Dr. Syntax was a comic figure created by William Combe and cartoonist Thomas Rowlandson, and much enjoyed by Jane Austen for their satirizing William Gilpin, a chief proponent of the ‘picturesque’, in the comic poem The Three Tours of Dr. Syntax. He was also a famous Regency thoroughbred racehorse and sire (1811-1838), depicted by John Herring Sr. Blending the spirit of both, and their ‘connection’ to Austen, he appears now as you see him. Ready with quips, nips and carrots, the good Doctor takes the discerning on a tour through TBNLA, the Regency world of Austen and all things pertinent to ‘period’ in his dashing debut Canterlogue.
With a fair deal of ‘neigh-saying’, Dr. S. explores all the betting interests of Bath Novel ‘equipage’. Tacking up readers with all the tasty bits of news and views about TBNLA in a most unbridled fashion, the good doctor reveals why readers should race to acquire each and every Bath Novel.
