Description Oldmixon, John (1673-1742) London, printed by R. Tookey, for Rich. Parker, 1703 First edition John Oldmixon is best known for his histories, particularly his Critical history of England (1724-1726). This work caused controversy, especially in its defense of Bishop Gilbert Burnet. Oldmixon began his writing career as a poet and dramatist. His first publications were plays. Poverty turned Oldmixon’s pen from poems and plays to political pamphlets and newspaper columns. He was hired by one newspaper to counteract the views of Jonathan Swift, Daniel Defoe, and Alexander Pope, who included him in The Dunciad (1728). He was not adequately compensated for his efforts. He spent much time appealing to publishers such as the large firm of Jacob Tonson, for funding. His lifetime output, then, is indicative of the girthed Muse met by most professional writers of his day.
