1822 1823 The Percy Anecdotes by Sholto and Reuben Percy
1822 1823 The Percy Anecdotes by Sholto and Reuben Percy The Percy Anecdotes were compiled by 'Sholto and Reuben Percy, Brothers of the Benedictine Monastery of Mont Benger.' according to the text but the names and the locality were fictional it is believed. Reuben Percy was Mr. Thomas Byerley, who died in 1824: he was the brother of Sir John Byerley, and the first Editor of the Mirror, commenced by John Limbird, in 1822. Sholto Percy was Mr. Joseph Clinton Robertson, who died in 1852: he was the projector of the Mechanics' Magazine, which he had edited from its commencement to his death. The name of this collection of Anecdotes was not taken from the popularity of the ' Percy Reliques,' as was generally supposed; but from the Percy Coffee House, in Rathbone Place, where the idea of the book was first started by Byerley and Robertson, who were accustomed to meet from time to time to talk over their joint work.
