¶ A serious dissection of people of fashion, which the author maintains in the preface has not been previously attempted, and he provides an outline for further study. Owen (1766-1822) was a founding member of the British and Foreign Bible Society, and though he tends to be a little moralistic in his approach, it is nonetheless interesting: he writes about the man of fashion, party givers, games, rakes, dress, language and includes one poem: “Ode on the Spring. By a Man of Fashion.”.
