  John Charles Spencer, 3rd Earl Spencer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
John Charles Spencer, 3rd Earl Spencer(1782-1845), English statesman, better known by the courtesy title of Viscount Althorp, which he bore during his fathers lifetime, was the son of George John, 2nd Earl (17581834), grandson of John (17341783), created 1st Earl Spencer in 1765, and great-grandson of Charles Spencer, 3rd Earl of Sunderland.
During the greater part of the reign of George IV the Whigs lost their legitimate influence in the state from their want of cohesion, but this defect was soon remedied in 1830 when Lord Althorp was chosen their leader in the lower house, and his capacity for the position was proved by experience.
The death of the 2nd Earl Spencer in November 1834, called his son to the upper house, and William IV took advantage of this event to summon a Tory cabinet to his side.

Lord Spencer's prime concern in building his collection was to acquire first editions of the Greek and Latin classics and to establish a complete collection of Aldines.
Spencer subscribed to many 18th- and early 19th-century publications, and his wide interests can be illustrated by the large number of editions of the works of Vitruvius, Andrea Palladio and Leon Battista Alberti which he possessed.
Today the Spencer Collection, including the libraries of Count Reviczky, Stanesby Alchorne and the Duke of Cassano-Serra, is of fundamental importance for the history of printing in Europe in the era of the hand-press, with all the important presses represented.

 Oak Knoll Books & Oak Knoll Press
George John, 2nd Earl Spencer (1758-1834) was one of the great book collectors (De Ricci 72-78), and rather inevitably, one supposes, attracted the services of Thomas Frognall Dibdin (1776-1847), who was Lord Spencer's librarian for a number of years and produced a four-volume catalogue (Bibl.
Spenceriana) of the Spencer collection in 1814-15, then "the handsomest and most elaborate catalogue of a private library yet issued" (De Ricci, p.75).
This copy does have the specimen of Polish type that does not always appear on page 87 of volume I. This set has the replacenent leaf that was issued in volume IV correctly bound into volume III but does not preserve the original unillustrated leaf of Volume III that was replaced.

 NYPL, James Gillray
In the far right foreground, Benjamin West, seemingly in collusion with John Boydell, in the center, sneaks away with Thomas Macklin, publisher of several of Gillray’s earliest plates, who planned a gallery dedicated to biblical illustrations and British poets, similar to the Shakespeare Gallery.
The spencer was a short double-breasted overcoat, named for George John Spencer, 2nd Earl Spencer (probably the figure on the left), who, according to one legend, wagered that he could start a fashion by trimming the skirts of his overcoat (allegedly clipped during a riding accident).
Although the high-waisted dress was popularized in France during the Directory and the Empire, M. Dorothy George observes that it “had an independent and earlier origin in England.” In 1793, Lady Charlotte Campbell had introduced the clinging high-waisted dress “imitating the drapery of pictures and statues,” with the breasts lightly covered or left bare.
