Music scholar and lawyer; friend of Samuel Johnson and Horace Walpole.
Compiler of a manuscript verse miscellany showcasing the work of the London-based Phillibrown-Hawkins network.
Thomas Phillibrown, 1740–1757.
Divided into sections according to odd and even numbered pages.
Very London oriented (Public affairs, local interest, celebrities).
Reflects a mid-century coterie centering around John Hawkins and Moses Browne.
Some or all of the miscellany's compilation period falls within this timespan
