SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY THROUGH FRANCE AND ITALY. By Mr. Yorick. 2 Vols. in one.
Printed for G. Faulkner, J. Hoey, Sen., J. Exshaw, and H. Saunders., Dublin 1768 - First Dublin edition. 12mo. 4 x 6.5 inches. 120 pp. + 132 pp. Separate title pages, pagination and register for each volume. Half-titles. Bound in original calf, borders with traces of gilt, recently rebacked; spine in compartments with raised bands, with contrasting title label, gilt. Extremities a little worn and slight foxing, but otherwise a good condition. Ink ownership inscription of Wm Wolseley at top of title and pencil inscription of J C Bushby on first free endpaper. Illustrated with engraved coat of arms, Vol. II, p. 29, with vignettes in text and printer's devices on title pages. The first Irish edition, following the the first London edition of the same year. In spite of the author's remark in the advertisement at the beginning of Volume I, that subscribers 'have a further claim upon him for Two Volumes more,' the text is complete in two volumes. Unlike the London edition the Dublin one does not leave out the final full stop which gave it a more suggestive ending: 'So that when I stretched out my hand, I caught hold of the Fille de Chambre's.' Sterne's work proved an immediate bestseller, with four London, three Dublin and one Boston editions appearing in 1768 alone. A scarce edition; ESTC records only three copies in British libraries, with another two In Ireland and four in North America. ART / LITERATURE DUBLIN LIT. FICTION 18TH CENTURY ART / LITERATURE
