Silver, Diamond Buckles too,

For Garters, and as Rich for Shoo.

Twice twelve day Smocks of Holland fine,

With Cambric Sleeves, rich Point to joyn,

(For she despises Colbertine.)

Twelve more for night, all Flanders lac’d,

Or else she’ll think her self disgrac’d:

The same her Night-Gown must adorn,

With Two Point Wastcoats for the Morn:

Of Pocket Mouchoirs Nose to drain,

A dozen lac’d, a dozen plain:

Three Night-Gowns of rich Indian Stuff,

Four Cushion-Cloths are scarce enough,

Of Point, and Flanders, nor forget

Slippers embroidered on Velvet:

A Manteau Girdle, Ruby Buckle,

And Brilliant Diamond Rings for Knuckle:

Fans painted, and perfumed three;

Three Muffs of Sable, Ermine, Grey;

Nor reckon it among the Baubles,

A Palatine also of Sables.

1 wordflawed-reproduction B2v 4

A Saphire Bodkin for the Hair,

Or sparkling Facet Diamond there:

Then Turquois, Ruby, Emrauld Rings

For Fingers, and such petty things;

As Diamond Pendants for the Ears,

Must needs be had, or two Pearl Pears,

Pearl Neck-lace, large and Oriental,

And Diamond, and of Amber pale;

For Oranges bears every Bush,

Nor values she cheap things a rush.

Then Bracelets for her Wrists bespeak,

(Unless her Heart-strings you will break)

With Diamond Croche for Breast and Bum,

Till to hang more on there’s no room.

Besides these Jewels you must get

Cuff Buckles, and an handsom Set

Of Tags for Palatine, a curious Hasp

The Manteau ’bout her Neck to clasp:

Nor may she want a Ruby Locket,

Nor the fine sweet quilted Pocket;

To play at Ombre, or Basset,

She a rich Pulvil Purse must get,

With Guineas fill’d, on Cards to lay,

With which she fancies most to play:

Nor B3r 5

Nor is she troubled at ill fortune,

For should the bank be so importune,

To rob her of her glittering Store,

The amorous Fop will furnish more.

Pensive and mute, behind her shoulder

He stands, till by her loss grown bolder,

Into her lap Rouleau conveys,

The softest thing a Lover says:

She grasps it in her greedy hands,

Then best his Passion understands;

When tedious languishing has fail’d,

Rouleau has constantly prevail’d.

But to go on where we left off,

Though you may think what’s said enough;

This is not half that does belong

To the fantastick Female Throng:

In Pin-up Ruffles now she flaunts,

About her Sleeves are Engageants:

Of Ribbon, various Echelles,

Gloves trimm’d, and lac’d as fine as Nell’s.

Twelve dozen Martial, whole, and half,

Of Jonquil, Tuberose, don’t laugh)

Frangipan, Orange, Violett,

Narcissus, Jassemin, Ambrett:

And B3v 6

And some of Chicken skin for night,

To keep her Hands plump, soft, and white:

Mouches for pushes, to be sure,

From Paris the trés-fine procure,

And Spanish Paper, Lip, and Cheek,

With Spittle sweetly to belick:

Nor therefore spare in the next place,

The Pocket Sprunking Looking-Glass;

Calembuc Combs in Pulvil case,

To set, and trim the Hair and Face:

And that the Cheeks may both agree,

Plumpers to fill the Cavity.

The Settée, Cupée place aright,

Frelange, Fontange, Favorite;

Monté la haut, and Palisade,

Sorti, Flandan, (great helps to Trade)

Burgoigne, Jardiné, Cornett,

Frilal next upper Pinner set,

Round which it does our Ladies please

To spread the Hood call’d Rayonnés:

Behind the Noddle every Baggage

Wears bundle Choux, in English Cabbage.

Nor Cruches she, nor Confidents,

Nor Passagers nor Bergers wants;

And B4r 7

And when this Grace Nature denies,

An Artificial Tour supplies;

All which with Meurtriers unite,

And Creve-Cœrs silly Fops to smite,

Or take in Toil at Park or Play,

Nor Holy Church is safe, they say,

Where decent Veil was wont to hide

The modest Sex Religious Pride:

Lest these yet prove too great a Load,

’Tis all compris’d in the Commode;

Pins tipt with Diamond Point, and head,

By which the Curls are fastened,

In radiant Firmament set out,

And over all the Hood sur-tout:

Thus Face that E’rst near head was plac’d

Imagine now about the Wast,

For Tour on Tour, and Tire on Tire,

Like Steeple Bow, or Grantham Spire,

Or Septizonium once at Rome,

(But does not half so well become

Fair Ladies Head) you here behold

Beauty by Tyrant Mode controll’d.

The graceful Oval, and the Round,

This Horse Tire does quite confound;

And B4v 8

And Ears like Satyr, Large and Raw,

And bony Face, and hollow Jaw;

This monstrous Dress does now reveal

Which well plac’d Curles did once conceal.

Besides all these, ’tis always meant

You furnish her Appartment,

With Moreclack Tapistry, Damask Bed,

Or Velvet richly embroidered:

Branches, Brasero, Cassolets,

A Cofre-fort, and Cabinets,

Vasas of Silver, Porcelan, store

To set, and range about the Floor:

The Chimney Furniture of Plate,

(For Iron’s now quite out of date:)

Tea-Table, Skreens, Trunks, and Stand,

Large Looking-Glass richly Japan’d,

An hanging Shelf, to which belongs

Romances, Plays, and Amorous Songs;

Repeating Clocks, the hour to show

When to the Play ’tis time to go,

In Pompous Coach, or else Sedan’d

With Equipage along the Strand,

And with her new Beau Foppling mann’d.

A new C1r 9

A new Scene to us next presents,

The Dressing-Room, and Implements,

Of Toilet Plate Gilt, and Emboss’d,

And several other things of Cost:

The Table Miroir, one Glue Pot,

One for Pomatum, and what not?

Of Washes, Unguents, and Cosmeticks,

A pair of Silver Candlesticks;

Snuffers, and Snuff-dish, Boxes more,

For Powders, Patches, Waters store,

In silver Flasks, or Bottles, Cups

Cover’d, or open, to wash Chaps;

Nor may Hungarian Queen’s be wanting,

Nor store of Spirits against fainting:

Of other waters rich, and sweet,

To sprinkle Handkerchief is meet;

D’Ange, Orange, Mill-Fleur, Myrtle,

Whole Quarts the Chamber to bequirtle:

Of Essence rare, & le meilleure

From Rome, from Florence, Montpellier,

In Filgran Casset to repel,

When Scent of Gousset does rebel,

Though powder’d Allom be as good

Well strew’d on, and well understood;

C For C1v 10

For Vapours that offend the Lass,

Of Sal-armoniack a Glass:

Nor Brush for Gown, nor Oval Salver,

Nor Pincushion, nor Box of Silver,

Baskets of Fil’gran, long and round,

Or if Japonian to be found,

And the whole Town so many yield,

Calembuc Combs by dozens fill’d

You must present, and a world more,

She’s a poor Miss can count her store.

The Working Apron too from France,

With all its trim Apurtenance;

Loo Masks, and whole, as Wind do blow,

And Miss abroad’s dispos’d to go:

Hoods by whole dozens, White and Black,

And store of Coiffs she must not lack,

Nor Velvet Scarfs about her Back,

To keep her warm; all these at least

In Amber’d Skins, or quilted Chest

Richly perfum’d, she Lays, and rare

Powders for Garments, some for Hair

Of Cyprus, and of Corduba,

And the Rich Polvil of Goa:

Nor C2r 11

Nor here omit the Bob of Gold

Which a Pomander Ball does hold,

This to her side she does attach

With Gold Crochet, or French Pennache,

More useful far than Ferula,

For any saucy Coxcomb’s Jaw:

A graceful Swing to this belongs,

Which he returns in Cringe, and Songs,

And languishings to kiss the hand,

That can Perfumed blows command.

All these, and more in order set,

A large rich Cloth of Gold Toilet

Does cover, and to put up Rags,

Two high Embroider’d Sweet Bags,

Or a large Perfum’d Spanish Skin,

To wrap up all these Trinkets in.

But I had almost quite forgot,

A Tea and Chocolate Pot,

With Molionet, and Caudle Cup,

Restoring Breakfast to sup up:

Porcelan Saucers, Spoons of Gold,

Dishes that refin’d Sugars hold;

Pastillios de Bocca we

In Box of beaten Gold do see,

C2 Inchas’d C2v 12

Inchas’d with Diamonds, and Tweeze

As Rich and Costly as all these,

To which a bunch of Onyxes,

And many a Golden Seal there dangles,

Mysterious Cyphers, and new fangles.

Gold is her Toothpick, Gold her Watch is,

And Gold is every thing she touches:

But tir’d with numbers I give o’re,

Arithmetick can add no more,

Thus Rigg’d the Vessel, and Equipp’d,

She is for all Adventures Shipp’d,

And Portion e’re the year goes round,

Does with her Vanity confound.
